You Will Get A Book Deal

Maybe . . .

I recently heard from a Jack Brickman at SuckerPunch Press, and they want to publish "You Will Behave" as a novella, with possibly a few additional stories. We've only had a few conversations via email, but it looks like this is the real deal.

So take this opportunity to read "You Will Behave" while it's still free.

Don't get too excited, though. Basically SuckerPunch Press is a newly launched micropress (they've only published one other book so far), selling titles almost exclusively through the web (www.suckerpunchpress.com). So don't expect to see "You Will Behave" on the shelves at your nearest Borders any time soon.

Do expect me to give you regular updates on the publishing process, and shove this all down your throat when the book's available for purchase.

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.


Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.


Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

Blogger The real life effects of Peritoneal Cancer Mesothelioma have become so high in cost to treat, that it just adds to the stress of the illness and ones health to fight the illness.
Take peritonea-mesothelioma Cancers.peritonea-mesothelioma cancers are the cancers that spread in the mesothelium tissues. Mesothelium in general is the name of tissue that forms lining of different body organs such as heart, lungs, abdomen and reproductive organs. The lining around abdominal organs is known as peritoneal membrane. Lining around lungs is called pleural membrane while the lining around heart is called pericardium.I created a site Peritoneal Cancer Mesothelioma that address this not sure it is exactly like You Will Get A Book Deal,but maybe you will approve of it's content.
