Greetings Wafers and Waferettes!
We seem to be filling up our allotted space of 200 comments with unusual speed these days. I blink, and it's time for another post. Let me take this opportunity to give you all an un-progress report regarding various books of mine (I'm guessing some of you could use a cure for insomnia; this will definitely do the trick).
1. Counting Blessings
is back on the Amazon listing, but apparently they won't order from the publisher till the book is actually out of stock, and then they will only accept 2 or 3 copies at a time. Terrific way to handle things, eh? Last time this happened, the book was out of print for several weeks--an author's dream.
2. Spinning Straw Into Gold
is endlessly on the verge of being published. Unfortunately, every time this occurs, there's another printer's error (last one: an entire page in a differently shaded font; take me now, O Lord), and so we have to do another round of proof copies, which takes a couple of weeks. Again, an author's dream. I'm beginning to wonder if the book will appear before Xmas.
3. Distributor for Coming to Our Senses
is trying to get a re-release of the book posted on Amazon. This has been going on for several weeks now, with no end in sight.
4. No luck so far in getting Why America Failed
published in a paperback edition. Replies usually say something along the lines of, "This doesn't fit into our current booklist," etc. Which could be true, although my guess is that it's code for "We can't make any money on this book." Thus proving the thesis of the book; a wonderful irony.
My mother told me to be a plumber, but did I listen? No! Anyway, maybe we'll have another buffoon attack on the blog, to keep things lively. As you know, I love those buffoons. Long may they rave, o'er the land of the free, etc. Buffoons rule!--don't doubt it for a minute. For every one of you, there are at least 100,000 of them.
