If you die after you sign my copy does it go up in value?

Yes .... but I will haunt you and make your life a living hell until your mind goes completely insane.

I figure that will take my ghost 10 ..... 15 minutes tops to make happen.

Holy Spicoli! I wrote a book! I just received the proof copies from the publisher to approve.
Available from Amazon and other fine book selling type places in just days (perhaps hours).
Stay tuned ---> http://www.surfpirates.com/thebook.html

These are the "proof copies" I need to review:


And this will be the final cover design:

No. But I am already scouting quality voice actors for the animated film.

I have the lovely interns here at BN Critters HQ proofreading now.
One final round of edits to update then I'll approve the book.

My guess is Friday. I am leaving Saturday to go to Pensacola for a week
(Margaritaville Hotel) so I'd like to get it published this week.

I am available, and more than just a couple of people have told me that I have a face for radio.  I also work a dambed sight cheaper than would Danny DeVito or Bob Newhart, or even Seth Green.
Not that I'm shamelessly lobbying or anything like that......

Absolutely we can make that happen. I'll have to figure out the logistics when I return from vacation in a couple of weeks.

Oh! And somehow I want YOU to sign MY copy as well. (That goes for all *official strippers* and future *stripper Juana Bees*).
We'll figure it out.

By the way ... here's a sneak peek of pages 28 and 29 (out of 390 total pages)
from a screen snapshot of the word document "draft copy" ....

Publish date has been moved to next week.
I had friends review the proof books and they caught a few small typos and changes needed.
I also designed a new and improved cover
and cleaned up a few images.

I'm having the new proof copies delivered to me Monday
at the Margaritaville Beach Hotel in Pensacola.
If they pass inspection, we'll pull the trigger
and publish on Wednesday the 17th or Thursday the 18th.

I'll be the goober at the Landshark Landing Bar with the huge grin
and several huge margaritas.
:lol:
