No Way Am I Buying A Big Mac!

The-Big-Mac-Index-3

I’m with Derek on this one. Fast food is too expensive for what you get. It would be far more beneficial to you from a nutritional standpoint if you discarded the thing pretending to be food in the guise of two halves of a bread bun surrounding plastic cheese and a highly questionable meat product of dubious origin, and simply ate the cardboard box your fast food comes in. If lovers of this kind of product simply followed my advice, they would very soon get their svelte figures back, instead of looking like bloated Hippopotami!!!

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Is it any wonder that the majority can’t be bothered to read books anymore?

People-Do-Not-Read-Anymore-4

Whether we like it or not, society in general is seriously dumbing down since it abandoned the pleasures of learning by reading a book, in favour of owning the next must have piece of techology. We are now in the age of visual rather than cerebral stimulation…

Making Money From Words Is Never Easy

Making-Money

Comparing the price of either a paperback or a hardback with the ebook has never made any kind of sense to me, and yet people somehow or other equate product quality with how much money the product is being offered at. Some people, particularly my own (the English), still turn their noses up at the ebook version of any book, believing that because its being offered in a cheap form popular in America, that it must be an inferior product. Yes you heard me right folks. I live in ‘the’ land of literary snobs!!!!

The ebook is just the latest and by far the cheapest, most convenient way of buying a book there is to be had at the moment, allowing more and more people to read a book of their choice on their phone while commuting to and from work every day.

Here’s something else for all the penny-pinching dumbasses out there to think about  –  if you didn’t like the book, what have you lost?  Damned all! Especially when you probably got a free copy of the ebook in a promotion. Either that or maybe you spent no more than $2.99. Whatever the case may be, wake up to yourselves and stop being so damnably snobbish about ebooks. Embrace them, they’re here to stay whether you like it or not!!!!

Now the real reasons for those price differences

Just a reminder on Christmas day about my Amazon book links folks

Sorry its only your’s truly, not Father Christmas

Most things in life that we’re told are important, aren’t, especially if you are a writer. The only thing that really matters, is writing that next story…

~~~

While you are all opening your Christmas presents and overstuffing yourselves today, think of me still hard at it, working on my latest work in progress, CELESTE cover 8,5 x 11which I promised will be published next year, with my customary cigarette in one corner of my mouth and a glass of my favourite brand of English Bitter and a Christmas mince pie close at hand.

In return there is something that each and every one of you, my blog’s faithful four hundred and eighty-four followers could do for me. Were you to first of all click on the Amazon link appropriate to you in the following list, why not purchase a copy of just one of my books already available to you. You would be giving this hard working writer the best Christmas present ever… 😉

Merry Christmas to you all
