It's not just a book release, it's an art project.




If you could predict revolutions, they wouldn't happen.
who the hell wants to read that shit? i'd rather watch a movie when a nomadic lion takes over a pride and mates with his new females instead

I think you've been talking about so called famous books in every thread, maybe you should do that when you are actually a #1 seller or get it published.

Because all i hear is

Do you live in a fucking cave or something? Do you have any idea what the majority of people who can afford to reside in White Rock, do or did for a living? Ever heard of Ocean Park? How about Crescent Beach? Yeah, didn't think so.

Get your facts straight kiddo.

Irrelevant. It's like what the above poster says, anyone can live downtown with a steady source of income, especially when OP does not have a car.

I don't get the appeal of this guy. Who wants to spend their whole life just doing drugs and having sex? Does that really give you happiness and satisfaction? In the end you are just a slave to your own selfish desires.

I want to see a sample of this so called work of art. If I can stand to read 5 pages maybe you have a shot at minor success. The thing you need to understand is that the odds are against you. People come up with "ideas" everyday. For every revolution and every guy like Steve Jobs there are thousands, even tens of thousands that fail. I can't predict the next revolution but I'm willing to bet you're not it.

Btw, you creating this thread is like you trying to subtly tell us that your book will make you money. Don't try to deny it.

Just like how you keep going on and on about this random girl you banged on some side street at whatever time.

Are you that desperate for attention or are you trying to impress us or are you just seeking approval?

I don't know where you were getting that I was talking about affordability of downtown. It's relevant because he's trolling you making fun of White Rock, I recall him having nothing but good things to say about living there.

If he used to live in White Rock, that meanins he's obviously aware of Whie Rock housing prices, and affluent neighbourhoods such as Ocean Park, and Crescent beach.

It's said that whenever someone takes out a mortgage on a condo downtown, the unicorn men assemble on the peak of Cathedral Mountain and shed the tears of Atlantis onto the frigid earth.

No need to educate the masses...

All vanilla. Walking around White Rock and there is no art, no fascinating characters, no taste.


Living down here for 4 years and participating in the art scene, having met so many interesting people, I could never go back to White Rock. I would feel suffocated in a world of grey commuter cars and black pea coats.

If you are actually releasing a book and getting it published, good for you and aim high. How many copies are you making? Doesn't appeal to me or make sense to me but neither does Justin Beiber.

No, but art does. Sex, drugs, and women are merely a by-product of being an artist.

Not taking sides.. as I'm a writer myself.

Just out of curiosity. Jason, have you finished any of your manuscripts?

You're saying you have 3 books, but are they complete/edited? Are you going the self-publishing or traditional publishing route? If you're self publishing, you have to do everything from marketing to cover design to barcode registration to copyrighting and so on. It's not an easy task. Thousands of self-published books get released every week, and less than 10% of the total ebooks out there will make enough to pay for your monthly phone bill. If you're hoping for traditional publishing, it has to show in your work that you've put the time and effort into polishing it to the best it can be.

At the risk of sounding self-indulged, I've been writing for 5+ hours a day (including holidays) for the last 5 months. I've only been sleeping ~5 hours a night, and have been editing my manuscript back and forth with my agent for over 2 months now. To this day, I'm still putting in ~5 hours a day to make sure it's ready for publishing.

I'm actually committing myself and doing the work, and consequently, have hefty publishing deals lined up for me to choose from.

You seem to be spending a lot of time researching what car to buy next, and how much money this person or that person makes.

I know it's common for us writers to get ridiculed. But if you actually sit down and write, good things can happen. Like I said a couple pages back, it's not uncommon for novels to get 5 to 6 figure advances. I know a handful of people personally who've made it, but they actually put in their time and effort. Counting your chickens before they hatch is a major no-no.

Good luck.

Art is for fags.

Using Amazon's KDP program for the eBook, and createSpace allows customers that purchase the book to print-on-demand for a small fee. I still get 70% royalties.

eBook price: $9.69
Book price: $12.69 (-4.XX for the printer costs )


I originally made this post because I was thinking, what sort of income would I need to start having more influence on the art and creativity scene in Vancouver/Canada/The World?

#SaveBCFilm people seem to think that there is NO MONEY for film here. If I were making 100k a month, I would be funding projects left and right.

Maybe my ambition will rub off on someone who sits around with a ton of money, and no desire to make an impact on the world other than buying cars and dating gold diggers. Probably not.

Yeah, I have my first novel finished and polished up. I finished it 6 months ago, and I spent the rest of the time polishing up the book, the cover, getting the ISBN, figuring out my pricing, the marketing, getting in shape and coming up with my own style to help market it as well. A book is merely a book without the weight and authenticity of it's message. It's a really globalist look on dating, and far different than what people will expect it to be. It really acknowledges that we're living in a time of MASSIVE shifts in culture and tradition.

I mean, shit, what if I can prove to other authors that my sex tape helps me sell books? Will other authors copy me? Certainly they will if I make a bunch of cash from it.

How insane would it be to live in a world where books are advertised with porn?


The next book is about a chick that wrestles with her sexuality after meeting a beautiful and assertive rebellious woman.
The 3rd book is about, well, a DJ in space, and these lizards looking for music to help an egg hatch... it will be my first novel that doesn't revolve around Vancouver and sex. I have like 10+ other book ideas written down. I know porn will always provide an income to survive on, I just have to master telling interesting stories and the marketing to get them in front of people in the meantime.

A decent amount of money, but if you work at it, someone might notice you.

I'd personally hate to be rich, do drugs and have sex with random women for the rest of my life. It's all if you have that lifestyle when you're in your 20's but when you're over 30, come on.

I'd rather have a enough money were I can live and retire comfortably, have a loving wife and a couple kids. Money and materialistic things don't do much when you're 40+, you wake up in the morning looking like a crack addict from the night before with some aids infested slut lying beside who doesn't care if you're dead or alive, she only cares about getting paid. And money doesn't do shit for you when you're lonely and miserable and the only people left around you are moneygrubbing whores.

Hugh Hefner looks pretty freakin' happy!

Some people are happy praying 5 times a day, working as a humble taxi driver, and living a quiet life.

There isn't one defined path to joy.

Does anyone know who that rapper guy is on Granville? The dude who raps in public during the summer?

I've seen people jeer him and tell him to shut up, and I love the way he adds it into his raps. He's getting better, too.

I bet that guy has so many people telling him to "get a real job" and to "get an education."

I donate cash to him whenever I can, those hustlers are the lifeblood of art.

I've seen a few good street level performers, don't see why so many people discourage them, it's pathetic really.
