Eros and Ethos – Version Update to v1.1

by Jason Stotts

I am releasing a minor update to Eros and Ethos, details of which can be found in the changelog.

It will start with an update to the ebook effective today. The ebook will also be getting a new cover, due to the old cover violating advertising TOS against “nudity” and us being unable to use it in ads.

The paperback will be updated sometime in the next week, once I get an updated proof and make sure the update won’t break anything in the print edition. That said, if you want a true first edition paperback, you had better order it now as they won’t be available much longer.

To celebrate this update, the ebook will be on sale for $4.99.

Note: If you have already purchased the ebook, you can update to v1.1 for free by following this guide.

Eros and Ethos: 60 Days Out

by Jason Stotts

I am very pleased to announce that in the first 60 days, Eros and Ethos has sold 111 copies! This is an excellent start and I am very thankful to everyone who has bought a copy of the book so far.

(Note that some book sales have been through my website and aren’t reflected above.)

As you can see, the vast majority of the sales have been eBooks and from the US.

During the first 60 days, I’ve also been a guest on the “Objectivist Discussions” on YouTube:

I also have several more podcast interviews lined up, so stay tuned for that.

While there has not been a formal review published anywhere, there is one in the works and I’m hoping that a second might be underway as well. On the informal side, the reviews on Amazon have been really great. So far, there are 11 reviews and its rating is 4.9/5!

To celebrate all this good news, Eros and Ethos is on sale this weekend.

What can you do to help?

  • Leave a positive review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Even a couple of sentences can make a big difference to someone who isn’t familiar with the book and is on the fence about buying it.
  • Tell your friends. Word of mouth is one of the best ways that a book sells.

I hope that sales will continue to increase and my next update will contain even more good news. I also hope to announce that the audiobook version of Eros and Ethos will be out soon.

Newsletter Upgrade

by Jason Stotts

I am currently in the process of transitioning my email list from a self-hosted solution to MailChimp. I’m hoping that this will make the newsletter a little more functional and nicer looking. As an added bonus, new sign-ups for the newsletter will get a free copy of the Introduction from Eros and Ethos. If you previously signed up for the email newsletter and would like the Introduction, please email me and I’ll send it out to you.
