Want A Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead Postcard?

I had some postcards printed up to promote Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead.  If you want one, then please email me at wredfright AT yahoo DOTT com.  I'll probably send you a bunch if you send me a self-addressed stamped envelope.  You are welcome to distribute them at the cool places in your neighborhood such as coffee shops.  Thanks for the help in spreading the word!

Looking for something unique to get your lover for Valentine's Day, or maybe you don't have a lover and that's bumming you out and you want to cheer up?:  How about a copy of Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead?  It's a weird love story, but it's still a love story.  It will last longer than flowers, it won't put weight on you like chocolate will, and it will make me love you also!

Autographed Print Copies Of Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead Are Now Available!

Autographed print copies of Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead are now available!  They are $20, and that includes postage.  Just select that option from the order menu instead of EPUB or PDF.  I can also personalize the autograph; please just send me an email with the specifics if your PayPal order doesn't have an option to include a note.  Of course, include your shipping address if PayPal doesn't do that automatically for you.  I'll probably still email you to clarify the details.  The print book looks pretty nice; Amazon's print on demand unit has done an excellent job!

Updated Bear And Snake Strip For The Trump Era!







I bet I could run this same comic every presidential administration.  I just need to update the name of the current disappointing officeholder.  I also should probably add Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead or whatever new novel I have out then.

The Print Edition Of Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead

I wasn't planning on putting out a print edition of Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead, but I am sure glad that I did!  When I uploaded the Kindle edition to Amazon, I saw they had an option to work up a print counterpart.  I decided to try it as an experiment.  I knew that some of my readers still prefer print, so I wanted to have it as an option even if it wouldn't be as cheap as the ebook due to printing costs.  There were a couple of minor hurdles, but I got it uploaded.  I was a little concerned about how the printed book would look since the book wasn't designed with print in mind, but Amazon's print on demand service did a great job!  I just got my print copy today, and the book looks great!  I had thought about doing a print run, but what can be done with print on demand is amazing these days.  The books are quite akin to any trade paperback, and it's nice to know that there won't be any remainder copies floating around unloved in bookstores.  It's probably a little more environmentally sound to only get these books printed up when someone actually wants one.  You can check out the print edition here.

New Book About The Afterlife!

Michael Shermer has come out with a new book that seems interesting.  It's called Heavens On Earth:  The Scientific Search For The Afterlife, Immortality, And Utopia.  I plan on reading it.  It seems like a nice, nonfictional counterpart to Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead.  I wonder what Shermer would think of that fictional afterlife.  I hope he would get a laugh out of it!

Bruce Goose, Where Are You?

One of my favorite minor characters in Blog Love Omega Glee is the cranky old man, Bruce Goose, who likes to tell Jake such sage advice as "Never marry a poet."  Goose, of course, tries his hand at some poetry of his own and tries to get published in Francine's blog.  Well, although Goose is a fictional character, I was delighted to discover that there apparently is a real poet who went by the name of Bruce Goose.   There is no connection between the two; I just liked the name for the character, and if I had known that a poet went by that name, I would have chosen another name for the character, which would have been sad because I really like that name.

In any case, the nonfictional Bruce Goose, someone is looking for you.  It is Tom Prince.  I will let Tom send out the APB for Bruce in his own words from the email he sent me:  "He is (was) the son of Kenneth Fearing. If he lives (surprisingly), are you able to contact him? I am doing a documentary about Read Sky Poetry Theatre and Bruce would be interested to know that. If he can't recall me, mention the Five 0 Tavern and the Cause Celebre Cafe."

So Bruce if you're out there, please get in touch with me, and I'll put you in touch with Tom if you can't reach him directly.
