Nobots Chapter Four

User Journal 4

Chapter 4 is online.

Betty dropped by Saturday night for a visit. I'd asked her before I published if she'd proofread it, as she found the two deliberate typos in The Paxil Diaries (which I should publish in book form). She'd been in the middle of two other books and didn't want to take on a third.

"Already published," I said, handing my copy to her. "And sold a few." She opened to the first page and started reading -- and grinning, a good sign.

"What's 'Ezekial'?" she asked.

"A book in the bible."

"There's no book of Ezekial!"

"Yes there is," I said, getting my bible. I showed her.

"How 'bout that?" She said. "I love what I read so far. Most books it takes a chapter or two before I get sucked in, three paragraphs and I have to finish this!"

Wait until she gets to "Stratodoober Madness".

She went home with my copy, signed with the inscription "To my friend with benefits."

Not only are people buying it, it got me laid! I imagine that she's fantasized about writers before...

Got my copy (1)

My copy arrived a couple of days ago. Nice quality book. This is the first time I've ordered from LuLu and it is a nice product.

I hope the quality of the writing is up to par! :)

Thanks for getting a copy.

When I scrape the change from within the couch... (1)

I expect to buy a copy. My time and my money go into getting my daughter off to a good start in life (more time than money, but both are needed). I would, however, put myself slightly into hock for a copy of The Paxil Diaries. Get it printed!

I intend to, something tells me I'll sell more of TPD than Nobots.
