To celebrate the release of Point B yesterday, I did a live reading from the book on YewChube. I’m not lying when I say it was one of the best nights I’ve ever had, in quarantine or out. To cap it off, I discovered once the livestream ended that the paperback edition of Point B had finally gone on sale over at Amazon. I also realized that the entire front cover of that edition was off center. I will fix this, but if you get a copy with a gimpy front cover, my mom says it’ll become a collector’s item. YOU’LL BE RICH.
If you missed the show last night, go ahead and watch the clip of it up above to catch up. Not only will you be treated to a dramatic reading of a sinister high school assembly, but I also answered your question about how self-publishing works (I’m not sure), about Deadspin (I miss its original incarnation dearly), and about the Chopped shirt. Of course the Chopped shirt was involved. I love you all.

I bought the book. If I don’t get the off-center cover, I will hunt you down like a feral pig, gut you, fillet you, flash-fry you and hang the result outside your home, just as an example to the others.

Don’t forget to cut that ear thing out first so you don’t choke on it.

Heads on pikes to serve as a warning to others is always a trend setter.

Hopefully it goes better than the last time Drew got into a fight with himself.

This reminded me that I somehow do not own a copy of The Hike, it’s been sitting in my cart for…however long it’s been out. I suppose I’ll be catching up on my Magary novels in a couple of *checks Amazon order status* WEEKS?!? ARE YOU SHITTING ME? That’s it, we all need to go back to work, I’m with the morons in charge now.
…or I could just read one of the hundreds of unread books on my shelves that I never get to but always say I need to read. You know, with all that free time I have as a father of twins under the age of two.

Drew – one Amazon tip from a failed self-published author: link the Kindle and paperbook editions. Search “KDP linking your ebook and paperback” for more info. Otherwise you will have two separate review counts (which I suppose is not a bad thing for the Kindle edition when some idiot writes a one-star paperback review due to an off-center cover).
