Automatic, the Real (Well, Paper) Version

So I wrote this book. It's a short book -- 15,000 words, or about a quarter the size of your average novel.

The book's on Kindle and as a pdf for pretty cheap, $1.99. I'm an old-fashioned sort, though -- I really like reading things in my hands. So I handmade a version of Automatic, which you can buy right here, and see photographs of below.






It's called Automatic, and I think it's really amazing. It's about my best friend and I, growing up as nerds in a  rough neighborhood, and falling in love and going crazy and listening to R.E.M., and him dying. (Spoiler, but it happens pretty early.)

The printed version is a little more expensive than the electro one -- it's $4.99, including postage (inside the US). It also includes a free download of the ebook.

You can order it on PayPal right now:


So, it's a good deal, right? But you're asking, is it hot? Because you're like that. And it's okay to ask.


The front features a cutout cover. The inside front and back covers are hand-lettered by me.





Inside, the pages are printed in a font that's easy to read (I could kill some of my favorite books for having ugly chapter headings) and large, but not too large. 



I also play with the text a bunch. You'll see. 


(It's blurry because I'm using the camera on my $25 cellphone, not because the words are. Promise.)


Seriously, just $4.99. And you'll get an ebook to read right now, while you wait.



(By the way, I can only ship to the USA. If you're abroad, drop a note, let me know where you are, and I'll set up a special link.)

Can you ship internationally - or more specifically, to the UK?
