Hi there! It seems like years ago, but it was only last January that I decided to take the indie film seminar that led to the realization that I could be a film producer, which eventually led to a series of epiphanies (too many to count) that led to the conclusion that I’m a happy fool. And I believe that happy fools can succeed, if they work hard, work smart and aren’t distracted by pretty lies, i.e, mere appearances, greed, drugs, hate, evil, etc. #iamfoolish
Which is why I’m making a point of blogging about how I managed to figure out Final Draft and finish my screenplay, and submit to the Scriptapalooza screenwriting contest described here, along with some other links of interest. I submitted early because our power was scheduled to be turned off today, and I wanted to make sure and beat the deadline.
And I’m the biggest techno-idiot ever. And I’m a sort of a gimp. Ha ha ha …
So, I got the last laugh on both technology and the cosmos.
Plus, I’m also a blogger, who markets books and makes friends through the Interwebs.
So … this serves as another reminder that I’m offering my latest novel RIPTIDE from Smashwords (just click the link in the title to go to the order page) for absolutely FREE.
And there’s the awesome cover.
You can get the book for nothing at all in any format at all, including .mobi for Kindle, .epub for Nook, Apple, etc., PDF, etc.
All you have to do is use this coupon code ZX76D when you check out.
And all you have to do to transfer the file to your device is follow these really easy instructions.
However, this promo runs until Sat., April 21. So act fast, because I’m only giving away so many ebooks, okay?
In fact, you can get ALL my books on Smashwords, as you can see.
Or you can buy any of them from Barnes & Noble, if you prefer.
I’d also like to thank the good people of World O’ Crap again, because they have a friend in real need. (Please click on the link for the details, to find out ways to help.) A woman with health problems who is being evicted, along with her cat. And you know how I feel about cats. And bad health and misfortune. Sam McRae would … well, Sam gets hot under the collar. :-/
Have I mentioned that Scott Clevenger (who’s also a screenwriter! whoa!) at World O’Crap co-wrote a book called BETTER LIVING THROUGH BAD MOVIES? Isn’t that the most awesome title ever? I must read this book. Soon.
And there’s the really cool cover. Awesome!
Plus, I’ve been lucky enough to find an aspiring screenwriter named Steve, who has a blog called My Other Career. I’ve subscribed and it looks really cool. He’s offered his expertise on future problems with Final Draft. Isn’t that awesome? Blogging totally rocks.
PPS: RIP Dick Clark. A music lover and stroke survivor, who kept going and didn’t take himself too seriously.
