Okay so I'm kinda maybe promoting a book. I won't tell you which one; I couldn't possibly. I won't provide a link to the book. If I could be bothered I might provide a picture, but I won't. And as for a blurb? What the hell is that? I should sell a million!

What do Adolf Hitler, Mahatma Gandhi, and Ed Sullivan have in common? Ottavio Canestrelli crossed paths with each. He performed with the Krone Circus in Italy and Germany from 1922-1924 on the eve of Hitler's rise to power; he witnessed a rally for Mahatma Gandhi in India in 1931; and he appeared twice on the Ed Sullivan Show in New York City during the 1960s.
In The Grand Gypsy, Canestrelli, with his grandson, Ottavio Gesmundo, tells the story of a man who witnessed historical events as he toured with his family through five continents and countless nations, including experiences fighting in World War I and the excavation of the Sphinx in Egypt. It shares memories of life in the circus, filled with daring feats and tragic mishaps.
With more than one hundred and seventy historical photographs included, this memoir chronicles a circus dynasty from the late nineteenth-century in Europe to the new millennium in the United States.Read more...

Animals, Monsters, or People?
The ‘simple’ line between our reality when awake and our nightmares when asleep can be very thin. In our fiction we are the innocent victims of monsters intent upon taking everything from us, including our lives.
In a world where corporations and governments work together to find ‘new frontiers’ to strip for a profit, who decides if a creature from another world is an animal, a monster, or a person?
What happens when we are the monsters another species has very good reason to fear?

A little history...
I have produced 3 ebooks.
1) Linux Mint 17 - Full and Painless Migration for Anyone
2) Linux Mint 17 - Abandon Microsoft Today - Super Edition
3) Linux Mint 18 - The Ultimate Cold Turkey Survival Guide
The 1st ebook is no longer available. It was released on my personal website with an asking price of $5, but was freely downloadable. Out of the 1450 people who downloaded my first ebook only about 10 people paid the requested $5 fee. This was very disappointing. I did not publish it with a major publisher because Amazon.com was the only method I knew about and their fees made it impossible to publish a fully illustrated tech book without going broke. Eventually I discovered lulu.com and was able to make a profit.
After discovering lulu.com I published what I thought was the 1st ebook. To my surprise I had uploaded the 2nd ebook which was not supposed to see the light of day. I had shelved that book in favor of the 3rd book. However, several copies sold very fast so I couldn't exactly take it back which is why the 2nd ebook is still for sale.
The 1st ebook is no longer available and is not updated or needed. Buy the 2nd ebook, it has everything the 1st ebook had and tons more.
