I tried to talk him out of posting it, honestly, because dammit, I think the book is sellable. It’s smart, funny fantasy–serious fantasy that has the benefit of having a smart-ass protag who will make you laugh throughout the book. Darkside gave me, hands down, more giggles, chuckles, snorts, and belly laughs than any other book I’ve ever read–and check my bio to see the big comedic names I’ve edited.
Steve has a Paypal link set up for those feeling generous, and I went over and donated $10–that’s maybe a dime for every chuckle I got from the one-liners his protag lobs throughout the book, and that’s one amazing deal.
Go read the book. Enjoy. Laugh. If you like the novel, donate.
What’s a laugh worth to you?
