Polite Request From The Management (And A Free Gift)
Hello Internet! Thanks for buying those books. . .
I'm getting nice checks every month now; not "fuck-you" money, by any stretch of the imagination, but definitely, "fuck yeah!" money.
One thing though -- I've gotten very few reviews or comments about them, so I don't know what people think about them. If you enjoyed them or hated them, drop a review on Amazon, let me know what I'm doing right or wrong.
I mean, come on. Don't make me hire a Chinese guy to do it.
I'm working on the memoir about my 9 years in Russia, which will definitely be off-the-hook aweseome degenerate; it will be the ULYSSES of memoirs about drunk English teachers and teenage Russian sluts.
I also want to get into graphic novels, or at least books full of cartoons -- but there are a lot of formatting problems to deal with, and I'm hardly an expert at all this shit.
Could I ask the help of the audience here?
I've uploaded a short book of cartoons -- my much-beloved (by me, anyway) DOOFUS AND VALIANT series -- on Smashwords.
It's 100 percent free.
(Although if you were so inclined, you could get it on Amazon Kindle for $0.99 -- http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007CV9UZG)
Now, so far it looks okay to me as a downloaded file -but might I ask of the audience, if you have a Kindle Fire or Ipad, could you try to download this and see if it's legible and the images aren't broken up or anything?
I think it won't work on the old-style Kindle, but it should work on Ipad if you download it onto Stanza or whatever.
Then leave a comment here, let me know if it looks okay; after some feedback I'll do more.
As I said: free free free. A little Russian Day of Men and Patriots gift for you.
(EDIT, FEB 24: Uploaded again; if your epub version showed lines, try it again now.)
