Pre-order Falcons On the Floor today. Do it. Do it now.

1 Dec

It’s no secret.

I’ve been a huge supporter of all the awesome things Justin Sirois and Haneen Alshujairy have cooked up over the past few years. MLKNG SCKLS was one of the first books on the Vouched table, and continues to hold a place there today. I pushed as hard as I could to support the Understanding Campaign in its fledgling state as a blog, and then later for their huge Kickstarter undertaking.

And now, I’m so stoked to have gotten this email from Publishing Genius Press today about the launch of pre-orders for Falcons on the Floor, a book I’ve been anticipating for a long, long time:

I’m excited to announce that Justin Sirois’s much anticipated novel, Falcons on the Floor, is up for pre-order today! This one means a lot to me because of the scope of the book. It’s about Salim and Khalil, two young friends escaping Fallujah, Iraq, at the height of the war. Carefully researched with Haneen Alshujairy, herself an Iraqi refugee, Falcons on the Floor was praised by Dahr Jamail for its “deep understanding of what occupation does, to civilians and soldiers alike.”

Order it in the next few days for just $12 and you’ll get a signed copy bundled with a unique art print (see it below). Plus you’ll be entered to win a bonus hardcover version (very limited edition). More information is at www.FalconsontheFloor.com. The book should ship in December, but it’s not out officially till March.

I can’t recommend this book enough. It’s very existence means the world is and can be a better place.
