Well y'all, I have been on the computer ALL DAY!!!  It takes a lot of time to spread the good word. I have been trying like hell to make contacts and do some promotion of this book. And with my computer acting up, it makes for slow progress. Take, for instance, Facebook; If I go to FB using Internet Explorer, I can't scroll, it takes forever. So then, when I switch to Firefox, it scrolls nicely, but I can't post comments...that's when DROID comes to the rescue. Remember the days before 4G cell phones? How did the world accomplish anything?!  I had to recommend my FB page to all my friends one at a time, which made my entire wall feed turn olive drab. So if any of my FB Peeps reads this, SORRY, I couldn't avoid the mass posting. They should really completely redesign Facebook, it's fickle...
  This thread, however, isn't a rant about Facebook. I am surprised in the general lack of interest so far on Facebook. The book is picking up numbers, but it seems slowly; we'll see... My fiance is trying to help do PR work for the book, and one of her FB friends commented: "Hey, did you not post this twenty times yesterday?"  And so I replied, "Good, then post 20 more times, because in today's tough world, we must take advantage of any free advertising and help we can get". They don't realize that this is my only income, and I may not be able to afford any traditional advertising. We live in a digital age, and should utilize any resource available. If my continuous posting regarding my new book gets on your nerves, then simply click the little *Hide* button to the right of the post, and POOF; disappeared...
  Screw Facebook, let's talk about the book... Field Combat Manual For Zombie Slayers is the first book I have published, but certainly not the last. It was a test for me, to see if I could actually write a sellable book. Turns out I can. I have a few other books in the works; it seems once you uncork the writing genie, you can't put him back in.
  During writing of this book, I deliberately didn't look for similar books on the internet because I didn't want to be swayed, or lose momentum from seeing other people's work. I didn't know how many 'Zombie Guides' were out there, but I figured there may be a few. After completing, and turning in to the publisher, I went and checked out the 'competition', so to speak. There are a few Zombie Manuals, but not as many as I thought there would be. A couple of them resemble mine a bit, but I don't think the content is near the same. It seems like we all have similar objectives, but luckily, different approaches.
  Ok, apparently I am going to have to blog later, thanks to the fucking world not noticing I have a privacy fence.  My advice; avoid neighbors at all costs, they know nothing of privacy...
