Ebook News: New Satire Compilation, Two Ebooks Temporarily Withdrawn, And… What?! (2/2)

Ebook News: New Satire Compilation, Two Ebooks Temporarily Withdrawn, And… What?! (2/2)

Yesterday, I said that I’ve recently decided to temporarily withdraw The Great Flâneur Massacre from the market, as well as Reflections In and Out of Season. I will reintroduce them later. I gave my reasons for doing so… Always important to strategize carefully!

And I also said:

I need to think about accessibility: particularly because this is my first ever piece of extended fiction! I don’t want to give an unnecessarily negative impression.

I also said:

So what am I going to do?

Well, that would be telling! Find out tomorrow…

Here’s my plan going forward.

1. On March 10, I will put through a request to Draft2Digital, to remove the two books in question. I Shouldn’t Do God will remain, and I still intend (as things stand) to publish more free ebooks from the series Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes, in the same Draft2Digital-associated outlets as before. So if you wish to download the free ebook Reflections In and Out of Season or the 99p/99 cent etc. ebook The Great Flâneur Massacre from the usual outlets (see here), please do so before March 10.

2. If anyone misses the latter opportunity to download these ebooks in their current form, but is still interested in reading them, please email wallacerunnymede@gmail.com, and I can fix you up a copy or copies in whatever format you require, e.g. .mobi, .epub., and so on.

3. As a consolation for this,  I am running through a second volume of Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes. The book may not appear immediately at the relevant outlets: please be patient, and I will update you. If it’s all sorted by 6 Feb, I shall be very happy. If not, don’t worry! I will update you here and on my Wallace Runnymede blog, either way.

(Important Update 05 March):

I was waiting on the last outlet: but I believe the book is finally out in all outlets: 24 Symbols, Apple iBooks, Nook, Kobo, Inktera, Page Foundry, Scribd, Tolino.  You can start now, by going direct to each site/service and searching (of course!)  either ‘Wallace Runnymede’ or Football Frikkups.’)

4. The two ebooks will be republished at a later date. I don’t have a timeframe, given my recent commitments. However, I can say that The Great Flâneur Massacre will form part of a project that is somewhat larger and (I trust) more accessible to people who haven’t studied humanities and cultural studies in recent decades. I’d like to aim for a significantly wider audience.

Any questions, please email me, or leave a comment here or on my blog.

I’m no Isaiah Bickerstaff, but if I at least get anywhere near the calibre of good old JS, I’ll be happy!


P.S. Remember to check out the serialization of the Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophe series (and much more!) at the new site: www.satirecatastrophes.blogspot.co.uk Please also feel free to contribute your own insights or own satire work! Usual email address: wallacerunnymede@gmail.com

P.P.S. Neocon Surveillance and Neocon Surveillance Network are still going strong after the recent launch of both sites. If you’d like like to collaborate with us and write for either project, or indeed the prospective third site (Satirical-Industrial Complex), which will be satire-only (instead of mixed satire and prose commentary like Neocon Surveillance), please email wallacerunnymede@gmail.com or appleseedike@gmail.com. Oh, and March 10 is important for yet another reason: that’s the launch day of SIC!
