My new book (written as “Hugo Navikov,” my publisher’s nom de pulp), Prehistoric Beasts and Where to Fight Them, is on sale for Kindle through the end of today, November 2!
“Just 99 cents?” you ask, incredulous but hopeful.
“Verily!” I answer, as if I were trying to win a bet not to use the word yes. “But hasten, yon knave, for this Kindle sale will last only until the sun sets.”
“In the west?”
“Um … yes, my rhetorical construct. In the west.”
“A question for you, real fast.”
“Proceed,” I say, ingesting tea infused with a packet of Schmeckel’s Patented Headache Powder.
“How big of a bargain is Prehistoric Beasts and Where to Fight Them, anyway? I mean, it’s 97,000 words of pure pulp pleasure.”
“I somehow knew you were going to ask that incredibly not-stiff and totally spontaneous question. Indeed, for the nominal price of 99 cents—not to mention that it’s FREE to read with Kindle Unlimited—you get every tasty bite of the engrossing and filling literary meal of Prehistoric Beasts.”
I continued, “Break it down, yo: that’s 0.00001 cents per word. That’s one hundred-thousandth of a cent. A great deal for readers, and the word of mouth is going to be good indeed; hence the super sale price.”
“Wow! Ima get mine right now!”
Ima? “Gah, please don’t say that.”
“Sorry,” you say. “I mean, Ima get mine very soon!”
Also, the paperback is available signed and inscribed from me!
