I Want to Be a Paperback Writer... Paperback Wriiiii-ter!!
September 3, 2010  | By David Bianculli
 
Bianculli-Smothers-paperbac.jpgDear Sir or Madam, will you read my book? It took me years to write. Will you take a look?...

Yes, my Dangerously Funny: The Uncensored Story of 'The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour' is coming out in paperback -- later this month, with a cool new cover, and, naturally, a lower price. For a sneak peek of the new cover, and (if you want) to pre-order, details follow...

The paperback, by the Touchstone division of Simon & Schuster Inc., will drop (if booksellers aren't careful) Sept. 28, at a retail price of $16.00. You can pre-order it now, and pay a lot less, by pre-ordering HERE.

And if you do, I probably get more from the modest Amazon kickback than I do from royalties.

It's basically the same book, except the front and back covers are redesigned, the first few pages are a collection of positive reviews, and -- the part that I'm really excited about -- restored, at the end of the book, is a section that was removed from the original for space considerations: my chapter-by-chapter detailed notes, citing where, and from whom, I got everything in my 14 years of research.

So here it is -- again. Buy one for a friend, if you can. I need all the friends you can get.

If you must return it, you can send it here -- but I need a break, and I want to be a paperback writer.

Paperback wriiiiiii-ter!!!!

GREAT cover! And what a great read this book is. I treasure my signed copy (almost as much as my Cole Hamels-signed baseball cap). Way to go, slugger!

Does the phrase "shameless self-promotion" mean anything to you?

Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?
