kurt's nightmare

Generally, I post once a week. Topics are randomly selected and depend mostly upon whether it's baseball season or not. Other topics will include sex, politics, old girlfriends, music, and whatever else pops into my little brain. If you'd like to read, or ignore, my blog about China: http://meidabizi.blogspot.com/

My novel

As some of you know, I wrote a novel when I was in China. It's sort of about a guy who is pretty good at things—languages, computers, music—and really, really bad at finding a girlfriend.

It's easy to read, my guess is that some of you might find it amusing, and I had more fun writing it than I thought I would. There's some music, some sex, some art, some intrigue, some practical jokes, and a few other things thrown in for good measure. It is, by the way, fiction.

I didn't have much luck placing it with a publisher, however.

But a new service —SCRIBD—has come on-line, where people can offer their books for sale (usually quite cheap). If it gets a little "buzz," it might sell some copies; the authors receive 80% of the proceeds. Mine only costs $2.50, which seems at least righteous to me.

So I put my novel ("Everybody Wins") on SCRIBD. An old roommate bought it. I'd be interested in what others think about it, and even more interested in their buying it. (You know, building up that snowball effect that lands me on Oprah.)

If you're interested, here's the link:

A new post! Now I feel obligated to keep up...
I don't know if there's an agreement you had to sign when you put it on ScribD, but you could put it up on lulu.com too. Maybe you could knock off their top seller: some religious/time-travel story. (I'd buy ten copies if that's what it took to push it over that one).
If you ever have short stories, parables, flash fiction or anything else you'd like to just put somewhere for free, there's probably a place for free-fiction...
I reckon I can afford the price. 300 some pages, eh? The subtitle makes me think there's more in store?

Well, this was a shot at getting it out there. We'll see how it goes.

The hope was, naturally, to write a series, all of which got made into movies and made be wealthy beyond my imagination.

It hasn't quite worked out that way. But the novel is pretty easy and fun to read, I think.

Dude, I think I explained this in a note to you.
