Before next week is over I will be publishing a pamphlet on Amazon called All the Titles You Will Ever Need: A Treasury of Awesome, As-Yet-Unused Titles for Books, Stories, and Genre Series. It is being compiled and edited by my old friend Arabella London.
I’ll probably sell it for $1.25, which is how much Hills Department Store charged in the 80s for 7-inch singles (what we called “45s” because they were played on our turntables at 45 revolutions per minute [RPM], versus the 33 RPM of LPs, and 78 RPM of those heavy, old-timey records my grandma still had a ton of even when I was a teenager).
It will most likely sell 50,000 copies within the first week, which means Arabella and I can split the money and quit our jobs before the year is over.
I’m writing about it on this blog because I don’t want anyone to know about it. We all know that nobody reads this blog, so my secret plans to become financially solvent are safe here.
