This is sooooooooooooooo coooooooooooool!

(Although a little anticlimactic and kind of post-partum tristesse, but that'll pass)

 

It's not really a crime book...although it addresses solutions that are regrettable still considered crimes in many countries.

 

I've been chipping away at publication in books, but this time it's MY book.  With MY name on the COVER.  Hear me roar.

 

It's strictly ebook.  After all, it's only about 12000, words, not counting the sample chapter.

The idea is a sort of interactive book that will grow as other women send in contributions of their own experience in this highly controversial area of social interaction.  At some point, it will probably be a paperback.

No Boyz allowed!  (I don't have time to keep explaining it)

 

This whole 99 cent ebook thing is part of my publisher's strategy that I'm not sure I totally grasp or go along with, but here it is.  Hot diggiddy dawg!

 

Here's a marketing thing I DO understand.  It's under a lousy buck.  You can afford this, even if you're a starving writer saving up for a pistol.  But if you promise, cross your heart, to give me a nice review on amazon.com ("Nice" meaning a review that's not mean and stupid, is all)  I'll get you an ebook to read for free!  How wonderful it that?

That's great, Grant. Congrats.  It looks pretty cool, kind of a different feel from similar weeklies in the States.

Monday Mag is an alternative weekly based in Victoria, BC. Comes out in print every Thursday and has been around for 36 years. Takes up too much of my writing time, but is a very cool publication to be running. This year, we tied for the most nominations of all community papers in the province for the BC Newspaper Awards - with 6 of the nominations for excellence in writing.

So is that Monday magazine just Vancouver?  Print also?

Looks pretty cool.  Is a coincidence that the issue I went to from here has a front page feature on crime and punishment?  (The reality, silly, not the book)

I think it's cool you carry adult ads.  There's been a lot of weirdness about that in the States.  Even Craigslist stopped carrying them.

Oh, you boys are all alike.

Cammy, I write one mystery series in first-person-female perspective - and in my day job as editor-in-chief of Monday Magazine, I've even been accused of being a man-hater for the number of social justice features that I run. I try to tell them that as a husband and father, I'm definitely not a man hater. However, I am a predator/rapist/pedophile/abuser hater and make no bones about it.

Now see, that's part of the whole concept.  Women are naturally considerate and pre-thoughtful.  There has to be some kind, nurturing foreplay before blasting away at some deserving tea bags.

At least you're putting some considerations on the table before we get out nuts shot off. That's all we ask.

Hey!  Wait a sec!  GUYS aren't supposed to like this!  You're supposed to quail and shrivel in horror!

Comment by Cammy May Hunnicutt on February 27, 2012 at 7:00am

Thanks, Grant.  There were some disputes with the publisher, let me tell you.

Love the title, Cammy
