Big doin’s here at the Electric Chronicles! I got my review copy of the book yesterday (…I’ll spare you the video of me opening the box like a giddy teenager) and it looks AWEsome. I’m toying with the idea of leaving Harry Ma L L in’s name in there all misspelled and stuff just to annoy him.
I also got the thing up on Kindle this week too:

I’ve also put together an email list, something I’ve resisted for a while, what with Twitter and Facebook and RSS and all that… but when the book came out I wanted to send a note to people I knew may be interested. I’m not going to be sending out a monthly email blast or anything, but if you want to hear about major events once in a while, sign up here. Here’s what that looked like, and the linky if you missed it:
In other AWESOME NEWS, take a look at the latest post on Asphalt and Rubber! Apparently the whole Brammo Empulse release thing that I’m poking at isn’t that far off – or at least I’m not the only one who connected the dots and got a picture of a company trying to solve a cooling problem. Jenson goes into some pret-t-ty interesting details on the story, do check it out for some good behind-the-scenes industry information.
ALSO, I’ve met up with a few great folks from Home Power Magazine who want me to write up a piece on e-bikes, scooters, motorcycles and electric superbikes! Look for that soon, I’ll excerpt some of it here…
Happy Mothers Day weekend to all, and thanks for the support! I dedicated …from Fossils to Flux to my Mom- Bernardette Dillard – who passed away in August last year, because although she never was quite sure what I was up to, she was always my biggest supporter (and toughest critic). She tolerated my love of motorcycles since my earliest days riding, something that I realized is probably one of a mother’s toughest challenges, now that I have my own son. She bought me my first jacket to keep me safe… my son now wears that jacket, and will be wearing it when we try to break 100mph with the new bike. (But don’t tell his Mom!)
Here’s to you, Mom, and though I miss your voice, I know you’re always there… watching out for all of us!
Best wishes, and thanks again to all!
