Adding insult to injury, one of my publishers, CCS Publishing Company of Lima, Ohio, has written to say they are going digital or something and cleaning out their warehouse of inventory.
While these and other titles will not be "out of print" - as if anyone cares - and available til the parousia, there are several copies of God's Top Ten List (420) and Golf in the Real Kingdom (40) on the shelves and being offered to me - the author - for $.99 a copy. That's even lower than you can get 'em at www.amazon.com; though I Just Wanna Ride seems to have risen to "cult" classic on a few websites and is begging another publisher to do what the former did not aka market it.
If I weren't paying off cars for two sons while saving up for a truck with a projected purchase date of 2037 or about 10 years before I retire, I'd buy 'em all for egotistical reasons.
I mean, really, aside from guys like me who stock their studies to impress people, can you imagine how impressive it is to stock shelves with books that you've written?
Anyway, if you'd like any or all of 'em, call Charles Spar at 419-516-0348 and say, "The author, Bobby Kopp, is a friend of mine and wrote that non-best-selling___that is being sold out and off your shelves and I'd like to order___ copies."
From what I've been told, God's Top Ten List, a contemporary exposition of the Decalogue aka Ten Commandments, has been used by adult and young adult Sunday School classes and study groups and cellular groups and sparked... Of course, noting Judge Roy Moore, Al Franken, and Hillary's husband and their apologists, this book may not be that fashionable anymore. As you know, the Decalogue isn't really a part of our culture since...
Golf in the Real Kingdom, dedicated to my dad, is a book about, uh, golf; actually, it's a metaphor for discipleship with golf as the vehicle. Golfers like it. That's what I've been told.
So there ya go.
Some cheap Christmas gifts.
BTW, just so ya know, I won't get $.01 for any sales.
That's why I haven't ordered that truck or even more Cubans lately.
I'm still holding out for the repackaging of I Just Wanna Ride or my favorite local publisher putting those Bible scratchings into a book form to keep the paper afloat and feed my 150 dream.
Note from CSS: "This is a limited time offer that will expire 30 days after the date of this letter" (DOL: 11/13/17).
So unlike folks who think it's rude to be on time for worship, call today or enable my continuing humiliation of trailing the toothy guy from Texas in book sales by about a trillion to one.
Blessings and Love!
Shatter the sound of silence!
Wake up! Look up! Stand up! Speak up! Act up for Jesus!
Salt! Shine! Leavenate!
