I usually give my once a year appeal to buy Bumfuzzle a couple of weeks before Christmas, but this year things just got too busy. And one of the things we were busy with was putting a new cover together for Bumfuzzle — Just Out Looking for Pirates. Our Bum friends over at Worldwide Optimize designed the new cover in order to spruce up our now five year old book because, basically, Ali and I were just tired of looking at the old cover.
So that was kind of fun actually. The Bum book has sold in the neighborhood of 15,000 copies overall—and who knows, maybe it will manage to sell another 15,000 before it’s retired to the bottom of the e-book shelf. Note to anyone thinking they will go sail around the world and pay for it by writing a book after they are done: you might want to consider hitting a whale and sinking your boat days before the completion of your circumnavigation, and follow it up by losing your leg in a shark attack, an attack in which you manage to kill the shark with your bare hands and then (yes, there’s more) survive at sea for fifty-five days floating in a Coleman cooler while eating only shark fin soup. Do all that and you might cover your costs.
As always I’d like to ask that any of you that have read the book please take a moment to go and leave a review over on Amazon. Good, bad, whatever; reviews sell books. Review it here.
Thanks to everyone for your support all these years.
