Hi there! Remember that? That’s one of the awesome things I’ve pinned on Pinterest. Ha ha ha …
Now … since I have five freaking blogs, and I explained about the last minute contribution here, I’m including that link on this blog. You’ll have to click there, read it and
weep laugh or whatever!
I’m keeping this really short since I can barely type this post, okay?
I realized that I need to get my online shit together REALLY soon! I have control, and I make the decisions.
Time to reinvent myself.
However, I am seeking contributions for my literacy campaign on Indiegogo!
You can get copies of my novels if you make a tax-deductible contribution to my campaign! Awesome, yes? Please act swiftly. The deadline for meeting my $1,000 goal is Dec. 21. Any support in terms on RTs, FB or Google+ shares would be greatly appreciated.
BTW, I did manage to write a shitty first draft of the special acknowledgment section of the new edition of IDENTITY CRISIS. Here it is:
No one gets anywhere in life without help from others. I’ve always felt lucky to have such a wonderful husband, family and friends. However, I’m starting to think maybe we choose wisely and that makes all the difference.
When I decided to self-publish this book, I never intended to make a living as a self-published author. However, things have changed and now I think it’s possible to do so. However, if you’re going to do it, you need to establish yourself as an author, in order to create a meaningful readership.
I’d like to thank the following people for providing early financial support for this edition of the book: Mac Cassity, Edward Adams, Debra Hoover-McDonald, Nancy Mack for herself and on behalf of Joyce Mack, Rick Iacangelo on behalf of Mary Louise Iacangelo, Karen McQuestion.
Now, this is just a shitty first draft, but you get the idea, right?
I’ll double-check to make sure all the names are named, of course.
Well … there is one unacknowledged name that bears mention. Jack Bludis always asks about him. Oh … what’s his name?
Bob Broomall! Right! Thank you, Bob. If you hadn’t told me that first novel (my “practice novel”) about Sam was “publishable”, I might never have believed any of this was possible.
As my funny sister would say, I think it’s a “highly punishable” story, and I’m in the process of punishing the shit out of it. Ha ha ha …
And now a few links of interest:
Welcome to my reality! I have a post-stroke movement disorder that has no cure. Don’t bitch to me about your little teeny problems. We all have problems, and the Dalai Lama can’t save the world. Sorry!
Kids are getting thinner. Awesome!
Oh, no! Not more
cosmic jokes wars! :-O
Really, Guy Kawasaki? What kind of entrepreneur are you? Ha ha ha …
Here’s the Facebook Page for Cities in the Sky: Science-Fiction’s Forgotten Visionaries. I like it!
Dale Phillips’ new book release and big book giveaway! Really awesome!
And from Nik Nak’s Old Peculiar, this awesome quote:
“If I have a thousand ideas and only one turns out to be good, I am satisfied.”
Alfred Nobel, 21 October 1833 – 10 December 1896
My problem was I had a head full of ideas that were driving me insane.
So … get ready for a surprise!
And finally thank you to everyone reading this. To
quote paraphrase myself:
I just want to thank everyone who’s reading this. All my subscribers and frequent readers, because you’re so awesome for putting up with all my
bullsh*t ridiculous posts. Even you casual readers who’ve stopped by, simply because the headline caught your eye or whatever. I’m grateful for the patronage of any other Internet hobos like myself. #gratitude
This has been a really
lousy busy weird unusual week year full of epiphanies for me. So, I’d like to end the week this post with what I hope will be a really awesome gesture.
So … here’s a video I
was lucky enough to get found on Twitter …
… and here’s another one.
I think they’re both awesome. I hope you enjoy them.
And, so … the Dude abides.
UPDATE: Imelda May is awesome!
UPDATE 2: Here’s to starting over!
