Here’s a link to a video of a Socrates in the City address by Os Guinness on the difficulties of sustaining freedom. (I can’t seem to get it to embed here. Sorry.)

My thanks to those of you who participated in yesterday’s Kindle ebook giveaway of Why We Raise Belgian Horses. Freebies don’t count in the sales rankings of paid books, so the book is back down in the lower midlists after a fun flight amongst the bestsellers – but now it’s in a better position to generate ‘likes’ at Amazon, and reviews, and recommendations, and thus generate sales that will show up (and that put money in my pocket). That’s all I can hope for, from a giveaway.

Well, that, and hope that people who like this one might buy another one of my books, or give this one as a gift, in ebook, trade paperback, or large print.

Or that they’ll link to the book from their website or at Twitter or Facebook, or feature it in their affiliate links, all of which (as I understand it) combine with sales data to drive up the “Relevance” ranking at Amazon.

Welcome to the wacky world of publishing, where everything is a calculated risk, at best.
