The Cult of Conspicous Consumption - now on sale

Okay. Big scary thing is now done.

I've ePublished my novel,The Cult of Conspicuous Consumption, on Smashwords, and under the pseudonym "Jen Deben".

And ooh, look! I figured out how to embed my promo (still no sound, sorry):

By the way, if you want to share this Flash game with others (and naturally I would love it if you did), just copy-and-paste the text below into your website or blog:
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase=",0,0,0" id="CofCC_Promo" align="middle" height="500" width="600"><param name="movie" value=""><param name="quality" value="high"><param name="base" value="."><embed src="" quality="high" name="CofCC_Promo" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" base="." align="middle" height="500" width="600"></embed></object>

Finally, just so nobody feels awkward, I firmly believe you should only buy a book if it appeals to you and never out of guilt because that book happens to be written by your internet buddy.

In other words, it's totally fine with me if this sort of novel isn't your cup of tea. You don't have to pretend otherwise; I promise I still like you!

I mean, heck, this is a novel I would emphatically tell my mother not to buy because my mom doesn't appreciate bloodthirsty, cynical books, and oooooh my, yes--this is one such a novel. So it would hardly be sporting for me to strong-arm anyone else into it, would it?

I do hope, however, that you'll all at least take a look at the novel's blurb and free sample and consider it.

Oh, and play the Flash game lots while making "Rawr! Rawr!" noises. :-)
