Why would I give away my bestseller for FREE? I want to introduce readers to my hero, Dalton James. In the event that it’s your cup of tea, then I have several more books in the series(eleven, to be exact) for you to buy. I’d love to get you hooked on the series and feed this powerful need of mine to eat. That said, if you give it a try and it’s not for you, it cost you absolutely nothing to give it a whirl.

IS IT WORTH YOUR MONEY?
I admit it. I’m a professional wrestling fan. Usually when I pony up that confession, people begin this huge spill on how professional wrestling isn’t real. Wrong. Professional wrestling may be scripted, but it’s certainly not fake.
Is the WWE Network worth the price of admission($9.99)? Yes, it absolutely is. I was skeptical at first. I thought that there was some underlying small print. Maybe I was locked into a year of commitment or the price bumped up a little more each month, but no. It has remained $9.99 and truthfully, I use the service more than I do Netflix. Last night, my daughter and I watched John Cena whip some tail and even though her favorite(The Bella Twins) lost, it’s bound to happen sometimes. Right?
The truth of the matter is, if you’re asking the question – you’re already fan enough to enjoy everything that comes packaged for the $9.99 price point. There are podcast shows, original programming and, of course, lots and lots of wrestling. I can watch the great matches of the early 80’s all the way up to PPV events which are monthly and usually cost $50+. I’ve seen major media outlets say the model won’t work for $9.99, but I disagree. The WWE Network is everything that other sports networks should be. For a long time I’ve believed that the future of television will be internet streamed, and the WWE Network is the first service that impresses me. Yes, I’m also a fan of Netflix and it’s well worth the money, but the WWE Network streams with better quality.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a hardcore wrestling fan, casual fan or absolutely new to the sport. You simply cannot beat the content for $9.99 and, if you’re a new subscriber, the first month is free. You’ll quickly learn a lot about the hell these athletes have to go through to entertain you. I suggest Legends’ House, Total Divas and, of course, the monthly PPV events.
Don’t miss my PS4 vs. Xbox One review!
So, I usually blog to try and sell my books, though every now and then I cover a subject that just doesn’t make sense to me. And trust me, there are plenty in the world that we live in. Today, I’ve chosen to cover self-checkout lines because the idea of a self-checkout line is just ludicrous to me.
When I shop, the items I am buying are marked up enough to cover the store’s overhead costs. This includes labor. In other words, I am paying you to sell me the item, scan it, take my money and bag it for me. How the self-checkout idea was pitched, and worse, sold to the public as acceptable is downright laughable. I can see the board room meeting now.
“We’re going to create kiosks where customers can pay us, then do 2/3 of the work themselves.”
“But it’s faster.” you say. Well, if that’s the case, you’re shopping at the wrong store. Not only are they slow when it comes to checking you out and taking your money, but they’ve thrown the issue into your lap now. Isn’t that nice? Have we not learned as a society that large corporations aren’t famous for treating us with respect? Ever notice these fancy price-scanning machines hanging in your local discount store. Great idea, right? Wrong! It has opened the door for these discount stores to quit pricing shit! The very first time I stood in front of a Redbox in the rain, I understood that we’re shooting ourselves in the foot. Some things should involve actual humans and I sure do miss standing in the local video store browsing through movies. But I digress.
Isn’t it time to start holding companies accountable? Fix your service or lose me as a customer! My local DMV now charges $5 to walk in the office and pay taxes on my vehicle. How silly is that? The DMV is charging me $5 to pay them money. Seriously. Is this the world we are living in now? Sadly, yes it is. People have become lazier than ever and that feeds into the greed of Corporate America.
I’ve had it with commercials that are tailored for me, only to call and speak to someone who I can’t communicate with due to a language barrier. What do I plan to do about it? We all have a vote and it’s in the form of our money. You see, I’ve been using the self-checkout line for a while now. But I affectionately call it Amazon.com. You should try it sometime.
It is with great excitement that I’m announcing plans to begin work on a series of books called Monster Cops, based on the popular web series by director Patrick A. Prejusa. Currently, there is a feature film(Monster Cops: The Midnight Special) available for purchase, as well as several free episodes on the web. As I finish up the latest Gunship installment, Patrick and I are working together on bringing Monster Cops back from the dead, so to speak, and potentially launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund a second feature film. But for now, Monster Cops is certainly coming in the form of paper storytelling.
I’ll be releasing more details as the project moves along. Until then, here’s an official trailer:
