The Very Revolutionary Ending to a Revolutionary Blog

Posted in Uncategorized on September 29, 2010 by Ryan Shattuck

Fellow revolutionaries:

Yesterday I wrote that I am retiring this blog. I am taking this blog out to pasture, shooting it in the face, and putting it out of its misery. Revolutions for Fun and Profit! will celebrate its 1-year anniversary in October, and I have accomplished everything I wanted to do with both the book and the website.

I also wrote yesterday that I planned a surprise for all the revolutionaries out there, as my way of showing gratitude to the tremendous support I’ve received during the past year.

SURPRISE

Surprise #1: Revolutions for Fun and Profit! is now available to download to your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad from Apple’s iBookstore.

Surprise #2: Revolutions for Fun and Profit! is totally and completely free.

Have you been waiting to buy Revolutions for Fun and Profit! because you’re a cheapskate and don’t like supporting independent local writers? I feel the exact same way. Well good news: you can now read the book that nobody is talking about… on your electronic device for free!

Unfortunately, Apple does not provide hyperlinks to individual books in its iBookstore, so you’ll have to follow these instructions to download your free book:

Step #1: Launch the iBookstore app from your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

Step #2: Once inside the iBookstore, press “search”

Step #3: Do a search for “revolutions for fun and profit.”

Step #4: Press “free” to begin downloading the book.

Step #5: Read the book over and over until you cry. (It won’t take long)

IMPORTANT NOTE

I submitted a perfectly formatted ebook to Apple, and for some reason, their dumb bookstore ‘broke’ the code and changed some of my formatting. I would like you to read a perfectly formatted ebook of Revolutions of Fun and Profit!, as nature intended.

If you would own a perfectly formatted book, simply click the Smashwords logo below to download the free .epub version of Revolutions for Fun and Profit!
You simply drag the .epub book (courtesy of Smashwords.com) into iTunes to read it on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. It’s quite easy.

KINDLE AND AMAZON

Revolutions for Fun and Profit! is also available for the Nook, as a free download as well. You can download the book on Nook by visiting this link. Unfortunately, I don’t own a Nook, so I haven’t the vaguest idea how that works.

Revolutions for Fun and Profit! still is NOT available for the Kindle, because Amazon takes like a billion years to approve ebooks, and they also hate America.

QUESTIONS

If you have any questions about downloading your free copy of Revolutions for Fun and Profit!, do not hesitate to email me at revolutionsforfunandprofit@gmail.com. I promise to respond to your email in a timely manner and/or ignore it completely.

IN CONCLUSION

If enough people download Revolutions for Fun and Profit! from Apple’s iBookstore, then we may be able to knock that pretentious Winnie-the-Pooh off his pretentious perch at the top of the “Top Free” list. He’s been sitting pretty for long enough.

Once again, I want to thank everyone for your support, and for joining me on this year long, revolutionary experiment. Writing and publishing Revolutions for Fun and Profit! was a tremendous adventure, and the support I received from friends, family, and strangers across the internet was overwhelmingly wonderful.

You’re the best revolutionaries a boy could ask for.

Revolutionarily yours,
RYAN SHATTUCK

Happy Revolutionary President’s Day!
