Welcome to Tiwesdaeg.
Now you know how to say Tuesday in Old English. Don’t you feel cooler already? First off, for those of you wanted wanted to come to Kim’s installation ceremony where she becomes an elder of our church, it’s been moved to Sunday, August 18th, in the morning. Message me if you want info.
Now, to the fun stuff.
Recently, I joined a slew of authors who had numerous Amazon reviews disappear. That may be due to them enforcing their policy that requires people to spend $50 a year for them to post reviews and to have those reviews remain online. They’ve enforced the posting part since its inception, but going back and removing reviews seems kind of petty. Still, it’s their company, not mine, and I’m sure those reviews were taking up space Mr. Bezos could use for more important stuff.
A fan pointed this out to me. Oddly, I’m not one of those authors who checks his reviews. But this fan wanted to show someone The Brittle Riders and was appalled to see how sparse the review section had become. It’s hard to tell someone something is cool when there’s just a couple of lonely reviews there.
To be fair, we don’t use Amazon as our primary selling point. They encourage authors to use free, or heavily discounted, promotions to get their ranking numbers up and end up on lists. My landlord may think it’s cool to see my name on a list, but he prefers to see it on a rent check.
So, off I went to other sites to see if they had any reviews. And they did. And they were universally positive.
So I copied them all, snagged my favorites, and now have a nifty graphic you can share.
If you want your own copy of my stuff, but think that it would look cooler with my signature, you’re in luck. I’ll be at the House of Blues (Chicago) on August 17th for I AM Fest signing stuff, smiling, and waving. Okay, not so much smiling, but I do wave. I’ll also be wearing a tutu so you can easily find me.
I rock tutus.
This will be my last appearance until November, when I’ll be all over northern Illinois. That wasn’t planned. But, as it works out, just in time for the winter holiday season, I’ll everywhere from near Hammond, Indiana to St. Charles, Illinois, with stops in between. If you can’t make I AM Fest you have options.
If you’d rather just sit at home and listen to me blather about nonfiction topics, you’re in luck. I do a weekly guest appearance on Ryan Gatenby’s The Big Wake Up Call every Friday at 9:10 AM (CDT) on WBIG. Just CLICK HERE to be immersed in the coo-coo coolness of my voice. You’ll find me listed as Bill McCormick or World News Center. But the search engine is easy to use so you shouldn’t have any problems.

My contributions to the package include;
Juggernaut – Set in the distant future, Juggernaut is the story of a human/alien fusion and her strange family. They live in an era where sexuality, in all its myriad forms, isn’t taboo but violence is. This group of aristocratic soldiers, who just happen to be related, must face down their own petty, in the grand scheme of things, problems and stop a trans-dimensional creature before it destroys the universe. Or not. It really depends on their mood at the time.
Legends Parallel – This is the perfect comic series for those who think quantum physics isn’t violent or sexy enough. Five earths and one woman wants to rule them all. This is the story of the man, his mom, and her lover who have to stop that from happening.
Svarozic – A woman trapped inside a man, a god trapped inside a human. Since they’re all one person, she’s got issues. This is a very TEEN FRIENDLY comic. I wrote it to give trans kids a superhero of their own. It’s even got a Gypsy circus. Because every comic set in Russia needs a Gypsy circus.
Jungle Grrl – In a distant future sex is encouraged, violence is frowned upon, and our hero, her bestie, and their dino clone, try to eke out a living in a sex park while figuring out the meaning of life. The existential poetry based on beer should be enough to make you grab this one.
Ruh Roh Rangers – This is the parody that’ll ruin your childhood but make your day. Those four meddlesome kids are now four meddlesome adults.
See you next week.
