A Quick Note of Apology: Before I get into my review, I’d just like to apologize to Bryan and any of the fans/readers who have been awaiting the next leg on The Worker Prince blog tour. I live out in the boonies, and have been on the phone with Verizon for 30 minutes after fussing and cussing my new MiFi and not being able to get an internet connection for more than a few minutes at a time for the past three hours! Imagine my embarrassment when I got the coolest and nicest tech to walk me through all kinds of cool things to get it optimized for my rural area, and whatnot. So, it was bad enough I had to wait until after my day job to post it already. All in all, this wasn’t professional and not “the way I roll” at all. I’m sorry guys. Hope you’re all still in the mood for a really good story by an insightful and creative writer.
This past week, or so, I’ve been reading Worker Prince by Bryan Thomas Schmidt to be prepared for the author’s blog tour push. I first volunteered for a spot in the tour a couple of months back. At the time, I only did it because it sounded like a fun way to help out. I really only knew Bryan from Twitter and his weekly chat sessions there. I have really enjoyed the atmosphere on his #sffwrtchat author spotlights and chat sessions. And the guy did help me come up with the term Slushpimp. So, I had to help out, didn’t I? The book blurb sounded solid, so I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed at the very least.
