You mean, my new book, Tributes and Trash Talk: What Our Presidents Said About Each Other, which features over 350 pages of remarkable quotes by the Presidents about the Presidents for just $6.99 and can be purchased instantly via Amazon for your Kindle, iPhone, or iPad?

Of course, I’d love to see it printed, especially because of the amazing cover art designed by the wonderful Betsy Dye.  I’m old-fashioned and don’t have a Kindle or Nook or iPad myself.  I love having a printed copy of a book in my hands, overflowing bookshelves, and stacks of books on the floor of my apartment because I fill up my shelves so quickly.  However, the e-book method allows for self-publishing at my own pace and results in a bigger chunk of royalties for my work, so that’s the platform available to me right now.

In an ideal world, though, I’d love to have a printed copy (along with the nice royalty percentage) of my books and I’m confident that a couple of other projects currently in the pipeline will be released in a print edition as well as an e-book.

To help sell those projects to publishers in order to see printed copies in the future, you should definitely drop $6.99 on Tributes and Trash Talk so that we can show how big and loyal my audience is.  Plus, it’s a damn interesting book!
