“I tell them, ‘You never had the chance to make 7,000 women happy in one day.'”

It’s weird how the 1,364th story about Amazon sucks mentions my favorite book, Everyone Poops & a lady getting screwed by Amazon when she tried to buy books for my old school district, which I feel was a terrible place; in fact my principle retired & was arrested for soliciting sex in a public park where he told the cop he’d been with all sorts of young bods. Coincidence? I think not.

I was thinking the other day how the cycle of literature : how we burn oil for the light of life lived long ago :: paper pressed down as hard as possible : a blood diamond shines light like everyone deserves to know the truth but at what cost to whom. I don’t know. What do you think. When will small literary presses give Amazon the proverbial bird call? Would anyone care or would it be like when a kid throws a rock in a pond & people just glance & think, “Cute.” But imagine if there were like a thousand kids throwing rocks in a pond. I feel like people would notice that. Have we talked about this 782 times or 783? But if you whore it out someone will write about it maybe? Again? Worth a shot. Just like cage-free eggs. THIS BOOK SOLD WITHOUT AMAZON. Give some good Ra Ra’s & record yourself on VHS kicking an elephant in the junk. So why haven’t you? What are we going to do. Does anyone even care about the weather anymore or was that just something to talk about because the clouds looked like a chorus for a second.

      Amazon took down the “review” which pointed out that we would lose $0.92 for every copy of A Howling in the Wires we sold. I just added it back to the product description but I have a feeling that will not make it through screening, so I wrote another review telling people to please buy direct from our website.

      naive question but couldn’t you just charge more for it on amazon so you’d profit either way?

      i have heard this multiple times including from our own adam robinson, that indie presses actually lose money on amazon sales. that is the most insane thing i think & i have not really heard a good justification for continuing to work with vampires

      it’s like if i took a brick & said i’m going to hit you in the face with this brick a little every time i sell this cheese you made & you said, okay that sounds okay because after all everyone knows you sell all the cheese for cheap & otherwise i will just have all this cheese & i guess what are you going to do he has a brick after all
