Paperback Writer


After few more delays than I had expected, I'm happy to announce that it's finally here: Dead Star Twilight is now available in paperback.

For those of you who were waiting to buy a physical copy of my memoir rather than opting for the pay-what-you-want digital edition for Kindle, iPad and so on, you can purchase it from Amazon beginning today. Unlike the e-book, there's a fixed price of $14.95 for the paperback; I tried my best to push for it to be as inexpensive as possible but, unfortunately, that kind of thing is out of my hands. Still, I'm more that satisfied with the finished product; it looks terrific and I have to admit that it's a pretty big thrill to actually hold in my hands the book into which I put so much blood and sweat. Up until now I've only seen it as an image on a computer screen, so I guess it's a little like finally being able to wrap your arms around your baby.

If I could ask everyone for a minor favor: Even if you're not picking up a copy of Dead Star Twilight, if you've read it and enjoyed it, please either take the time to write a quick review on the Amazon page or at least click the page's Facebook "like" button to help spread the word. I actually am going to put some effort into making sure promo copies of this thing get sent around so we'll see where that takes us.

To those who've already read the book, thanks so much. And to those who plan to buy it now that it's available in paperback, thank you as well.

What an incredible book! Reading this book in one sitting left me feeling much the same way as I felt when I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas in one sitting - overwhelmed by the subject matter, and amazed by the writer’s ability.

As I’ve said so many times after reading the DExM entries: God Damn it, that man can write! Shame about the haircut, though.

Yes it is.

Liked and purchased! I'm so excited to get the book. Thanks Chez!

You're not a real author 'til the Fundies have something of yours to burn...and now they do.

Congrats.

I don't have a facebook or Amazon account, so I can't help you there, but I did just fill out a "Request to Obtain" form at my local library. Hope that helps.

Just published a review of your amazing work after reading the downloaded version. Also pimping it on my twitter feed and to my friends. Going to buy a hard copy Thursday when I get paid.

Great work.

congratufuckinglations, chez! i know its been a long time coming, and a long road to travel to live through and then get to the point where you can turn it into art, but i hope you can forgive my rambling run on sentences, and know that we all love and appreciate every thought you have ever shared with us.

Why not offer autographed copies on your website? First edition (printed), personalized....
