This morning I got an email from the publisher of The Geek’s Guide to Dating in Chinese, United Sky. Back in 2013 I never would have imagined my lil’ book would go on to be translated into eight languages. It’s currently just $1.99 on the Nook, and will be all day today (7/20) and through end-of-day tomorrow.

The book is out now, and they’re sending me a few interview questions… My lil’ non-fiction humor book came out with Quirk Books back in 2013, and has had quite the wild ride.

Smith, who addresses the reader as “Player One,” provides tips on how to “hack” online dating profiles, the proper etiquette for approaching women on Facebook and Twitter, and the best locations for meeting like-minded women in real life.

He walks readers through a first date simulation, outlining effective conversation strategies and topics to avoid.
