Oh, almost forgot: Brainiac can now have the iffy “New York Times Bestseller!” banner on its paperback cover, since it made it to #27 (the Extended List, i.e. not the real list but still very flattering) in its first week. Thanks to everybody who helped make that possible! Please buy ten more, Scientologist-style, this coming week. That is all.
Another effective strategy would be for you to somehow get Hugo Chavez to mention your book. Hugo singlehandedly boosted Noam Chomsky from obscurity to #4 on Amazon. You should have your people talk to his people and work something out. Maybe offer Chavez a role in the movie adaptation of the book. I think he'd go for that.
