I''m going to put this book in Kindle Unlimited, which means I can't sell it at Smashwords and can't give you a discount coupon. Sorry about that, but it's a long book; and under the KU system, long books do much better when they're exclusive to Amazon. Fortunately for those of you who don't have Kindles, there are lots of freeware programs available that will will translate from .mobi to .epub; and none of my stuff is DRM protected.
Now for the YouTube half of this post. I've said before that I've started a YouTube channel, and it's continuing to grow. I'm actually amazed at how many people have subscribed. Right now most of the content is in my (ever-growing) playlist, but I plan to upload some stuff of my own in the near future. The problem is that I had a bunch of great videos stored on my last computer (including the full Big Trouble in Little China and the full 70's version of King Kong), but that computer died. I'd been faithfully backing up most of my data, so I didn't lose too much, but I had not been backing up my videos because they were so damn big. Now they're gone forever, and YouTube took down the originals, so I can't easily get that content back. I'll have to find fresh copies. Any help would be appreciated - but please don't suggest a torrent site unless you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it's malware free. I'm very nervous about torrenting.
Anyway, I will be adding one new original video to my channel next week. I'm going to experiment with a book commercial, so I'll be recording myself (trying to sound sexy but not sexy enough to attract stalkers, and disguising my voice a bit) describing the new book and reading an excerpt. I'm curious to see whether it will help my sales. If it does, I'll keep it up. I can think of some other things to record as well, but I don't plan to get into the podcast business because I have too many other things going on.
Well, wish me luck; and again, if you know where I can get clean copies of Big Trouble, King Kong, Looker, or any other of the MC greats, please let me know.
