Click to Look Inside

Well, the day has finally come! Amazon has finally enabled the "Look Inside" feature for the paperback version of The Complete Bubby Anthology. I'm impressed it only took 13 days for that to occur. I'm also extremely surprised to see how much more of the paperback version is made available for viewing, compared to the Kindle edition.

As for the individual Kindle editions, the process was much quicker. I believe the Look Inside feature was available the next day, which was rather nice. If you want to see them for yourself, click on the links below:

Who Is Braden Erp?

One of the questions most frequently asked of me is, who is Braden Erp, and why did you accept his review of your book on Amazon?

Let's just say he is a dear friend. So, in spite of his backhanded complements of the Bubby Anthology, I chose his review to best describe the product.

Now, there are some that have claimed that Braden Erp is simply an anagram for myself. If that were true, why does this picture of him look so unlike me?

A Necessary Apology

I believe apologies are in order. If you are reading this, you are likely aware that The Complete Bubby Anthology has been published in paperback and Kindle formats.

To the diehard fans, I have to apologize for not publishing the stories sooner.

To those of you discovering the hero named Bubby for the first time, I apologize that the stories are so lousy.

Don't get me wrong, I still stand by the hilarity of the stories, but I fully recognize that they are not well-written. In my defense, the five stories were written beginning in my freshman year of high school.

Publishing Bubby has been an experiment for me. I wanted to learn how to publish in print and in ebook format. Using Createspace to self-publish in print (and some nerdy programming skills to self-publish for Kindle), I feel more comfortable being able to publish future books that I am wanting to write.

So, for those of you that find errors in any edition of Bubby that you purchase, please let me know and I will do my best to update the files and upload them to Amazon. When this quasi-beta test is complete, I will look at publishing the ebook version on Smashwords, which will make it possible for die-hard fans to purchase the stories on their Nook, iPad, and other devices.
