1984 Griggit Cartoon,the Latest News on THE EIGHT FINGERED CRIMINAL'S SON and Tom Jones


This cartoon, drawn by yours truly, appeared in the Los Angeles Easy Reader in 1984.

                                  THE EIGHT FINGERED CRIMINALS SON NEWS

The book is scheduled to come out in early November.

In addition to GELI Book Store in Bangkok, Thailand, the Eight Fingered Criminal's Son will be available at Tempe Auto Repair in Tempe, Arizona. Sure selling a book at an auto repair shop is a weird idea, but it just might be weird enough to work - darn it.

A second book promo starring music legend, Tom Jones is in the capable hands of editor extraordinaire, Brady "Cat" White. I should have it up on Blogger, YouTube, and Face Book tomorrow.

G-Man,
Does Geli mean something in Swedish or Spanish?

And the second domino falls. I bet Changing Hands will stock a few for you...

Clif,
Do you have a Changing Hands connection?

Clif said...

Just walk in, tell 'em you've self-published a book and ask if they'll take a couple on consignment. Then let me know and I'll go buy my copies there.

Then ask 'em if you can set up a "writer's talk," invite all of your friends and sell some more.

Next thing ya know, you're on their best seller list.

And the third domino falls!

Clif,
I'm digging this domino analogy. Feels powerful. Word on the street is small book stores seldom carry self published books, but it doesn't hurt to try. Like the great one (Gretsgy) said, you miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take.
I really apperciate the good mojo, Clif.

Changing Hands carried Val's childrens' board books. She'd be happy to tell you about her positive experience there.

Clif,
This is encouraging. I do want to talk to Val. Also, I'd like to check out her children's book.
