As you may know, RSM founder Wayne Franklin recently published his first novel, Midlife Mouse. The book has been on sale for only $1.99 for the last week at Amazon’s Kindle Store.
As happens with these types of promotions, he had a surge of activity for the first few days, the result of which was that the book reached as high as the top-10 of Amazon’s bestsellers list for satire, surrounded by names like Vonnegut and Heller. It was also listed as a “Hot New Release” in satire for a week, alongside Carl Hiaasen and Helen Fielding.
The $1.99 sale will end this Thursday, June 13, but Wayne wants to go out with a bang. His goal is to make Midlife Mouse #1 in satire for that day. That’s where you come in.
Wayne has created a day-long, online event during which fans of Midlife Mouse (and RSM) can help get the word out about the last day of the sale. He’s calling it MouseFirst Thursday.
As to why you should help, this quote from the announcement about MouseFirst pretty well sums it up:
You love the South. As much as Midlife Mouse is about Disney, it’s also steeped in Southern culture. Even our friends from up north have praised the charming portrait of Southern life the book paints. Readers have made comparisons to works by Daniel Wallace, Fannie Flagg, Mark Childress and Winston Groom.
