How does it feel to have written a book that's topping the charts?

Think of all that money the editor is getting off of our work.

What's the book about?

The reddit thread about it seemed really enthusiastic about it for some reason. They were doing readings of it and everything.

LOL that we wrote a garbage book and then trolled reddit into making it the top selling book on Lulu

No, but you're a shit lord.

Thx m8
Have a portrait of a hadji for your trouble.

Maybe something could be set up so the next ones sales could go to some charity.
>>
>>7581197
you could put the book on lulu yourself with a better pdf and not make any profit and then yours will be cheaper than his and people will buy yours.

here is a better pdf than the one profitfag is selling

>tfw noone likes your part

>tfw you spent about 20 minutes fiddling with it while stoned and can't remember what parts you ended up contributing

oh well, I'm still going to take credit for it (in my head; I will never ever actually tell anyone about it or otherwise imply that I go on 4chan)

lol. you dumb fucks literally giving some douche money. god damn this board is full of stupid cucks.

Speaking of, what is Ishmael doing with "Pictures of DFW"? Who do we trust anymore?
>>
>>7580868
he said he set the lowest price possible and that he makes about 20cents per copy. The money he does make is going towards cigarettes and booze
>>
>>7581805

you don't trust anyone you dumb fuck. that guy is probably the same fucking guy making money off this one. that's why he was pushing it so quickly after this one is done. anyone who actively participates in that shit is an honest to god moron.
>>
>>7581810
the lowest price possible is 0 cents profit, it's how we sold literally every other book we have made
>>
>>7581810

>he said he set the lowest price possible and that he makes about 20cents per copy. The money he does make is going towards cigarettes and booze

jesus christ. it's worse than i thought.

i took a year hiatus from 4chan after my kid was born and missed this whole shitshow. how the fuck did it work? anyone who submitted was thrown in the book, or was there some sort of actual process to determine contributors?

we worked on it together in a google doc and then spent a couple of months editing it by making suggestions in the google doc and then voting on the suggestions

People here buy it, like they did with Legacy-etc-Tundra, so then they can post pictures of the book in their bookshelves.
Is it a stupid thing to do? Definitely, as it was writing it in the first place, but it's /lit/ so this seems a normal thing to do here.
>>
>>7581821
>>7581831

The editor is the only one who distinguishably put in a day's work into making it printable, and as a result gets to make a couple hundred bucks for his efforts

If it really mattered that some cucker was making 20 cents a copy off this novel, you or someone else would have re-edited it and posted it on lulu. Nobody could free themselves of their laziness to do so, and thus those of us who ordered the book are 20 cents poorer.

he didn't put any work in, he published low quality shit, got called out, waited for someone else to format it for him, published some even worse shit, downloaded some font packs and fixed a few errors, published a product that was STILL subpar and shit and then gave up.
>>
>>7581883
It's not even an original idea. This is the third book in the series.

The original editor reproduced it at a higher quality, but for whatever reason it's not in print. I'm talking about the googledoc in >>7581705

>>7582069
because profitfag got upset and decided hes not updating it ever again after fucking up 3 times in a row

anyone here can upload that pdf themselves to lulu though

not casting stones, i'm here too. but 2000 pages of that pretentious mock-pretentious (ooh, so meta!) drivel? that indicates a problem.

Yep, that worked. Thank you very much.

It's not pretentious in the slightest. It's sincere shitposting for the most part. Not to mention that it's a group effort, so 2000 pages isn't a big deal.

Also here you go.
Uploaded one for today.
Recorded it last night whilst drinking.

Quality is a bit shitter than normal for some reason but I think its worth it since I can't record it again right now (nor get drunk for it).

keep in mind tundra was out before christmas and had an extra year to rack up reviews and ratings
