I love this site. I have found a home.
I want to help this site, but my wife and I have had no money (negative disposable income) for so long.
I hope this is okay to do. As my imaginary uncle who was in the mob used to say, “It’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission”, so…
I first want to thank everyone who purchased Aldus Shrugged, my satire of all that is wrong with our country today.
Your purchases allowed me to donate several hundred dollars to re-elect our President, and I sincerely thank you.
I truly believe that a message of an altruistic-flavored Capitalism can resonate, and change the world just that tiny bit. Plus, it is soothing therapy to laugh at today’s GOP and Tea Partiers, and the irrational opposition to President Obama.
While the above goodness is supplied in droves in Aldus Shrugged, I am hesitant to shamelessly hawk. Yes, I want people to read it, but it is not about the money. I do see longtime Kossacks write diaries titled “I just wrote a book!”, or something similar, so…
Between NOW (Yes, NOW) and January 31st, 2013, ALL ROYALTIES from sales of Aldus Shrugged will go to support this site, whether that means gift subscriptions, or direct donations. I pledge to donate 100% of my royalties earned between now and 1/31, to this great site, to help advance the cause!please click here.
To be purely open and honest, I make between 3 and 4 dollars a sale. Surely you could take the 13. or so bucks that it costs to buy Aldus Shrugged, and just donate directly to DailyKos. I would never discourage that. However, if you want to buy a very entertaining and therapeutic novel, and support DailyKos, then please
(As I have said before, I get just under 4 bucks per sale, and Jeff Bezos and his employees at amazon get the rest. That’s not a bad deal, really, as Jeff Bezos is not much of a dick, relatively speaking; and if he ever diaries on here, I will tell him that! For god’s sake, it’s not as if Papa John Schnatter published the darn thing!!)
Thank you everyone! I will do my part to help this site!
Please watch out for my next satirical political novel about mid-2013; set in Brooklyn, in the time of Obama's 2nd term.
