Installment 3 of Fill the Grand Canyon and Live Forever

... is now live!

So far, we are at 192 page views and have stalled at 10 followers who are all great.

Probably Monday or Tuesday, I will have a surprise novel appearing in digital form for the Kindle (on Amazon) and on Smashwords. It's called Fuckness and it's 70-some thousand words long. It will be priced at an ultra-affordable .99 cents. Whether or not it appears in paperback will pretty much be determined by the interest it generates (or doesn't). This is an experiment in method. Also, it's a book I like quite a bit. It was my first really "serious" attempt at writing a book and liking it enough to try selling it to agents and editors. I wrote it at the end of the 20th century when I was in my early twenties. It's been rejected by nearly everyone and seriously considered by a lot of agents and editors. The final critique amounts to it being too weird for mainstream folks and too normal for bizarro folks. I have read it and edited it so many times, I have to publish it so I stop doing obsessing over it. So let me know what you think. I'm really starved for attention.

One problem with Fuckness... There's only two pages at the moment, so I think your upload to smashwords didn't work (yeah- I grabbed it first thing).

And it seemed to be the synopsis. Jeez, I'm an idiot. Okay, hopefully, the correct version is uploading now. I'm not sure how Smashwords works. Will you be able to download the new version without paying for it? If not, send me your email and I can get you an epub of it.

Thanks again for letting me know, Scott. The correct version should be live now.

Got the updated version and it's next on my read list.
