Chasing Unicorns is opening a bookstore, where you can buy books for free. For the cost of just one click of a mouse, you can open up any book in my Free Bookstore, and start reading at your leisure.
You can even download these books (though it may cost a few more mouse clicks), and hoard them on your own computer, smartphone, tablet, ouija board, or whatever reading device you use. They’re in PDF format, so they should work on most devices.
You can also give them away, as they have a Creative Commons license that allows unlimited distribution by anyone, as long as authorship is blamed on me, Tippy Gnu. Hell, you can even sell them if you wish. Good luck with that.
My free books come with a money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied. How can you beat such a deal?
There are currently just two books for sale, but I anticipate more will be added over time. I’m dredging up the bones of my long-abandoned oeuvre of works that have been taken out of print. I’m revising them, tagging them with a Creative Commons license, and then selling them for free to the general public.
I took these books out of print because I got tired of all the paperwork required, paying taxes on the piddly royalties. I know I won’t get rich, but by giving them away, maybe I can get famous. And without any tax consequences.
If you want to buy one of my free books, just click on the Free Bookstore menu item, at the top of this blog.
You may already be familiar with one of the books. I’ve been selling free copies of Unikonics on this blog since the summer of 2018. And since that time, I’ve also offered it for free download at obooko.com. According to my stats at obooko.com, Unikonics has been downloaded 500 times, and has been rated 4 out of 5 stars by 17 people who actually read it. I have no idea how much it’s been downloaded from this blog, but I’m guessing about one or two million times. Give or take one or two million.
When Unikonics was selling for real money (99 cents), I only sold one copy. And so you see, I just had to find the right price, in order to move this product. A lesson learned in marketing.
I attribute the poor sales of Pumping Up Piglipple to its shitty book cover. I’ve never been good at cover design, and this is probably the shittiest of all my artistic endeavors. But as they say, never judge a book by its shitty cover.
I think you’ll enjoy Pumping Up Piglipple as much as you’ve enjoyed Unikonics. Even if you’ve never read Unikonics. Both books are short, so in the unlikely event that you find yourself in agony reading them, be assured that your torture won’t last long.
I hope you’ll visit my Free Bookstore, even if it’s just to get out of the rain. And if you keep coming back, as it expands its offerings, I’m sure that will encourage me to write more and more drivel, until my store looks like a fucking Barnes & Noble.
Bienvenidos! Welcome! Come on in!
