If I Don't Read the Ad—I Don't Endorse It
| click 2 enalrge|
Hey! Important Announcement!
I have had emails asking about some product or service advertised on my novels through the itunes and podiobooks feed. Apparently some outfit called zero2novel.com was advertised in Hard Boiled Headline. Folks, if you don't hear my lovely voice reading the ad, I don't know jack shit about it, and I don't endorse it. Let me repeat. If I didn't read it, I don't endorse it! I don't know about, or exercise any control over, what gets put in my feeds. Nor do I make squat from it. In fact, I have zero advertisement revenue. ZERO! From anywhere. Not because I would not like some ad revenue, but because I have not figured out how to get any.
So, if I pimp something, it has been out of a genuine fondness for it. Like thenextbigwriter.com, I endorse them. Screwjack moneygrubbing attempts to extort money from writers I do not endorse. Folks, there are more crooks out there scamming authors than there are authors. Watch yourself.
I only endorse books I enjoy and HAVE READ! or LISTENED TO! I have probably pissed off many podiobook authors as I don't mention them. It's not deliberate, it's because I refuse to pimp something I have not experienced. I pimped Sigler's Infected, Contagious, and now, Nocturnal, because I listened or read them and enjoyed myself. Speaking of Nocturnal, I am on chapter 35, and it kicks ass. That fraggin' Pookie Chang is a hell of a character. And Sigler has a seemingly endless supply of voices. The shit rocks. It's friggin' long, but entertaining, fun, well plotted, and danged well delivered. Also, I am endorsing Fried Green Zombies. it's pretty funny. I did not listen to the audiobook, but I downloaded the PDF and read it. Pretty amusing story. Oh, and New World Orders. That is a good story!
As someone who has written twelve novels, sixty short stories, a bunch a podcasts, and miscellaneous bullshit, I don't have a lot of time. I have to drink too! No rum, no words. But I have numerous podiobooks I WANT to listen to, and I will, and if they are good, I'll be mentioning them. I have over a million words laid down on paper. I'd like to get a million more. But I like my entertainment as well. So I'll be listening.

Crypt Story Live at scottsigler.com
Hey. The Crypt character treatment co-written by me... THE HACK, is live at www.scottsigler.com And ya know, the beggar did my voice better than I do. He took my draft, refined it, added some of his own purely Siglerfied insults, and launched a freakin' entertaining episode. Make sure and click over to scottsigler.com then drop some comment love his way.
OH! And if you like my shit — GET NOCTURNAL! I am almost finished listening and that is five-star work. While yer there, look around. Sigler has a metric-crapload of good stuf!
Latest Clodcast Live... and uh... err...
Okay, The Literary Lugwrench 21 Clodcast is up. You can get it using the podcast menu item. I never announce anything. I never email anyone unless it's a reply to an email. And I ain't going to. I respect your privacy (another way of saying 'I drink too much to keep up with emails') I do post everything new on twitter which theoretically gets posted to facebook. I'm veinarmor on Twitter and greg crites on Facebook (I think. I can't keep up with all this social media crapola. I have to write!*)
Anyway, it's up there. Not much in the clodcast this week. There is the short story 'Tropical Vacation Downgraded To Tropical Depression'. Kat nove sent in a story, but I forgot it on another machine and will have to use it next week. Sorry, Kat! I promise. I am going to work out an outline for the Zombie book this week. I'm concentrating on Dunkin III. I write a paragraph, take a drink, look at sailboats, repeat. Slow progress. But this is what you've come to expect from The Hack. Zero fraggin' fan respect. Heh! I'll make a feeble attempt to remember to post updates here, but ya gotta remember, I'm busy.**
Oh, and Kat has a blog, www.katnovian.com. Stop in and say hi.
* And drink.
