Tad's Happy Funtime - the Novel

(Updating links, and a few remarks)

This book represents this blog's "Greatest Hits," plus some additional stories I never got around to posting, all edited for make better reading. It is now available in paperback and ebook for the Kindle.

Obviously... I hope you'll go get yourself a copy. And obviously I hope that collective "you" in the previous sentence represents an absurdly large number of people.

You can help me reach an absurdly large number of people, by the way. Here are some ways you might do that, if you are so inclined:

1. You can do the usual social media stuff that you do with books that you like. (Is it okay if I assume you're going to like it? I had to read it like eight times, so I can't tell if I like it, or if I have Stockholm Syndrome. "It's you and me, book. You have just as much to lose as I do..."

2. You can write a review on Amazon. Apparently, Amazon is very finicky about the idea that friends and/or family would post a review just to make me look more popular than I am, so don't let on that we're such good friends. And be honest; I need at least ten reviews to unlock the mysteries of Being A Real Author(tm), but I don't think they have to be ten good reviews. (Of course, I may just sit here at my computer weeping at your 1-star review complaining that I left out the story about the time we went off and did karaoke in Germany, and you tried to do the "Material Girl" in what you called a "Scottish"'s not my fault you sounded more like Korn and scared those poor German country folk!)

3. You can ask your local library to buy my book. This is a real thing that many people forget about, and it would be a real boost to my exposure and bottom line. I know you might think it won't make much difference, but my friends, you are scattered to the farthest corners of the globe, and even if half of your libraries each bought a single copy, that would still be... I don't know, more than what I have currently sold after only three days on the market.

Right now, I know that someone in each of these places is reading this post:
North Carolina
Maryland (duh...)
Washington DC
Rhode Island
China (Hi, Dave!)
...and probably Russia, because I check my traffic sources, and someone there is reading this blog.

So please do spread the word.
