Author’s Request for the Electronic Edition
Scintillating prose, like bread alone, is sometimes not enough for a writer, much less a publisher, to live on. The grim reality is, we all need a little cash from time to time to keep body and soul together. Even with day jobs. Although I would love to be able to write purely for the accolades and sense of satisfaction that comes from putting ‘the end’ on a simply mahvelous piece of fiction, ultimately, printers need feeding too. Laurels are nice, but rough on the palate and generally too much fiber for me. Therefore, it becomes necessary for me to entreat you to honor my beloved publisher’s request that you pay—cash money—for this book. Honestly, you’ll get your money’s worth. Incredible but true, you may actually find that it scratches the itch that more mainstream manuscripts cannot. Simple fact: our books have more fingers than other books. Because of this, and a plethora of other benefits as well, we simply urge you: be honest, be fair, and God, please be affluent enough to cross our palms with silver. Ours is not a simple life. Ordinary, neither. Knowledge, good karma and possibly a spare set of kidneys could be yours, but only if you buy this book first.
