The Developers by Ben Woods

The Developers

Contract inked with nationwide distributor

It's official: The Developers has an official distributor. Biblio Distribution, out of Lanham, Md., will handle all distribution of The Developers, effective immediately. OK, it's sort of effective immediately because right now, Biblio doesn't have any books. But I've just ordered a third printing, and the company should have the books at the beginning of March.

Next stop: Destinations in New Albany

For my third straight weekend, I'll be making a book appearance, this time in New Albany, Ind. I'll be at Destinations Booksellers (604 East Spring Street) at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4. Destinations is a relatively new bookstore, but the place definitely does great work in supporting local authors. And of course, you can find a lot of main stream books there as well.

I will also be introducing my local publicist, Elizabeth Woods, for the first time. Elizabeth is my grandma, one of the main proofreaders for 'The Developers' and an avid bingo player.

Recent publicity in the Evansville newspaper

Although this occurred two weeks ago, the Evansville Courier & Press ran a little article about me and my book, "The Developers" just before my signing down there. The paper may do a review at a later date, but I was extremely pleased with Becky Coudret's article. Here it is:

Humor/ tech writer at Border's

By REBECCA COUDRET Courier & Press staff writer 464-7509 or coud@evansville.net

January 21, 2006

Ben Woods calls himself a humor/technology writer - which has to be considered a new genre of literature.

Three appearances down, many more to go

I haven't quite made it as far as M.C. Hammer, from London to the Bay, but I have made it to Evansville in Indiana and Owensboro and Brandenburg in Kentucky the past two weekends. I've seen a lot of friends I haven't seen in awhile, and I've also made a few new ones.

Thanks to everyone for coming out to support "The Developers" ... and if I haven't made it to your town yet, hopefully I'll be there soon!

Next stop: Brandenburg (Ky.) library

I will begin what I hope will be a somewhat lengthy book tour when I visit the Brandenburg Library 12-2 p.m. Jan. 28 to discuss book publishing and my new book, "The Developers." The book is currently available at many regional Borders and independent bookstores, as well as the book's website, thedevelopersbook.com, and Amazon.com. It is also now available through Baker & Taylor, a national distributor.

BookPleasures.com: Book a 'a funny and engrossing tale'

John Walsh of BookPleasures.com gives us the latest word on "The Developers" with his recent review. Here are the highlights:

"Many people will find this to be a funny and engrossing tale and will enjoy the ups and downs of the plot and the grotesque bit part characters."

Book signings in Owensboro, Evansville this weekend

Join me on Saturday, Jan. 21, to check "The Developers" and book signing event. I will be at the Evansville Borders (6401 East Lloyd Expressway) 12-2 p.m. and at Owensboro's Beyond the Brim (Wesleyan Park Plaza) 4-6 p.m. The book is currently available at these locations, as well as other regional bookstores and Amazon.com. It is also now available through Baker & Taylor, a national distributor.

Even if you already have a book, or you don't want to buy one, or you don't know how to read, come out to the locations and say hi!

Illinois magazine reviews 'The Developers'

Katie Richardson of Buzz Magazine in Champaign, Ill., compares "The Developers" to a couple of classic books in her recent review of the novel.

"This is a must for anyone who really dug "1984" or "Brave New World" but also likes to surf the net from time to time, preferably with the idea in the back of your head that Big Brother could be watching," Richardson wrote.
