So book. Much sale. Wow.

So, I’ve been having fun with dogecoin recently, the cryptocurrency, which has a really awesome community vibe to it, and I’d like to do something to help it along.  And, of course, I’ve no objection at all to “doing well by doing good”.  So here’s what I’m going to do – a special sale for this week, ending Sunday 19th. My first book usually costs $2.99 on Amazon Kindle – but if you pay in DOGE, I’m going to offer it to you at 1/3rd off – which at the time of writing, and for the duration of this sale, I’m going to say is 10,000 DOGE.

If you want to take advantage of this offer, here’s what to do:

  1. E-mail me with the e-mail address you want the book to go to, and the dogecoin address that you’re sending payment from, so that I know it’s you;
  2. Send the 10,000 DOGE to DKoZtfVXT6BAJMU1RwgpxLbQ2snL6VRfcG ;
  3. I’ll send you the .mobi e-book file within 24 hours of confirmed payment.

To the moon!
