Still the live announcement

Operation Red File was a success.

Time for a new mission now as we get ready for Rebirth.

There is something I thought we could do to help with its launch, to show some more appreciation to the creators and that I was trying to put into motion. But for that, I'm really really going to need all your help - and all the fan base and beyond. This is going to be the first Pretender book novel. There will be more books and graphic novels too, but, I mean, this has be to a success from day 1 to show Steve and Craig how much we love them and how much we love that they are loyal to the fans and are actually doing this all for us. So I thought we could somehow raise a movement to get all the fans to buy the book on the day it's released to get it to the top of Amazon's book list and maybe raise some more attention to the Pretender coming back. But for that I'm going to need your help, because I can't do it all on my own and I know what we're capable of (ever since 1999 and 2000!).

How are we going to do that, you ask?

Well, for starters, I tried to put word out there on the shout box and Twitter that “the Pretender army” (the fans of the Pretender) are there for the creators. The Pretender Army seemed to be catchy - think of it as Dumbledore's army on Harry Potter :)

And we needed a name to our special mission and that is… #MissionRebirth

Our Mission as fans, if you'd be so kind as to join me in this crazy adventure, will be to get Rebirth on the best sellers list of new launched books on Amazon on day 1. That’s our goal. To get every single fan to buy it right there and then on October 7th.

What do you say, do we have an "army"?

If you can help, be sure to pass on the messages on your websites, twitters, facebooks, forums and anywhere you can come up with because we have only 2 weeks to get this baby to where it belongs and that’s high up!
