It's nothing that a good shower (and maybe a stiff drink) can't cure.

Kill & Cure is on my laptop (I don't do format conversions). I locked up my Sony one time with a pdf file, so I'll have to read it on the laptop. I did look for someplace to purchase it, but I could not find it available to USA.




Hey Dreams,
Try waterstones.com or amazon.co.uk...or go to my blog www.stephendavison.wordpress.com from where you can download a .PRC. Not sure if that helps!

Fame? Who said anything about fame. I just want to make enough money to be able to buy a tank of gas for my subcompact car. I mean heck, the book took a few thousand hours to write.

You're right: I took another look and that's an Author.

PHOTO BELOW: An Unknown Author promotes his work to an Author of "Respectable Importance."

If someone can identify this Unknown Author (the one with his mouth open), please don't hesitate to step forward.

Okie dokie. Here's the plugging. Courtesy of our own esteemed dreams, a wonderful review for Boomerang.

Review by: dreams on Nov. 20, 2009 :
Great fun from start to finish. The various antics of the characters had me laughing out loud as I visualized the situations. I loved following the old lady sisters, Amelia and Doreen (they were so real that I could almost hear their conversations) and Ted and Jerry (that guy had more stuff he was into than poor Ted could keep up with). If that wasn't enough, add in the alphabet soup of government agencies and “the clothing optional former onion festival queen". I had no idea how it was going to end and couldn't wait to find out. This will definitely be on my to-be-read-again list.


There will be no poop flinging from this quarter. And I'm pretty good at ducking, side stepping and drop and rolling too. So those who are so inclined are free to fling away!

Bye the bye Dr. D. where did you come by that photo of my eighth grade social science teacher?

I know, I know... you put in a lot of time writing, it seems like the least you deserve is to be properly compensated for your time. Only this industry has never been good at that, for anyone except the top, what, 2% of writers. The rest of us barely get lunch money. Fast food lunch money.

Anyway, you can charge whatever you want. But don't forget: Lower prices often generate more sales, which can make more in the long run. And this whole e-book "industry" is too new to have locked in on proper pricing yet. So, be flexible.

Oh, I'm sorry... I'm supposed to be shamelessly shilling, aren't I? Uh... the Denial of Service saga is FREE on SteveJordanBooks.com! And while you're there, check out a book that will actually make me some money!

There. I feel all dirty again.

Thank you, but I'm in the USA so locked out (geographic restrictions). I have a Sony and I need the ePub version. I believe most Readers use ePub except the Kindle. Unfortunately, I'm one of those that don't do conversions yet (someday, I'll have time to learn).

Plumboz, you can definitely get away with asking more for Boomerang. It has like a million shining reviews on Smashwords. It's the books that cost a lot yet have no reviews that spook me.

Now that's my kind of shameless promotion, the kind that is done for you!

Thanks and thanks again, banjobama, for those kind words. Although I think the reviews number a bit closer to half a dozen or so, they are all very nice.

Love to join you on Goodreads. I am there under my real, fer sure name. Just to throw people off.

Love your new avatar, by the way. Two of the funniest men ever to trod this earth.
