If the Mayans had predicted the end of the world one year earlier, It might have got me off the hook.

.......... Those bloody Mexicans, total disregard for anyone but themselves.

Anyway, enough about Doomsday. Let's get back to reality. The Experiment. As you all know, I have postponed the giveaway of free books for seven days. 24 hours later and I am convinced that both Kindle's and Smashword's servers have crashed. What other explanation could there be for zero sales? It's not my fault, it must be theirs.

What does this prove? I don't have a following. My current 232 readers are obviously mutes and prison inmates serving 20 years in solitary confinement, to whom the word-of-mouth thing hasn't quite caught on in their social circles.

My thoughts? Well, suicide is a long way off and writing poetry is even further from my mind. But I shall wait these seven long days to see if anything happens in the world of the 99 cent book-buyers of the world. You never know, I may get lucky and some lady from Alabama might find a dollar down the side of her couch.

I have bumped the price of  The Sunday Club: (this book makes Dan Brown's stories look like some sort of dodgy film script that even Tom Hanks wouldn't lower himself to take part in) to $5.99 then discounted it to $1.50 on Smashwords. Everyone loves a discount!

I must warn you now viewers, I think the next six days are going to be very lean. But! As usual, I have a plan.

Thank you for your following,
in misery, I'm not wallowing,
Poetry I shall not write,
for to me it sounds like shite,
the bottle of pills, I won't be swallowing.
