... I thought I'd post a hoppy video. And this one just happened to cross my path yesterday. This is a lot like how Rita looks when she's amped up about something. Luckily she doesn't get amped up too often!
In Other News...
If by any chance you were thinking of purchasing a paperback copy of Rescue Me, Maybe, I wanted to let you know that the price is going up next week. Right now it's only $8.47 on Amazon, plus free shipping if you buy enough other stuff to hit $25. (I don't know why it's such an odd price. I marked it $9.95, but Amazon marked it down - which is cool, cuz I still get the same royalty.)
Here's why the price is going up - which will only be of interest to any of you folks who maybe plan to someday self-pub a book, so if you don't plan to do that, just skip on over this part. Anyway... the cheapest way for a self-pubber like myself to get a paperback book out is to use a POD (Print On Demand) service. I use CreateSpace, which is owned by Amazon. Publishing your book with them means it's available for sale on Amazon.com and Amazon in Europe.
If you want your book to be available in places beyond that (like Barnes & Noble, both online and - theoretically - in B&N stores, in libraries, or in small independent stores) you have to pay $25 for their "Expanded Distribution Channel." It costs more per unit of course to have your books sent to these other distributors, so you need to raise the price to cover the added costs.
So, next week I'll probably be upping the price to $11.95 or $12.95 (depends on what the costs are - they obviously won't let me sell it for less than the total print + distribution cost). But then, after a while, Amazon will probably mark it down again. For instance, What the Dog Ate is listed at the $11.95 price I selected, but Amazon has it marked down to the odd price of $10.76.
Just thought I would let y'all know the price is going up - just in case!

Happy Mirth Watch Thursday. Go and be mirthful.
