My Newest Book Deal

leave a comment »

I am thrilled to report that I have just finished negotiations with the local Blockbuster on a brand new book deal.   This will be my second book jacket and I am thrilled.   Unlike my first book jacket  Lockdown: The Liberal Agenda to Bankrupt the Self-Storage Industry and Turn America into a Third Word Country, this jacket is a work of pure fiction.  However, I am very convinced that the horrible events in this story are indeed quite possible.   This book jacket will be available in both hard cover and a new paper back size as well.  If you are only going to buy one book this year and only one book jacket for that book then by all means make it this one.   This book jacket also introduces the character of Jack Beck who is too self-storage owner-operators what Indiana Jones was to archaeologists.   I promise you, after this jacket you will never look at corrugated cardboard the same again.

dustjacket1Morning Edition – Author Photos

It is very unusual that I listen to New Pravda Radio (NPR), but today I had Morning Edition on and  they were talking about the importance of author photographs in selling books.   It made me think that I might be selling myself short on the whole dust jacket thing.   If I could get a ghost writer then with their words and my image I think we could have a huge hit on our hands.   Industry insiders are telling people that if they have an attractive looking author, they are more likely to get their book reviewed.  This seems to be a good time to mention that Lockdown: The Liberal Agenda to Bankrupt the Self-Storage Industry and Turn America into a Third World Country is still only $7.99.  It defintely sounds like the market for quality dust jackets may be dramatically increasing so this is definitely a good time to snap one of these babies up to cover up books by less attractive authors.   I think I’d look great over a copy of Studs Terkel’s Working for example.

We Have a Book Deal!!

Words cannot describe how thrilled I am to have completed Lockdown: The Liberal Agenda to Bankrupt the Self-Storage Industry and Turn America into a Third Word Country.  For awhile now I have been looking for a way in which to take my voice beyond this blog and I think I have finally found it.

As regular readers know, I am no fan of books, but it just seems the natural progression from blog writer.  However, I don’t have time to read books let alone write them.  That’s why when the manager of the local Kinkos came to me with this publishing deal I couldn’t pass it up.  Instead of writing a large book which neither you nor I have time for, I’m simply producing the dust jacket. Take any old book on your shelf that you know you’re never going to get around to reading and slip my dust jacket over it.  This will give you a chance to impress your friends and show them that you’re well-informed without having the pressure to actually read one of these books.  I have to confess even the Limbaugh and O’Reilly books people give me just wind up sitting on my bookshelf unopenned.

Instead of the $80 or whatever new books cost, I’m selling my Lockdown dust jackets for just $7.99.  They don’t cost me nearly as much to produce, but they’re printed on high quality paper and fully laminated.  If this dust jacket is successful I will be producing future dust jackets on other topics important to conservatives.  I’m not taking orders yet, but please let me know what you think.  I really think they turned out sharp.

Major Book Deal Announcement This Afternoon

leave a comment »

I don’t have time to give all the details and I need to finalize a few things, but there will be a major announcement on this blog this afternoon about a new major book deal for my new project tentatively entitled “The Liberal Agenda to Make America a Third Word Country and How We Can Stop It”.  I’m looking forward to spilling the beans later today.
