    Don, I know you mentioned before that you proof read many blackjack books. Do you get paid for this or just do it as a favor. Anyway, it is a good way to get a free book.

    I do it as a favor, and probably at least 50 times.

    It's an enormous effort. He used about $100 of red ink doing mine. Rick Blaine tells me there was a ton of red in his. We both saved the marked up manuscripts for posterity.

    Ahem! That's hundreds every quarter! :-) Why just last month, the first quarter payment was $259, and that's before we tacked on another $94 for the BS cards. Yearly revenues on pace to crack $1,000! (And don't you just LOVE it when people accuse me of quoting chapters and pages from the book just to hype sales!!)

    If I had known I could've made that much; I would've stopped selling my body on the street, and Sting wouldn't have written that song Roxanne about me.

    Hell, I stopped going to strip clubs once I figured out that I could look at myself, naked, in the mirror, for nothing.

    A reply from the Island resident:

    "
    So why did you write not one, but two, but three books. Maybe 4th in works? Your readers might want to know. Leaves it open for a lot of speculation. No? I know personally someone who wrote a NY Times bestseller. It was a ton of work, even as a family project. Publishers and proof readers usually don't come cheap? "



    BoSox reply:


    One idea that has a strong consensus "I believe without speculating" is that the island resident has his head screwed on backward. Is there anyone in the community that he has not insulted at one time or another?

    I'm a published author too. I sold a story to Storyteller magazine - now out of business

    got paid too

    they sent me a check for $3.00



    I celebrated by going to 7-11 and got an all beef hot dog and smothered that baby with all the free chili and cheese that I could fit in the container
