This post is really for my real friends and readers.

I’m not gonna do the ‘SEO’ thing on this one. No ‘focus keywords’ or tags or boxes or bags.

If you’re reading it, I wrote it for you.

I became an author by accident.

I felt  like I was living in a fictional world. Hell, I really feel like it lately. I mean, how do you satirize something as ridiculous as the world we live in right now? Especially if you live in the U.S. Fact, or alternative fact, is stranger than fiction!

If you put our current world into a book, no one would believe it! It would be science fiction, or fantasy.

Some days I feel like I live in Mordor, or at least in Isengard. Our political bosses sound like Saurons and Sarumans.

That’s why I became an author. I was fuckin’ pissed off at the state of the planet and the corruption of our governments and the poison in our food, in our air, in the water.

And that’s why I wrote Be a Hobbit, Save the Earth. I had to do something to make a difference in the world., to inspire everyday people, modern Hobbits, to affect positive change in their minds, homes, and Shires.

And many of you helped me to make that book happen.

I ran a Kickstarter, and you contributed so that I wouldn’t starve while writing it. Thank You!

I self-published it over two years ago, and many of you bought it, read it, and have been fans of the book and the Facebook page ever since. Thank you for that, too!

But the book hasn’t been the best seller that it should have been. I didn’t know all the tricks of the trade to get it up the charts. Now I do.

So, I’m asking for your help, once again. Let’s make it an Amazon Best Seller, just like we did for my latest book, The End of Fear Itself!

This Sunday, February 26th, Be a Hobbit, is gonna be FREE for 3 days on Amazon!

Here’s how you can help:

  • Join my Launch Team on FacebookScreen Shot 2017-02-24 at 4.21.36 AM
  • Share, comment, and ‘love’  any posts you see me put up on Facebook about the book.
  • On Sunday, ‘buy’ a copy of the free Kindle version, if you haven’t already. Try it to make sure. (If you don’t have a Kindle, download the free Kindle app, under the photo of the book, ‘Read On Any Device’)
  • Once you’ve purchased and read the book, please LEAVE A REVIEW. Reviews are super important to the ranking of the book. Rankings are crucial to sales. Just a couple sentences (20 words or more) is all you need to write. You can write MORE if you want, of course.
  • Tell everyone you know about the book. On social media, email, phone, in person. That’s it!

With your help we can make the book a best seller. Only with your help is it gonna happen.

I don’t have money to throw at it, like some authors do. All I have are my friends. But my friends are the best there are. Thank you for your support. I’m gonna keep coming back to you in the future. But I think you know, that if you come to me, I’ll be there.

Your friend and fellow hobbit, Steve
