Merchandising Madness!!!

Me and my split personalities.
Good and evil go so well together, don't you think?

There I am, all ready to sell my books: Night Walk, which I wrote and is very evil, and Owie Cadabra's Verbal First Aid, which I illustrated, and is very good.

The print edition of Night Walk was the big seller yesterday. I think in general, people tend to prefer horror over happiness. Just look at the evening news if you don't believe me.

But I did manage to sell Owie Cadabra's Verbal First Aid as well. Some people, it turns out, do have heart.

Note that Mr. Evil Clown was in attendance. He's such a follower, or should I say stalker.

For you writers out there, if I learned one lesson yesterday it was that you can never do too much advertising. I wish I had done more, but it was a balancing act between how much time and money I spent vs. return on investment (ROI for you business-types). In hindsight, a little more "I" would have been a good idea. You sell, you learn. Next time, I'll buy a 30-second Super Bowl commercial spot.


  1. Hahahaa! Dave, glad to hear you sold a few of each. Yeah, each of these entrepreneurial outings is a lesson. I actually think you have way more than 2 different personalities! Bwaahahahahaaa!

  2. Why did you have to go and tell everyone about me having dozens of personalities? (At least you don't know about the other hundred).
