How to Share Your Dreams, or Share Your Dreams

Again, I’d like to thank everybody who has given my novel, Off to Be the Wizard, a try in any of its myriad forms (Kindle (USUK),  Nook, old-school, dead tree form, and as a free sample). I’ve recently uploaded a new version with what I hope are the last two typos corrected. So, Kindle and NOOK users, you can re-download those now if you like. 

And thanks again for using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada).

At least Rick got to keep the monocle!
But is he still wearing his glasses, too??
I think the neighborhood kids are going to start
calling him "five eyes" when they taunt him.

Was destroying Rick's dream the first type of dream or the second type of dream?

Was it both?

Just bought your book. Too bad I've too many books on my TBR list, but I intend to get to it eventually (give it a month or two). Congratulations, anyway :)

Are you hosting your book in Google's and Sony's bookstore as well?

Last two typos? I'm sorry poor naive fool you. I don't believe that there's a single book that's ever been published anywhere that doesn't have at least one more typo in it.

I'm looking forward to getting the book though. I'll have the cash soon. The reviews on this site have been good, and dammit, the amount of enjoyment I've had from reading BI means i probably owe you the money now anyway - even if I don't so much as open the front cover. (Which I will.)

Patrick Stewart and Sting!

Heck, I'd go to that one!

April 4, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLukkai

"That's what Patrick Stewart said. His disapproval was the worst part."
That would be disapproval with such conviction, it really WOULD be the worst thing, wouldn't it? Even if he were only acting his disapproval, it would still feel real enough.

Isn't that actually a dream about the David Lynch "Dune"?

Love your book. Downloaded the sample on my Nook, and after that it was an instant buy. Enjoying it tremendously. Good work, keep it up!

Read 2 pages of the sample of Scott's novel. I'm hooked. May have to buy a Kindle.

Re: concerts. Sinead O'Connor at the Grand Theatre of Venice - fantastic. Not relevant, I'm just showing off.

Any chance of getting the book on Kobo?
I don't want to install another book reader just for one book really (and don't want to get the dead trees shipped across the world), but I was thoroughly enjoying the free sample.

Of course, a plain PDF would work just as well...

Loving the book so far!

1) I would totally go to a concert featuring Patrick Stewart and Sting.
2) Panel 4 For The Win!

April 5, 2013 | Unregistered Commenternboblitz

The second pane would be a great one for anyone trying to explain the concept of Karma, where the net sum comes out to zero. In the dream, Scott offends two people, where offending one should be a source of pride, while offending the other should be a source of shame.

Glad to see that high society in Ric's eyes means the Big Glup all the way. Because anything less would be gauche.

April 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJeremy

Mine showed up yesterday... a week early. Absolutely LOVE it. Way to go Scott.

April 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJeremy

Last 2 typos? That's the best joke on this page! Heheh.

April 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBlaine Moore

As usual, you never fail to disappoint, Scott, btu I must say, panel 4 is my new alltime favorite.

Did he do his famous facepalm?

Apparently, you did not want to destroy his dream before it could become reality.

April 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Hilarious comic, but I'm feeling out of the loop. You mention the tantric yoga poop thing is a dated reference. What's it referencing? The idea of it is hilarious, but I'm guessing your referencing a book or movie or event that I'm not aware of.

April 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

I'm keeping my early Kindle version of "Wizard", no re-download for me. Because eventually it's going to be worth a zillion dollars, like that upside-down biplane stamp. Right?

April 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDerek


Nailed it. I knew there was a connection but as soon as you said something, the theme music started rolling through my head. Now it's stuck in my head. Thanks.

April 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTheMortallyWounded

Super Big Gulp the Cadillac of Big Gulps. Good to see Rick remembering his old dreams.

April 5, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterbigjimsmith

Kobo edition, seconded. Please?

April 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNick

Your book arrived yesterday (Amazon UK) :-) I'll be taking it with me on vacation in a couple of weeks. Not many pictures but maybe the words will be good.

April 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLen

About half-way through the book, I find that I'm a little ashamed of how surprised I am by the quality of your writing.

I'll be expecting more novels. Get to work, please.

But first, maybe this one should have a facebook page to make it easier to promote to my friends.

April 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLee

The book is awesome. I did not want to put it down. I have been reading SciFi and Fantasy stories for 30 years. This book is good. The characters are fresh as well as the story. You have taken similar ingredients and made an enjoyable read.

Well done.

April 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAC

Totally love your book!
Discworld meets The Matrix! ;o)

April 9, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterCarl

Awesome book, Scott... I bought it following a big comment discussion on DRM, which I may or may not understand, since it didn't bother me, and it was difficult to work that day after reading the first couple of pages. Finished it in under a day, very well-written, pretty cool storyline, too. Well done, sir.

Rickie Rich, eh...?
