A call to all Fans of Unicorn Jelly!

It seems that Amazon has picked up Unicorn Jelly in both paperback and Hardback, and that is kind of amazing to me.

I wonder if you might do me a big favor and go give the books a nice, shiny review? I'd like to see them do well.

Now I won't make anything off of this - as mentioned many times before, we don't really make any profit to speak of, off of book sales.

But then, Unicorn Jelly wasn't published to get me rich - that would be impossible in any case. It exists as a book because fans thought it was worthwhile to have that happen, and they made it happen. The Society of Mundis, some of them are you, here, perhaps.

But it matters greatly to me that it should be owned by many people, read by many people. That Amazon is offering it makes that happen all the better. It would be wonderful if... Unicorn Jelly was even noticed at all, on Amazon. That would be something.

So, if you want to help, by writing a quick, glowy review, to raise its status in the world, here are the links:

Hardback on Amazon:

Paperback on Amazon:

Maybe now I can order a copy through my bookstore, instead of having to order one online.
(It sucks not having a credit card... :frown: )

Allright, Plasman was the first to answer Jennifer.
At first I didn't want to post here, because anyone reads Jennifer's postings, but everyone ignores mine, :wink: :P
(Well Jennifer, ignore my PM.)

I did SO read your message, Anna!!! :P It's just I read this one first... and I didn't want to duplicate myself!
(That's so annoying, having to put up with one's duplicate... lucky I dug that quicklime pit, then... :twisted: )

Anyway, I'm going to try and order the book again. It seems that the bookstore's website lists the paperback edition now, so there's a better chance of the clerk actually knowing what I'm babbling about! (I want the hardcover edition, but beggars can't be choosers.)

By the way, I feel bad that you're not getting any sort of payment for the book, Jennifer (apart from the satisfaction that someone is reading your work). I may have to get better acquainted with PayPal, though living with different currencies is going to be a hassle...

EDIT: Is that your review on the book's Lulu site, Anna? I know you already have the book...

Why, exactly? I'd think that a site like Amazon would try to get as many books on its system as possible, and your creation is a book... ;]

I also noticed this... No cover image yet, but
^v^

That hardback link Jennifer posted doesn't work any more, but the paperback one still does. If you like it, buy it!
(Hope my review is ok...)
