My GF said to say she thinks you look like John Cusack in the movie The Italian Job.

@40hz: Believe it or not, people have been telling me that for years!

No problem :)

Also... a question... on your blog, you have transcendant living... shouldn't that be transcendent? :)

@k - liked that picture of you over at Columbia Magazine.

My GF said to say she thinks you look like John Cusack in the movie The Italian Job. :Thmbsup:
 (see attachment in previous post)
High praise indeed. She likes John Cusack. 8)
er...isn't that Ed Norton?

Maybe she meant John Cusack in the Raven?

^ That was a great movie! I saw it only a couple months ago, on Netflix.

It can only help :)  You might want to update your about me also... any little bit of promotion helps, and some people actually look at those profiles when you post elsewhere :)

My "About Me" page is up to date. It's had 30 viewers. Sold my first copy of Kyrathaba Rising on Amazon today. CreateSpace should soon push 5"x8" paperback version to Amazon as an option in addition to the ebook format. I've already ordered 3 paperback copies. One gal I work with wants an autographed copy. If any of you want an autographed copy, it's $10.80 plus shipping/handling to mail it to you. Otherwise, it'll be available at $10.80 on Amazon. At that price-point, I make $1.00 royalty per sale.

The about me that I saw on your blog didn't seem to contain any mention of your burgeoning authorship, nor links to your site, so I didn't think it was up to date.
* wraith808 shrugs

Also, many of your links posted on your G+ stream now go to 404s.  You might want to update or delete those. :)

But that's cool about the purchasers, and the hard copy :)

I thought you meant this about me: "about.me/kyrathasoft/

I'll update the blog to promote myself more obviously.

Okay, there's now an About Me page on the blog, and it's in the primary menu:

LOL... I'm not being clear enough.  Go to your old blogspot blog.  Look to the right.  There's something about you there... probably not a big deal, but I figured I'd mention it. :)

Yeah, I saw it. Should I remove it? Or might it encourage others to click-through to the new Wordpress blog?

Nope. She meant John Cusak. She knows her babe-magnets. I got the film wrong. :-[

The movie was 1408. Which she said. But I was thinking Ed Norton so I.J. was the movie I was thinking about.

According to her Ed Norton doesn't look anything at all like John Cusack. (I think they look very similar. Enough to pass as brothers at least.)

I guess the genders really do see their opposites differently. 8)

Yet another very complimentary review of Kyrathaba Rising.

I currently have six people who have promised reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, so hopefully some more are soon to follow.

I didn't know if you could edit it.  Perhaps even make it a bit more concise to talk specifically about your authorship.  With a long one, not really sure how many people will read it... but a short one, I'd think so.  And not sure where that profile is shared... but if it is with other places, it can be self-promotional.  Any little bit helps :)

It wouldn't let me edit it, only delete it. So I did and posted some relevant info promoting myself as an author.

Ok. I opened up a Smashwords account and bought me a copy!

Just loaded it up on my hand-me-down Nook. (EPub looks fantastic - love the cover!) Looking forward to spending some quality time with this.

And just think, when K-Man moves into the sci-fi big leagues someday, we can all say "Hey! I know that guy...we used to rap about books over at this place called Donation Coder..."

We need autographed hard copies before that happens :D

I've ordered 3 paperbacks to autograph and sell to some local friends.

Why don't we compile a list of ppl here on DC that want an autographed copy, and I'll make a bigger order, autograph them all, and then ship. They'll be $10.80 apiece, plus shipping/handling cost.

40hz, thanks for the purchase. So appreciated! I also sold a copy on Amazon last night.

Perry is amazing isn't he? He's also the reason paperbacks are now available. I couldn't wrap my head around the CreateSpace exacting specifications for front/spine/back graphic.

Be alerted, 40hz, it ends on a cliffhanger. A couple of reviewers have griped about that, but they also both said they HAVE to buy volume 2, to find out what happens (see my plan?) I'd appreciate your review on Goodreads and Amazon when you've read the book :)
