I can’t sleepblog and some Lost Days news

In a group, club, organization? Get a 25% discount on Lost Days!

Whoa!  I missed posting yesterday!  My excuse?  I fell asleep on my recliner.  I’m not joking.  I fell into a deep, unexpected sleep.  It was so deep Mia freaked me out a bit when she woke me.  I didn’t know where I was, and I only had a vague idea who I was.  I was in no mood or shape to sit down at the computer and blog.

Why was I so tired?  I’ve been getting up at four in the morning in an effort to be more productive.  The trouble is I’m still going to bed at my normal time.  It finally caught up to me.  I’ll adjust soon enough, but until then I ask for your patience. 

Top R.W. Ridley news for today: I’ve worked out a 25% discount for groups who want to buy and read Lost Days.  What does that mean?  If you’re in a book club or you work for a school or part of some cryptozoology group, you can contact me at lostdays@rwridley.com, and I will send you a link to a website, and a discount code so you can get 25% off Lost Days.  All I ask is that you share the discount with everyone in your group.  In fact if you can get 10 people to buy it, we can arrange for a phone conference, and I’ll be happy to answer any of your questions about the book or writing or bigfoot or all of the above.  

Now, please forgive me. My comfy recliner is calling my name…zzzzzzzzzzzz.

Note to Oprah – Stop Picking Nonfiction

An Apple a Day Makes for a Great Fake Memoir!

An Apple a Day Makes for a Great Fake Memoir!

I’m not blaming Oprah for endorsing authors who fake their memoirs because really, how much fact checking can you do when somebody makes claims about their own lives, but my advice to Oprah is to make her book club an all fiction book club. Just avoid the whole fact checking thing all together.

From ABC News: Is Oprah’s Golden Touch Tarnished?

In the interest of full disclosure, the Takers are not real creatures who devoured virtually everyone on the planet. There fact checking done! Now you’re free to pick my book, Oprah.
