and once again: THANK YOU

I had to send two back-to-back shipments of my book, Scary Spasms in Hairy Chasms, to the Amazon warehouse. It's both puzzling and amazing to realize people are out there purchasing this thing, but if South Park has proved anything, it's that scatological humor sells.

So thank you.

A reminder that it's quite OK to buy the book directly from me-- I don't bite. Visit my other blog, Only the Chewiest Tumors, and hit a PayPal button to buy my book. If you buy several, you get a discount. It goes like this:

1 copy for $15 (+ shipping)
2 copies for $25 (+ shipping)
5 copies for $55 (+ shipping)
10 copies for $100 (+ shipping)

Full disclosure: while I like the fact that Amazon's a great place to market and hawk one's wares, Amazon charges a $30 annual fee for the privilege of advertising there, and it takes a full 55% of my book's cover price. I also pay my own shipping to the Amazon warehouse, so as you can imagine, I don't see much more than a dollar or two in profit, when all is said and done. Buy directly from me, and I'm a happier camper.

Visit this post at Chewiest Tumors to buy my book. I use PayPal, which is perfectly safe. If you're not signed up with PayPal, signup is a breeze.

COMING THIS WEEK: My store, Caverns of the Big Hominid. It's got a URL; I'm in the process of setting things up. More on this as it happens, but the products I'll be starting off with are mugs (large and small), tee shirts, tile coasters, sweatshirts, and greeting cards (which I may also be selling on my own).

Christmas is just around the corner, and I know you have friends who love gross humor. Scary Spasms in Hairy Chasms is the perfect book to take into the crapper with you. Buy two books; buy five. If you have a whole office full of disgusting co-workers, buy ten! Buy through me, and get that discount. Jesus will love you and start turning water into wine like a madman. The Buddha will tongue your toes. Thousands of tiny angels will hump each other with glee. Cows will fart pixie dust. Children will pick their noses and pull out silver boogers. You'll extrude your very own anus-tongue, and what could be better than that?
