Just in time for your holiday tequila shots (that’s not just my family’s tradition, right?), the Young Donald shot glasses have arrived! Anyone who posts an online review will be entitled to a glass. Same offer to anyone who just wants to come over on a nice day and do outdoor shots with me.
Where to review?
Well, Donald still hasn’t conceded in the 1963 Homecoming King race at his military school, proving the more you know about young Donald, the less old Donald will be able to surprise you!
I think everyone (in the US, at least) should have received the book by now (with e-copies sent out by email from Inkshares on October 6). If you have not yet received a copy you were expecting, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In case you missed the Washington Post piece on the book:
Once you have read the book, if you like it, please consider:
(1) mentioning it or the Washington Post piece on Twitter, Facebook, Linked-In or elsewhere (even in actual conversation with live people, if you are into that); and
(2) Posting a review (or just rate the book if reviews are not your thing) on:
(b) GOODREADS: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/54772271-young-donald
Thanks again for your support! Would love to hear any reactions to the story!
Howdy, folks. As things continue to move along with Bane of All Things (BoAT), I have something new for you – the first look at the next book in the series, The Crucible Tree (TCT).
Please check it out at https://www.inkshares.com/books/the-crucible-tree and be sure to click that FOLLOW button!
Now, this second book is in “Draft Mode.” I am not yet taking pre-orders. That will come later – like when BoAT is actually available and headed your way. And as I said in my last update, that is likely next summer as we wait for the world of book retail and promotion to return to some semblance of normal.
In the meantime, I continue to work away and keep the dream alive, eager to share more of this story. At the link above, you will find sample chapters to read. These have been carefully selected to A) avoid spoilers for Bane of All Things, and, B) avoid as much as possible dropping you into the middle of something with no clue what’s going on.
So, please check it out, give it a comment on the REVIEWS tab, and click that FOLLOW button. The more reviews and followers TCT has, even in Draft Mode, the more attention it will draw from other users on the Inkshares platform.
Accessing your log-in
Now, it may have been many moons since you last logged into your Inkshares account, and you have to be logged in to follow or post a review. If you have any issue, it can usually be fixed with a password reset – click the FORGOT PASSWORD link.
This is obvious and easy to do on a desktop. But if you are visiting on a mobile device – tablet or smartphone – you may have log-in issues such as being told your password is wrong or your email is already in use. Even if it’s not obvious, the real issue, and the fix, is again to request a password reset.
If you still have a problem, you can contact email@example.com for support.
That’s all for now. As always, thank you again for your continued patience and support!
Stay safe and be kind.
I’m excited to report that my essay related to Young Donald appears in the Washington Post Arts & Entertainment section this weekend:
