The Value of Butt
I'm not opposed to self-publishing, but I'm not personally interested in it for a number of reasons, and I don't think it in its current form will be the new paradigm that replaces the old. I could be wrong. Honestly, I've spent the past three years thinking about the publishing business as little as possible, so I'm not the best source for this stuff. I really signed on to remind people of the Butt Title Game. This may or may not have been invented by greygirlbeast and tjcrowley; I first learned it from them. You simply take the title of absolutely anything and replace one of the words with "butt." To wit, my early ouevre:
The Lazarus Butt
And then there's New Era PZB: The Value of Butt, followed by Butt, Butt, and Soul Butt. (Just doing the novels here; short stories, with their often-longer titles, can provide even more fun. "O Death, Where Is Thy Butt?", anyone?) For a certain kind of person, this never gets old. I'm using it to distract myself from having missed the best parade ever in the history of New Orleans yesterday.
