People On the Internet Whom I Like

This post is long overdue, but now that I actually have some regular readers to share it with (cheers), it can actually do some good.

I actually know some of these people, too.

Someone I don't even know has written a review for Mister Mercury

'Member that "book" thing that I wrote?

I'm not dead, I'm just in Oregon

Few things are more irksome to read than "I'm sorry I haven't posted on my blog" posts on blogs. Luckily for you, I apologize to no one and answer to no man (or woman), as, being the greatest human being since Douglas Adams (the only man I'll admit who's greater than myself), it is the rest of the world who ought to thank me for the attention I give to it, and therefore not my responsibility to apologize for perceived misbehavior of any kind.

My short story collection is free now because it's so great and everyone should read it

In the spirit of giving and kindheartedness, I've decided to say "thank you!" to my loving and caring fans by releasing my short story collection for free! Go and download a copy like many people have before! It reads on every device with a screen, and some that don't (depending on whether you're reading this in the future where we've developed totally awesome text to speech technology with proper enunciation and doesn't sound like a pair of robots fighting each other).

Revisions, revisions

Want to know something weird? When I posted about my Devil Still Has My Lawnmower short story collection, I actually LOST half my traffic! It eventually picked up after a few days, but still, for a while there it kinda seemed like my readers didn't want to be reminded that I'm a writer who occasionally publishes things and wants to sell them to people.

Instead of an April Fool's Day joke...

Well, I kinda wanted do something for April Fool's Day, but I realized that I'd just be rehashing a frankly quite tired tradition that even old people don't find funny anymore.  I mean, if the Daily Sun, my former workplace, still does it, how clever can it be?

So instead, I'm going to give you a present! What is it, you ask? Why, it's only an ebook version of The Devil Still Has My Lawnmower, of course! I've been playing around with SIGIL, the Epub editor of the gods (or at least the really BORING gods who like spreadsheets and XHTML), and while I haven't mastered it yet, the file I've just produced is pretty damned satisfactory if I say so m'self. There's even a table of contents!

Get The Mad Scientist FOR FREE!

You know that post earlier about how people want art but that they hate paying artists?

I was talking about me, of course!

Case in point: The Mad Scientist, a short story that's being distributed by a for real publisher (Books To Go Now) is being given away FOR FREE! You can go and get your DRM-riddled copy RIGHT NOW! And I won't even judge you for it very much.

Okay, it won't be YOURS, because it's Amazon, and you're not buying a BOOK, just a license to read it. You can always use a DRM stripper and Calibre in conjuction to MAKE it yours, though! Go ahead! It's OK!

Also I'm a movie star.

It's difficult for people lacking humility such as myself to admit that they, like all humans, have limitations. One cannot be an expert in everything for the same reason one cannot live in twelve countries at once. You've got to pick your battles, and your areas of accomplishment accordingly.
