Jim Spencer's Bad Birds 2

Post by Jim Spencer » July 28th, 2020, 7:01 pm

Hey, y'all, I'm finishing up production work on Bad Birds 2, the sequel to the original Bad Birds that was published in 2010. A complete description and ordering information is in a post I just made in the Classifieds forum. Go over there and read about it, and then get out your checkbooks. You wouldn't believe how dang expensive it is to make a book happen.

I'd appreciate all the pre-orders I can get. Thanks for your consideration.

Maybe spice it up a bit to get the comments started,

something like---- would a strutter robot decoy still function and be able drive thru a chufa patch if it got shot with a load of TSS?


I'll be placing an order and looking forward to reading your new book.
I would also get it on audio CD's if you ever would offer it that way

I did. Matter of fact, you're getting copy 1 of 1,000. (Of course, everybody else who buys a copy is, too, since they ain't numbered and I can put anything in the inscription I want to.)

Crow, something like that strutter robot decoy thing might be a good idea, but I think a raffle might be a better one. So how 'bout this:

ANNOUNCING THE FIRST AND ONLY BB2 RAFFLE!!!!!
Only $20 per ticket, and you're guaranteed to win a book!!!!!

Regarding the audio CD thing: With my hillbilly hick voice, I'd be lucky to sell a dozen copies.

Putting it on an audio CD seems like it would take a long time, especially if you sold very many.

You don't have to record them 1 at a time, all you would have to do is sit in the center of a room with good acoustics and put like 10 tape recorders all around you, problem solved.

Well I'm a gambling man so I'll take you up on the raffle option.


As far as your accent, there is always DVD's with the subtitle feature.

I'll take it under advisement, Crow. No fooling, I'm a pretty smart guy but I damn sure don't sound like it. I make Tom Kelly sound like William F. Buckley.

Don't hold your breath, though. I'm going to be out about 9 grand by the time BB2 is finished, and so far I've taken in about $500. Right now, the arithmetic ain't working so hot.

Yeah those numbers would make me a little nervous,
but like Colonel Tom said you won't have to ever shop for Christmas presents again.

I have several of the Tom Kelly books on audio and enjoy listening to them on hunting trips, He's one of the rare few who make it seem like your sitting around a campfire listening to someone tell a story.

All the best to you with your new book

I'm getting a few book orders from folks here on GN. Thanks very much to those of you who have ordered. Still lots of room in my post office box, though...
