Moar e-book

So my mother's obtained a copy of the e-book and has now discovered why I so hysterically refused to let her help me proof it: I tell a story about her in the introduction to Goblet of Fire. Fortunately, she just decided it was funny. Except that now her entire office wants to buy it. *facepalm*

The problem, of course, is that she's at a loss to explain what it is. That, and "annotated" is such a scary, academic word, when really footnotes are just a medium for me to get my chatty on. In hopes of making things more clear, here are some screencap samples of what the text actually looks like:

Prisoner of Azkaban




Goblet of Fire




Half-Blood Prince








As for PayPal: okay. Here's what I've worked out: PayPal money to dailydigest (at) yahoo (dot) com. If you couldn't buy from Lulu, send me $6.00. If you bought a copy for Lulu but wanted to buy multiple copies or share it with over people and want to compensate me for that, send me however multiples of $6. Or however much, I'm beyond worrying about it at this point. If it gives you a name, whatever--I can't change the name on the account, so c'est la vie.

I was going to say specify whether you need a download link, but I think I'll just email one back to everyone, just in case. Keep in mind, however, that replies are not automated. I'll try to set it up so I can email it from my phone if necessary, but if it's, you know, 3 am my time, you're probably going to have to wait a bit for a reply. This is why I would really encourage you to use Lulu if all you want is one copy and you can use that site. It'll keep better track of copies sold for me, and the benefits of having someone else's website handle the whole thing are worth it to me.

And if PayPal doesn't work--yeah, you can send a check, money order, or (if absolutely nothing else works) actual cash to me at the PO box address on my user info page. Seriously, whatever the price ends up being in your own currency, just round down to the nearest dollar. Sending coins through the post is probably not going to end well.

Also, still working on the Kindle version. Will probably try to put that on Amazon, I don't know.

Meanwhile: The Annotated Movies in Fifteen Minutes is allegedly better than Wil Wheaton's Memories of the Future. Dayna--Dayna, what are you--put down the axe--OH GOD NOOOOOOO

The axe-hewn body of Cleolinda Jones was found in her home this afternoon by the local K-9 unit. She will be missed.

THE ANNOTATED OBITUARIES IN 15 MINUTES

Ah, thanks for the screencaps. I'm definitely buying this when I get home!

I agree. I forgot that I haven't been able to read all the HP m15m. Now I can PLUS I get chatty Cleo snark. Excellent!

Just so you know, I would totally buy a book that was all stories about your mother. I think she's hilarious.

THIS. This this this this this.

That, and "annotated" is such a scary, academic word, when really footnotes are just a medium for me to get my chatty on.

She just needs to tell them it is clickable snark. That sounds less scary.

(Deleted comment)
It sounds like it's really getting positive. :) I'm waiting for my boyfriend to get paid, and then I will snag 6 bucks from him (he shouldn't mind, I supported his broke ass for over a year hehehe)

If your mom's office wants it Hooray, if not slightly embarrassing. But stilll Hooray

Breathe, breathe! No killing people. Killing people gets things messy. Other people can be wrong, remember?

:)

Just so you're aware, I ran into this. Some folks simply can't accept a file that large in their email. To stop the headache, I'd suggest telling people to make sure they can and to specify which email to send it to for that reason. It's a total PITA.

I'm actually not sending the file at all--I'm sending a link to download it from elsewhere.

Oh god, I love your footnotes. I think I'm going to be buying the shit out of this.

Those screenshots = Great advertising preview. Payday's two weeks away...

Can't wait to purchase as soon as I have access to a computer that is not owned by the State! (Uh, government-type people would look badly upon my downloading this to the taxpayer-owned computer.) Very happy for you that this project is taking off!

Incidentally, I know some people who were severely disappointed in Gary Oldman's casting. And I think I lot of them wanted Johnny Depp for Sirius. Which. WHAT. (I love me some Depp, but there are actual English actors out there, people!)

i don't like oldman much as Sirius. He's just not what I imagined Sirius would/should be.
However Depp?? just no >-

See, I would just tell your mom to say that since the parodies are "Movies in Fifteen Minutes" then what you've done is supply the commentary track. As I'm reading it, it struck me that it really really sounds like a director's commentary.

"...footnotes are just a medium for me to get my chatty on."

And the chatty footnotes are so effective that it reads like something that could be part of a conversation. Like, I had to stop myself from commenting on more of the footnotes. (The one I did comment on, it was my HP trivia knowledge monster roaring its way out of my head; it couldn't be stopped.) I wanted to -- lots -- but then I realized that the book's not that interactive.

That would be a level of meta I can't even... wait, I need a chart.

Harry Potter (Book)-> Harry Potter (Film)-> Harry Potter (M15)-> Harry Potter (M15+footnotes)-> Harry Potter (M15+footnotes+comments)

God, that's almost as bad as the soundtrack from the musical based on the book based on the film based on the book.

In other words, I approve of this plan :)

Your footnotes are just as much entertainment as anything else your pen touches, m'dear:) Thank you!
