As the Year Comes to a Close
Newsletter Exclusive Coupon Code Inside
Hey, gang! I hope you’re all doing well this fine December day. First off, I wanted to welcome the new subscribers to this dreary little corner of internet, where everything is tinged orange and black, even in December.
I’ll be honest: I almost didn’t write a newsletter this month. I’m not sure why exactly. I guess I’m just feeling the ol’ holiday crunch. Thanksgiving may be behind us, but there’s still the frantic sprint through Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s Eve. Not that we celebrate all of the holidays, but still. December is jam-packed.
Here’s a picture of my Thanksgiving meal for some reason. (I swear, there’s turkey under all that gravy).
As much as I’d like to go all in on the holidays, I still have another week of classes to teach followed by a massive stack of final essays to grade. Until then, I’ll be playing The Grinch on a constant loop as I sneer at my computer screen.
I guess I’ll give you the November stats, even though they are incredibly pathetic.

Tommy and the Order of Cosmic Champions News
In some slightly more exciting news, my recent novel, Tommy and the Order of Cosmic Champions, has been doing incredibly well. We have 25 reviews on Amazon with a 5-star rating, and 36 ratings on Goodreads with a 4.44 star average. We are also still riding high as the most wished for novel in “Teen & Young Adult Fiction on Runaways.”
Tony Grate and I also did a couple interviews last month, one of which was a livestream that you can watch now! The second interview should be available soon on YouTube, and I’ll be sure to share links on all my social media.
Here’s one last video from Pixel Dan who did a really cool review focusing mostly on the special merch we have for the novel, including the action figures.
I hope you’ll all consider checking out the novel in one of its many forms (ebook, hardcover, or audiobook), as it was a true labor of love that I think you’ll really dig.
As always, thank you all so much for hanging out with me. If you made it this far, you deserve a reward. As promised, I have a coupon code for my web shop, www.anthonyjrapino.com/shop, where you can purchase all of my novels signed, t-shirts, hats, mugs, and so much more.
