Lindsay’s Book Preorder! “I Stepped in Troll Furphy”

Lindsay’s book “I Stepped in Troll Furphy” is going on sale very soon here! She is launching her Pre-order now. We will get it for Pre-order on Amazon tomorrow. She has just been selling the paperbacks so far and ran out. She’s doing her 2nd printing and decided to sell it on here and other book websites soon. I’m glad. A lot of people have been asking me about her book. It’s a lot longer than my book. I think it’s hilarious. She has a way with words that’s for sure and I’m glad that I’m not the entire subject, I’m just in a chapter or 3.

If you want to Pre-order her book you can go here now:

I hope that works. The books will start to be sent out in a few weeks. She’s using the same company that I used to process. They did a great job for me and they are pretty fast. Her book is going to cost $14.99 initially and she will lower the price in a few months or never. She hasn’t decided.

It really is a funny book. Several of our friends that have read it said she should write more. I’m happy to see her finally doing something with it instead of emailing me how many books she sold at her marijuana store events Lol I guess it’s got a slight drug, marijuana drug cartel following? I don’t know who her friends are but she’s doing well with book sales.

I just got Talon back to sleep and remembered I told her I would post this. I’m going back to bed now guys! Goodnight!

My Book Publisher SUCKS *SS!

Next Press Publishing is a very unprofessional, incompetent, sharky, f-bomb company to work for. I was summoned to Los Angeles a few years back to discuss the possibility of a book. I had so much material and info they thought it was a story the world needed to hear. They came to me. I didn’t go to them until they asked for a meeting. Lindsay and I went out there, we sat down and listened to their pitch. They handed me a contract and told me to take it to my lawyers. Lindsay told me to not do it. Then she told me to do it. Then she told me not to do it. Finally she said f-it just do it. She wanted this whole thing to just go away as soon as it came out. Now she wants it to last forever because she wants all of Meri’s lies to be exposed. The funny thing is I didn’t ever have to write a book for that to happen, Meri has been caught in several lies on her own tv show. Why do you think her husband wants nothing to do with her now. They are living a platonic existence. That’s on them. They fell out of love about 12 years before I came around. While they were still living in Wyoming. They have tried to make it work but it just doesn’t. He’s a douchebag and she’s an attention whore that plays victim. Neither one of them take responsibility on anything. They use the tv to live and push a lie onto America that they are a “normal” family when everyone knows that’s a load of bs Lol There is nothing at all normal about sharing a husband with 3 other women. It’s degrading, it’s only purpose is to have multiple sex partners and they hide behind the religious practices that NONE of them follow. It’s just a big orgy on separate nights and the only one benefiting from it is the Douchebag. I guess I mean the one wearing the panties Lol Hey, he says it about himself on Twitter. Kind of makes me wonder if that’s his deal. He likes to wear panties.

Moving on…

So the publisher is a bunch of morons that don’t know the first thing about publishing a book. We fought about every single thing. I was blasted on email daily for about 7 months straight. Always wanting more from me. Never wanting to actually pay me what my book was making and I honestly don’t even know how much they embezzled from me. That’s something I’m checking into.

What I do know is that my books sold, A LOT. Yes the book does slow down after time. All of them do but no it hasn’t fizzled out. As long as that godforsaken show is still on your tv, my books are still selling about 500 to 900 books a month. Yes those are real numbers. I’m doing well mostly in Europe and Australia right now. I think they put the show on different times of the year for different continents or something. Either way I always know when things shift or end because my comment section blows up with people asking me questions that I’ve answered already months before.

If you are an author DO NOT WORK WITH NEXT PRESS PUBLISHING! Just don’t do it.

That being said I have finally changed my book prices to what I feel is a good value for all. I no longer have to share any of my profits with anyone. This means more money will be going to the 2 charities my books support. I still haven’t seen a dime from either book. I make my money from this blog doing the Ads and the clickbait advertising. Thank you all for coming here, reading my pages and clicking away. The more you click on here, the more money I get. So please, click, click, clickity click away!

The beauty of my blog has always been once you start reading it you keep going post by post until you have spent several hours here without realizing it. I have all of my proof right here. My story has never changed. And thanks to the moron trolls, they continue to send folks my way Lol Because of all of their efforts to defame me, they have actually given me 2 years of free advertising work and helped me sell books like crazy. That’s the upside of being harassed online. It makes people wonder who the f I am. I’m Samuel, married dad of twins. Yes I’m the guy that had a real affair with Meri Brown from Sister Wives. No she will NEVER TELL THE TRUTH about us because she can’t. God will handle that for her. And yes I am good-looking, rich, successful, and happy with my life.

Thanks for checking in on me again. I love ya’ll very much. Enjoy my books if you buy them. I worked hard on both of them and had very little help. I’m just glad that part of my life is over. My story is here. I’m here. And neither of us are going anywhere 😉

It’s in the book(s)

I had my book signing. That was interesting. My team Lol of publisher people showed up and immediately started telling me what to say this time. I just laughed. I said why don’t you guys sit at the table and I will stand behind you signing books and taking photos. You can answer questions. It felt like they were over my shoulder the whole time, which 2 of them actually were. I was told after the event that they had instructions to “wrangle me in” Lol

The wrangling didn’t go very well because when people began asking me the usual set of questions I was honest. It’s obvious I have moved on. It’s obvious I have limited communications with my past partner in crime. She’s the one still hung up on me. Why else does she continue to film things about our affair? The new season still touches on it because she is obsessed, not me. She is about one more episode away from a lawsuit at this point. We’ve been waiting for all of it to come out on tv so I can use every minute of it as evidence for when I sue all of them. We really thought last season would be the end of it but Lindsay’s friends that work on that show have emailed her and said my storyline is ongoing. She really needs to give up. It’s going to sink that show. No one cares about me anymore. The fans of that show definitely are tired of her whining about me. Move on, all of you.

I signed books for 2 hours. We sold 61 books in total. People actually bought Almost Defame’ed Lol I think that’s hilarious. The new version of it is not yet on Amazon but it is available on Paypal and it details a lot more of what happened to me after all of this mess went public. I need to have them add it to Amazon and Itunes soon. My fans were nice. They usually are. They only want to know what Meri is really like, if we still talk, and if I’m still in love with her. I point to my black titanium wedding band and say no I’m now happily married. It surprises me some people don’t know I’m married now. I had a few requests to see photos of my twins. Not happening. And I did have one lady ask for me to shoot a quick video saying hi, my name is, I’m here in Chicago with, her name is. I guess she was filming it for some of her friends. She said she wanted to put it on Facebook so people would see I’m real. There are a lot of those photos or videos of me now all over Facebook. It’s pretty funny to see myself when we get the links. It’s also a little creepy.

I’m not a celebrity. I have never wanted to be. That’s why I don’t do many interviews and you never see my name in any tabloid talking to them. First of all tabloids are complete trash. They are full of shit. 98% of what they say is total bs. They literally  make shit up. I always knew tabloids were false but I had no idea how vicious, manipulative, and inaccurate they were until my name ended up in 12 or 13 of them. Tabloids lie. All of my internet trolls that harass me actually believe whatever the tabloids say. To me that just shows how completely stupid these women really are. They fling the tabloid articles around like they are bible verses and use it to prove something to themselves. It’s all lies. One of the other wives even came out and said so a few times now. All of the tabloids are full of beans. If you buy that trash you are buying it because you somewhat believe in the things those articles say and that makes you stupid and insane Lol Don’t buy that junk. It’s not real. It’s all bs.

At the book signing one lady brought in a tabloid magazine. The one with a photo of a guy with a soccer ball. She said this doesn’t look like you. Well because that’s not me at all Lol I had made a blog post referencing the movie Castaway with Tom Hanks and Wilson the soccer ball. When I was googling the Featured Image for the article header I googled guy with a soccer ball. And there he was. So I grabbed the image and stuffed it in there and the tabloids and blog started using that photo as a photo of me Lol That’s how stupid these people really are. Not that the guy was ugly. I’m sure whoever he is, he’s a nice guy. But I have since yanked down that blog post because I had written about some other things I no longer wanted to share, yet no one else yanks down that photo. She handed me her print out of the article and said is this you? I laughed and explained it to her and she rolled her eyes and said “These online blogs make stories up, don’t they?” Yes. That’s why I do not talk to them. That’s why Lindsay does not talk to them. They are full of shit. She turned out to be really nice and was one of the few that stayed behind to talk to me more. After the event was over with I had a small crowd of maybe 15 people waiting to ask me more questions. I stood up and they all got wide-eyed. I guess they didn’t see me walk in or something. One of the gay guys said I’m a lot taller than he thought and asked to take a photo with me. Most of the photos the people are let around my table and they lean into me to take one. Or two. Or video. So I’m not standing for those. It makes the line go quicker. There I was towering over my fans and everyone asking me about the affair. How did it start, who pursued who? It’s all in the book. Go read it. And she pursued me. That’s all documented with proof, in the book. And on here too. You guys already know that.

My wife came down at 7 to pick on me. She kissed my cheek and whispered hurry home then left me grinning. A few people asked who that was and I said that’s my wife. She didn’t stay she just wanted to make sure I was okay. She also said she’s territorial of me because this book is all about my affair and wants people to realize that I’m married now and  I have moved on. She usually makes a quick appearance if she can. She has been at a few of my book signings so far. And she will be coming with me to New York City this weekend.

I have 2 more signings to go then 2 more next week in the suburbs of Chicago. After that I get a few months break from all of this mess. Then I have to do a few more and I will be done. My contract with my publisher for appearances and promotional stuff will finally be up. I’m still connected with them for ordering reprints of my book and everything else. But I will no longer be obligated to do appearances. I never wanted to do them anyway. I told them there are some very nasty people out there that try to do me harm. I don’t want to be sitting at a table unable to defend myself from anything they might do to me. So far only a few times has someone been asked to go. I always request someone from the store stand nearby so I have a witness. All of the stores also have video recordings so if something bad did happen we would have it on tape.

My publisher took photos and made me do 2 videos during the event to help promote my New York city things. They filmed it right in the middle of me signing books. It was very weird. I didn’t like it and as soon as they got 2 I said that’s enough. They really are good at their jobs, I just don’t want any part of this whole thing. And they are on me about having my kids at the events. No way. I really don’t need to prove anything to anyone. Me showing up is proof enough that I’m real and I’m not the one that has lied here. People always are so shocked it’s really me. Yes I really do talk with a Texas accent. I grew up there. Of course I still have my accent. Yes I really am this tall. Yes Meri has lied to all of you. She doesn’t want to take responsibility for having an affair. She is afraid of her douchebag ex-husband. She has said so on the show. She will do anything to not make him mad at her. Why is that? Because he is mean and yells at her. All of these things are finally coming out and it does feel good when people say to me I’m so glad you are real. I also laugh when they say they wished Meri would have left with me. Well that was the plan but as I’m sitting here right now it worked out a lot better for me. I love my wife. I love my boys and neither one of them would have come into my life if I was still with Meri. It just wouldn’t have happened.

If you came to see me, Hello! It was nice to meet you. I have a lot of comments about my book signing that I have read and deleted. Thanks for the well wishes. Thanks to those that emailed me photos of yourselves with me. I appreciate the support and you buying my books.

I need to get going around here. I think I hear my boys awake and it’s almost time to wake up my wife. We will be in New York City this weekend so I won’t be able to update until Monday. I hope everyone has a great Thursday and I will update more soon! Love ya’ll!

I need a babysitter?

Tonight after work I will be at a book signing event. My publisher who I don’t get along with (At all) requires me by contract to do a certain amount of appearances. That contract is up in October of this year. Thankfully I do the minimum required by me because I told them from Day 1, No book signings. They force me via this contract. I didn’t think anyone would show up. I also didn’t want to hear the negative comments but so far things have been okay.

Sitting at a table for 2 hours signing books to people is not my idea of a fun-filled evening. I only have to do 6 more of these and then I’m done. I will do 3 this month, this one tonight then 2 more in New York City this weekend. Tonight’s book signing is in Downtown Chicago. At least that will be closer to home.

My publisher is sending out my Editor (Yes I really had one Lol) 2 people from sales and marketing and 1 assistant. So that’s me and 4 others who will stand behind me, answering any question that I defer to them and will be there to basically make sure I’m actually trying to sell both books. There’s no reason to do a book signing for my book Almost Defame’ed so it just sits on the table with the others and if people buy it, okay.

My publisher and I have fought over the pricing, the pages, the lousy editing, the sheer contempt I have for this whole process and the constant telling me how to sell my books. That’s their job. My job is to just show up at these events, smile and take pictures with the people who ask for that and oh, try to behave. I tend to get bored and start poking fun at myself and the book. That’s not a good sales pitch. That’s why I’m being watched tonight. They want to make the most amount of money they can. I don’t see how much more they can get. We have sold more books than they ordered. We have done 2 reprints at this point. I do nothing to advertise it Lol I also have tried to remove it from certain book websites that I don’t like. I basically have been an anti-author in my own book adventure. They are preparing me for New York because the book signings there will be a much bigger deal.

As we all know, I am not a writer. Technically all I am is a blogger. I share what I want about my life, my thoughts, and the things going on with my boys. That’s pretty much it. You all get the surface stuff that I share. You really aren’t getting any in-depth look into what my life is really like. I go to work, I come home and take over caring for my children. That’s what parents do. Yes I have nannies that help but if I am home, those boys are my full responsibility. Without their help I would have to quit working. I don’t want to quit working yet. I will at the end of this year because I have another plan for myself. Something with a lot more flexibility. Something that I can be there for my boys and really watch them grow up. I travel too much now, I miss some huge moments because I’m stuck at the office. I don’t want to be that kind of dad. They are young enough now they won’t ever remember me not being there for them. My wife is happier because when I am home I get the boys to bed and still do work emails. It drives her nuts. My time demands are only getting worse. I just want to hang out and enjoy life. Have fun. I think that’s the dream for everyone. I have enough financial stability to last us 10 lifetimes if not more. We are okay. I can afford to retire early. I can provide for my wife and children and still feed my dog. That’s all that matters.

These ridiculous book signings are not my idea. I have to do them. And after next week I’m halfway done with the last ones. If you come to the event, the publisher is giving away some really high dollar prizes. A smart tv, some Kindles, the new Apple Iphone and I think some other smaller prizes. It’s from 6pm until 8pm. If you are my Approved list you already got the email yesterday announcing where it’s at. See some of you there. I like knowing who is coming. I can’t wait to meet some of you. No my babies will not be there. My wife said she might stop in just to pick on me Lol Thanks for the support, sweetheart!

It should be a fun evening. Oh and buy my books! There. I advertised. Unlike my publisher, every penny I make on my book sales goes to two charities that support polygamous people or people wanting to leave polygamy. I don’t get any money at all from my book sales. I don’t want it. To me I didn’t earn it I just lived it. And what I went through isn’t worth anything.

I hope everyone has a great day. Go out there and support book signing authors. It’s not easy sitting in front of a crowd trying to spend a few seconds with people you don’t know Lol It’s actually very weird.

Book prices have changed

After much debate and being hung up twice by my publisher, Next Press Publishing based in NYC, I have changed my book prices to what I feel comfortable with. They had upped the prices of my books to $9.99 and $20. That was bs. My book is not worth that much Lol

I have updated both of my books with more pages and more info. The new prices are $7 for ebook/kindle version and $14 for paperback. The paperbacks are now being printed through Amazon’s beta KDP print shop. I am blessed to among one of the beta customers using the program. I am assured after the beta trial period is over the printing prices will go down. This means I can adjust my paperback book prices in a few months to make it cheaper.

Again ALL OF MY BOOK PROFITS go to 2 charities. The first charity is for families in polygamy that run out of money, need medical care bills paid, need food, or basic needs met by cash donations. The second charity is to help people who want to escape polygamy and literally leave with nothing to their name. Often they are saddled with bills they must suddenly pay back to the polygamists families or businesses that offered them food, shelter, and basic needs. The choice to leave the cults are very difficult and emotional and by offering to give half of my book profits to these people make me very proud.

To date between both charities I have donated over $421,000 plus from the profits of my book sales. At one time my book Almost Meri’ed had reached #22 on Amazon books in the category it’s listed in, Non-fiction biography. That’s when my book sales were soaring. Every time the show is on tv my books sales go up and up and after 1 year of doing this I am so very proud to know I have been able to contribute all of that money to 2 well-meaning organizations.

I keep no money from either book, I have done 4 book signings in the Chicago/Milwaukee area and will look at offers to do more book signings later this year.

I also am doing a second interview for a local Fox station in Utah. They hosted my first ever tv interview with myself and Lindsay. It’s on Youtube if you care to view it. The interview will air on this coming Wednesday February 8th, 2017 at 8pm local Utah time. Again we will put that up on Youtube for anyone that cares to watch it.

I am working this weekend on my opinions and comments on the Tell Nothings that recently aired. As I have heard it’s more lies and bullshit. And also I will be commenting on the ABC News piece that aired a few weeks ago. Those will be added this weekend some time. I have already written them up but I wanted to go back through and make sure I covered all I had wanted to.

Thanks for reading this. I hope ya’ll have a great weekend!

Almost Defame’ed goes paperback for round 2

My book Almost Defame’ed is almost done editing to be sold as a paperback again. This is our 2nd round for this book as well. I’m very proud of this book because a lot of people have commented on the moral of the story. I’m happy how the book turned out and am very happy to finally get time a few months ago to add more to it and end with an update. The extra info inside is very entertaining. I’m happy my publisher is sending this out for paperback form. It looks really good and I like the new design. I’m happy with how it turned out. I will post the link to purchase it as soon as I get the info.

 

 

Stay warm guys! It’s really cold out there this weekend.
