Reading Is Fund-amental: Day 1
I know things have really been moving along at a regular pace here for only the past week-and-a-half or so, but since I do these things quarterly I just can't wait anymore: It's time for our big Winter Pledge Drive, where I spend a few days -- in this case a short week, which seems fair -- dropping my hat onto the digital sidewalk and doing a little dance that I hope will annoy you enough to want to give me a few bucks to make me leave you alone.
You know how this works: If you like what you find here at DXM and, more recently, on The Bubble Genius Bob & Chez Show podcast and radio show -- if you find my scathing bitterness, infrequent insight, even less frequent comic stylings, public feuds and musical picks entertaining -- and hey, this time around you got pretty pictures of my cross-country trip -- then by all means feel free to throw some money toward keeping these proceedings humming along.
There are now three ways you can put your hard-earned cash toward the DXM empire and its humble proprietor. The first is the easiest: Just click the Paypal electronic tip link in the right-hand sidebar of this screen and donate away. You can also use the Paypal tip jar to pay-what-you-want for a digital copy of my book, Dead Star Twilight, for iPad or Kindle. Go here to begin your instant download. Remember, it's a full length book -- 300-some-odd pages that you'll be blazing through -- and it can be yours for whatever you feel like putting toward it. The last way you can give is by buying a physical copy of Dead Star Twilight from Amazon. The full price is $14.95 but I promise you it's worth every penny.* To purchase the paperback, just click here. (By the way, buying the book gives the least amount of money to the site since I only get a small cut; obviously I want to sell books but I know there are some people out there who would want to be made aware of that.)
As always I want to thank everyone who continues to read this little experiment of mine. We're coming up on six years since this bizarre journey began and God only knows where it'll eventually end up. (My money's on it all being the detailed fantasy of an autistic kids.) Bottom line, though: This site wouldn't exist without you guys, so you have my ongoing humble appreciation.
More updates throughout the week.
*I can't, in fact, promise this.
