The Tag: Page 19 [Oct. 10th, 2008|11:15 am]



Hey, remember Newbie?
So the whole book thing didn't work out as well as I'd envisioned. I figured that the right to make books was worth pushing for, since back in the day I was getting like 7 e-mails a day from people asking when they could buy books. I wasn't sure if that demand would continue, since I hadn't updated the comic in so long. But I was curious to find out! Well, the number of customers purchasing books.... one.

The books look really good, actually - professional quality, glossy paper, and all that. I'm surprised more people haven't bought them - aside from the cachet of owning a piece of LJ arcana, Frank: A Storybook at the least looks like a fabulous book to have around the house for young kids.

Thanks, Ryan!

You do realize that the odds of my buying your books are going up steadily. I have a small cousin who might enjoy a story book featuring a cute animal.

A Wiki-Editor meltdown is just a sight to behold. Especially the Flouncing. There should be dramatic music.

I worked with one of the Wikipedia admins at my last job, and yeah, that's just about 100% right. He was so damn arrogant about the whole thing, too.

Oh no! That's so sad!

Well, I'm glad you reminded me, cause I totally want a storybook. Actually, maybe two, I should find out if my nephew would like one. Are you going to keep them for sale for a while?

It's print-on-demand, so they're available anytime.

Now Frank is Back interest will rise again.

Re-run the cute baby Frank story in November, everyone'll want a copy for their little *fill in name of relative or friend* for a Christmas gift.

It's called striking while the iron is hot! & no, I don't work in Marketing.

I really, really want the books, I just can't afford it at the moment. I do plan on ordering them as soon as I have the money!

Don't worry Ryan! I'm sure more people will buy your awesome books soon enough, after all, it's been quite a while since the comic went on hiatus. just give it a bit more time. Besides, Christmas is coming soon, so you're bound to get orders then!

Your books will be on my wish list! :3

I imagine you could, but since you die if the person you tagged doesn't post it, you'd be dooming yourself.
