I’m excited about Monday’s online book launch party
I’m excited. Virtually excited and excited for real. Published in Speculative Realms, Where There’s A Will, There’s A Way is “KanjiKiss,” a story I wrote about a country boy who moves to futuristic Seattle and gives up his flesh life to live with a woman in virtual space. I wonder if he’ll have to mow the lawn or take out the garbage during his virtual life? I don’t know. That’s another story.
It’s fitting that this is a virtual book party. You get to try and trap me online and ask the tough questions like, why I wrote the story, or what was I smoking. And maybe you’ll decide I’m cool enough to have written a story you’ll want to read and you’ll buy the book. (See it over there on the right-hand side of the webpage? Hint! Hint!)
Even if you don’t buy the book, maybe you’ll have fun socializing with the other authors, and maybe you’ll find them cool enough to read a story by them (they are pretty cool, BTW) and decide to by the book. (It’s the one with the purple cover, still over on the right-hand side of the wedpage.)
Oh, and even if you don’t have enough scratch to buy a book, by showing up, you are automatically in a drawing to win a free one!
Now back to that guy in KanjiKiss who fell in love with a Japanese woman whose Dad drug her to Korea (she doesn’t like it there much, that’s why she’s meeting men on the Internet). Do you think he’ll have to take out the garbage? I mean he gave up everything he had to be with her. What more does a guy have to do to prove his love? Comment ladies?
