WELCOME TO THE BOOKSTORE!

NOTE: THIS WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOR A FEW MONTHS. I’M CURIOUS ABOUT HYBRID AUTHORSHIP AND THE EMERGING FACE OF PUBLISHING, SO I INTEND TO LAUNCH A SMALL PUBLISHING SITE THAT FOCUSES ON MY OWN LESS-COMMERCIAL PROJECTS, EITHER BECAUSE OF SUBJECT MATTER (RELIGIOUS SATIRE IS HARD TO SELL TO THE BIG FIVE) OR BECAUSE OF SIZE (MOST OF THESE BOOKS ARE 60-90 PAGES LONG). SIGN UP ON MY MAILING LIST AND I’LL SEND YOU AN EMAIL THE SECOND WE’RE OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

Here at Whiskey Quaker Books, we strive to publish humor literature for a market that is skeptical about religion–the bad kind–without being opposed to all of it. We do general humor as well, but people seem to like the religion jokes.

FREE INTRO DEAL! David Ellis Dickerson has written a lot of funny thoughtful pieces. To see which of them might appeal to you, we offer a FREE SAMPLER of the catalog to anyone who sends an email to wordboy32310@yahoo.com and asks. It is also automatically sent to anyone who joins our email list, but why get on a mailing list if you’re not sure you’re going to like it? Actually, you should anyway, because it’s a funny mailing list. Dave uses it to share cartoons, silly poems, and other quick entertaining things he’s produced lately. Slightly More Pleasant: that’s our motto, and our mission. It’s what makes our newsletter fun to have around.

 

 

Greeting Card Emergency #83: Canada Day

There simply aren’t enough cards for Canada Day. Now that dearth is one card smaller, if you follow me. (Note: the final joke in this video is a reference to the TV show “Look Around You,” which I learned about from the “Extra Hot Great” podcast, two of whose hosts–Tara Ariano and David T. Cole–are name-checked in this episode. So it all makes sense in context.)

GCE CLASSIC–Greeting Card Emergency #7: Supporting the Troops

Special for Memorial Day, here’s a VERY early GCE from 2009, about what to say to troops who are about to deploy…starring my friend Kristen Rouse, who was then about to deploy. Nowadays she’s a regular commentator on war-related issues (on NPR and in the Times and such places), and she blogs at http://trueboots.wordpress.com/ Thanks for your service, Kristen!

Greeting Card Emergency #80: Can’t Have Sex, Part 2

Sorry for the delay! My car died, so I suddenly had to mail things, buy tickets, make plans, fly from Tallahassee back to Tucson, buy a car, register the car, arrange to receive packages, finish a major side project, and then (big surprise) I got sick. So now, after a week (or so) delay, here is part two of the “Can’t Have Sex” card series — this time for cards FROM a partner who wants to be supportive when their main squeeze is sexually indisposed for a while. Hope these help someone!
