Reasons to Buy Wake Up Dead

I wrote a book. It's good. It's not very wordy. It got published. It's for sale. My publisher asked me to "market" it. I said okay. Please buy a copy. The book is a suspense novel in paperback and numerous eBook formats, and is now in its second printing. It has great crossover appeal to mystery and sci-fi lovers as well.

Not sold yet? Here are reasons to buy the book.

  1. It's good
  2. It's cheap
  3. It's lightweight
  4. It's compact
  5. It's durable
  6. It's disposable
  7. It's my last if it doesn't sell
  8. And best of all ...

Imagine the benefits of being a close, personal friend of a truly rich and famous person. You can live vicariously through me as I cruise the streets of Hollywood in an expensive sports car and cavort with beautiful people.

The book also makes a great gift idea. Remember, it's never too early to start Christmas shopping. Give a copy to your favorite friends and relatives. Get an autographed copy and brag about the people you rub elbows with. Autographed copies are available directly from me.

Books are also available from your favorite store. If not in stock, they'll need the author's name, book title, and ISBN number (0-9664520-5-4) to special order it for you. Or buy it from many other booksellers.


  1. Read it.
  2. Display it and tell people, "Oh yeah, I'm a good friend of the author."
