LOL, I want to fit this in somewhere.


Sad could work, thanks! I've penciled it in.

I'd have to agree with the "weak" more implied to seeming that the stories are weak. Maybe another one of the 10 adjectives in his vocabulary would work better(I'm not trying to demean, I had to study his character to make a parody, and he has like only 10 adjectives for things.) Tremendous, great, terrific, and wonderful are just a few off the top of my head. If worse comes to worse, he uses a lot of them over and over in his tweets. We can always just double check there.

I have to also add, maybe fate had better intentions in delaying the project. I think the audience has only gotten bigger for it thanks to Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, SNL, Samantha Bee, and "The President's Show" just to name a few. "The President's Show" is a full parody show of the President with his cabinet and advicers. So, it's protected. As a parody anthology and Trump now a world public figure, I think we'll be protected under the first amendment. Presidents have been made parody characters for decades now. It's the American way. ;-) And just like the American way, no one HAS to read it. They can choose to or not to.

Yeah, I think the timing is perfect, too.

The Trump anthology is out! I think our stories should really go viral, they are that good, so please share this and blog about it. Let me know if you need anything. :)

Here's the announcement blog post: http://georgedonnelly.com/trump-anthology-now/

Here's the Amazon page: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077XNNXW3

I emailed my fellow authors just now. If you didn't get the email, let me know at me@georgedonnelly.com.

I'll be rolling it out to InstaFreebie as an exclusive soon, then wide to the other retailers. I'll endeavor to make it permafree at that point.

Thanks! So glad to finally publish this. A real pleasure working with you all. Many thanks to the fine KBoards moderators for their indulgence.

HAZZAH! Way to go George in getting this all up and going. It was a lot of work, and hopefully it's going to entertain lots of people for the Holidays and beyond. Plus, the whole thread just shows how much work goes into creating one of these anthologies. Thank you so much for your effort and organizing skills in putting this together. If we didn't have a head editor at the helm the project, it wouldn't have happened. Thank you for taking it on!

You're very kind, Marilyn, but it wouldn't have happened without your valuable assistance and without your valiant and unflagging efforts to keep me from forgetting about this. Thanks!!

Your welcome. I just wanted to see this project get out there in the end. I had a lot of friends that were wanting to read it, and I could see there was a need. Hopefully, it will give some laughter to people and help them get through their day. That's all any writer could wish.

I'm really happy to finally see this anthology available.

I tweeted and blogged about the anthology today. Unfortunately, I sent out my newsletter only yesterday, so I won't send another today. However, I have one more newsletter coming up before the holidays and the anthology will be mentioned in that one.

We're #76 in sci-fi anthologies. https://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/digital-text/158593011/#4
Just saw it's up to #45 in the sci-fi anthologies now. It's climbing up! Awesome! Great to see this book on the move up.

Anyone know of any blogs that might like to cover this? Or that we could do a giveaway with? Any influencers that might find this attractive? Let me know if you come up with any ideas.

Hi George,

I ran this by Jessica and we'd be willing to feature the anthology at the Speculative Fiction Showcase. I should have everything I need already except for the large version of the cover and a brief excerpt, unless you want me to take an excerpt from my own story.

Well, there is one person with lots of Twitter followers who may be interested in the collection.

I've tried to get his attention in a tweet......

Now that the recruiting and organizational effort for this anthology is complete, we feel the PM system will suffice for further discussion. FYI, if you get into your PM preferences, you can thread your PMs like gmail conversations, with "Reply All" including everyone who received the most recent message. Makes group conversations easy. :)
