Pre-Order Lady Chatterley’s Brother

I’ve been talking a lot about Lady Chatterley’s Brother, the first ebook in a new series of long essays that I’m starting. The book will be on sale at all the regular online venues next Monday, Oct 17, but if you would like to pre-order it right now, use the button below. You’ll be charged $2.99–same as anywhere else–but Barrett and I will get to keep a little more of that money, as we won’t be paying our distributors a royalty. When you order, make sure to give me the email address you want the book sent to in the text field!

There are some benefits to pre-ordering:

  • First of all, I’ll be shipping these out over the weekend (first come, first served), so you’ll get yours a little early.
  • I’m also going to send all three file types (PDF, ePub, & MOBI) to people who order this way. So, if you get it through my site you get a little more.
  • And lastly, I’m going to draw the name of one lucky pre-orderer for a box full of books taken right from my shelves. (Alas, my shelves are very full.) These’ll be seriously good books.

And keep in mind, though this is an ebook, this is not limited to people with ereaders

And if you’d like a preview of this ebook before you buy it, you can read about 4,000 of Barrett’s and my 20,000-some words right here.

And here’s the buy button again:

Just to let you know, this is the thing that’s finally tipped my hand into getting an ereader. With this release, there’s now a critical mass of oddball indie stuff I’ve run across that’s not available in print.

I’m officially not spending any money this week, but I’m making an exception for this! Looking forward to it.

Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.
