Yes, that’s right. Bob Hammond here once again. You all know me as a bestselling author with a larger-than-life personality. That’s right. My reputation precedes me.
That’s why I have to say, while these folks here at Undies Unlimited sure do have their hearts in the right places, I finally have to put my foot down. On them. You see, being an “Indie” doesn’t mean it’s okay to sit around in your underwear writing. No sir. Writing should be done whilst wearing a suit and a tie. We’re professionals, you know.
So, I have decided to start my own web site to champion and pioneer the way for you little Indies. That’s right. I shall call it Indies, Limited, because there will be a dress code. Let’s class the joint up a little, shall we?
And to kick off the launch of this new site – which is typographically error-free, by the way – I’m pleased to announce the release of the first new book published under the Indies, Limited label! Yes, that’s right, I actually used an exclamation point. Because you need this.
Since I have published eleventy million books, you little Indies may have quite a conundrum on your hands trying to figure out which ones are best for you. Since they’re all so incredibly good, of course. So, to make it easy for you, Indies, Limited and I have put together a smorgasbord wrapped in a buffet pushed on a dim sum cart just for you. It contains the chapter ones of all my books, at one low, low price. We’re calling it Eleventy-Million Chapter Ones. That’s right. Each chapter one has a purchase link at the end of it so you can buy the book that pleases you the most. Ah, the brilliance of that idea. I bet the Undies people here wish they’d thought of it.
So hurry on over to my pioneering new website, Indies, Limited. But make sure you’re wearing a tie. We can’t be having ruffians running about in their underwear. You’re welcome.
Scammers and predatory publishers cost unsuspecting authors millions of dollars a year. You pay good money up front and a lot of it. In return, you receive nothing but heartache and more invoices. If you let them, these vultures will take you for every dime you have and then some. And then, to top it off, they put out a really crummy product. There has got to be a better way.

If Mistakes Could Fly, You’d Be a Superhero
by Kenyon Ledford
Genre: Parody Flash Fiction Collection
Word count: 8,500
The city is crying out for help. Private Eye Jonny Gonzo and Police Sergeant Joe Bidwell have arrived to help. Okay, so now the city is crying out for a superhero, instead. Up, up, and away, Money Man is on the way! Geez, people wonder why there is so much urban flight. This book of screwball flash fiction crime tales begins in an American urban sprawl, and culminates with a wild shootout of a fan-fiction epic involving a bizarro side of Batman and Robin, and taking place in the wild lands of Tasman, Australia.

Are you sick and tired of people ripping off your great ideas and making millions from something you thought of first? If, like hundreds of other people, you are constantly plagued with great ideas, breakthrough thinking, and inspired vision, this book is for you!
It may be impossible to keep people from stealing your ideas, but there is a way to make sure they suffer when they do: have bad ideas instead of good ones. With the multi-billion dollar awards given out by juries in civil cases these days, it just takes one bad idea for karma to come a knockin’.
Of course, you specialize in good ideas. You don’t know where to even begin looking for bad ideas. If only there were some ready-to-use resource. International mega-superstar author Bob Hammond comes to the rescue once again with his latest book, 1001 Bad Ideas.
Skeptical? Let’s have a peek:

#157 Adult Incontinence Product with Voice Chip: Wearers of adult incontinence products no longer need fear the risk of infection and embarrassing odors from forgetting to change their garment. Now, with voice-chip technology, whether you’re lounging around the house, playing shuffleboard with friends, or sitting in church, a loud synthetic voice will remind you it is time to change your incontinence product!
#206 Quicksand Kitty Litter: Despite what most kitty litter products claim, they do not get rid of litterbox odors. The only way to eliminate cat odors is to eliminate the cat. Quicksand Kitty Litter: Buh-bye, Puff!
#819 Extreme Adventure Cruise Titanic Reenactment: You’ve seen the movie, but are you ready to live the adventure? Combine fine dining with the adrenaline rush of near-certain death in the icy North Atlantic waters as we actually ram our ship into a giant iceberg! This is an adventure vacation you’re sure to remember if you survive!
