This post is part self whoring, general whoring, and Christmas present. I don't know what the ratios are either, so good luck. But first an apology. It turns out I'm retarded. Ish. I did some more writing in my book yesterday, mostly a little bit of rewriting here and there. It turns out I didn't write ten thousand words. I had written ten thousand characters (letters and what not). My book is on it's fourth chapter and currently contains nearly eight thousand words. I am less impressive than previously thought. I even did a typing test and discovered that if I typed non-stop, it would take me an estimated 3 hours to write 10k words. Obviously while writing a book, one cannot really do that.
Now, on with the show. The fabulous boys at A Beer For The Shower, Bryan and Brandon, have taken a big step on the road to be published authors...by becoming published authors. They may have actually reached the end of this road. They've now taken their first step on the long hard road of becoming SUCCESSFUL published authors.
This is where I come in. I don't have much influence, sure, but I have some. If someone else hasn't already gotten to you by now, then I am going to provide you with a link to the book on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/The-Missing-Link-ebook/dp/B006NUAQNC/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1324303226&sr=1-1). I found it on Amazon.co.uk by searching for "The Missing Link Bryan" so it showed up. There are a lot of books called, or related to, "The missing link". Theirs is sadly low on the list. Though maybe with my review it will go up a little. I doubt it but you never know. A five star review can do wonders. At least it deserved it and I'm not affiliated with the product or it's competitors.
The book is insanely cheap at less than two dollars (and even less in GBP which is what I paid with), and it's easily worth it. Plus everyone loves helping out a little guy. I mean, come on, I'm a cheap, poor, bastard, and even I bought it. I don't regret it either. I have some problems with Kindle (at least Kindle for PC, I'm yet to have a Kindle) but the book itself is worth it. It's well written, it's funny, and best of all, it has homeless people! Angry, drunk, crazy homeless people. What more could you want? Seriously no one needs more than that.
As for why this is a Christmas present like I mentioned at the start, well I'm classing this as my Christmas present to the boys at A Beer For The Shower, plus I think it would make a nice Christmas present. That is, if you CAN gift something on a Kindle. Or should I say to a Kindle? Anyway, it's a good book, it's cheap, and it's worth more than they've asked for.
Check out their blog at least if you can't buy the book!
PS If I release an Ebook onto Kindle like this (if I work out how as well as get enough of a book down) then I will be back again, doing more self whoring than ever before. Look forward to it.
