The Useless Bits


For several days now, I have been putting snippets from my books on Facebook.  These are snippets I cut out before they went to the editor because they didn’t fit, were too silly, or just didn’t add to the experience of the book.  The majority are funny bits and I keep them because you never know when a good joke will come in handy.

However, in 3 years, I have never had the opportunity to take a snippet that was cut from one book and use it in another.  It turns out, writing doesn’t seem to work that way, at least, not for me.

But they are funny and I am rarely funny, these bits are practically strokes of comedic genius for me.  So, for a while, I will keep releasing them one snippet a day. Mostly to prove that I do indeed have a sense of humor, despite it being a little warped and incredibly twisted.  As one nephew pointed out “Have you ever realized that when you make a joke, you giggle hysterically, but no one else gets it?”

Think of these bits as “The Author’s Cut” of the book.  I removed them, but they were still good enough to include as “extras.”

  1. Lol…your nephew is a comedian! I love these snippets and enjoy reading them…maybe you can make a section like an Easter Egg or something in a kindle book with a few “outtakes” such as it were….lol
