The hell with Amazon
I've added a link to my list that takes you straight to Barnes & Noble (http://productsearch.barnesandnoble.com/search/results.aspx?ATH=Kyle+Sullivan&STORE=BOOK) where they offer all my books in paperback and a couple of them in their own version of Kindle, "Nook." I'm not buying anything from Amazon, again, and a friend of mine in LA has said he won't either. Same for a cousin of mine. I know Amazon won't care; they're too damn big to. But they have proven over and over they are an enemy of freedom of speech and are unworthy of my business.
I just finished the new chapter one of "The Lyons' Den" and after the first of the year, I'll have it ready for feedback. I hope people are still willing to help me make this book as good as it can be. It'll be a quick read -- one of my shortest books at barely over 50K in wordage -- and I want it to be as fun as possible. Then I'll offer it to publishers like Star Books and see what happens. Maybe I'll even start my own site up and offer it in downloads. I don't know yet. I'm tired of dealing with twits who think they can tell you what to think, say or do even as they refuse to pay you anything like they said they would...and there are so many options available to let you avoid that.
Long live the inter-web. And just for the hell of it...
Yip, yip, yip, HOWWWLLLLLLLL.
UPDATE: I also finished chapter 2.
