I'm the author of a farcical protest novel set amid a financial crisis, contemplating self-sabotage by unhinged Wall Street financiers.
Give a copy of a protest novel to one of your local Occupiers to help them while away their time. It is an entertaining farce that has been in the works for several years and concerns the misadventures of a fallen financier, attempting to survive in the economy he and his cronies created.
Appropriately titled Banana Republican Blues, the novel is complete and ready to self-publish, but I have been holding off in an effort to find a real publisher.
Your contribution will cover the cost of printing and shipping one copy of the book. I do not profit from it, except in getting the book out there and into the hands of its target reader. In order to start distribution, I will consider the project done when the first book is sold but, naturally, I would prefer to print and distribute thousands of copies.
Your reward is a copy of the book for yourself and, if the ideas are implemented, a government more responsive to the will of its own people.
The books will be sent to the donors, to read yourself, if you wish, and to give away to an Occupier. Please order as many as you would like.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
