Near Space Press presents Net Assets

I *want* an iPad!

Scratch that. I *need* an iPad! I've got books to write,books to publish and needs to meet. I cannot function without an iPad. That presents a problem. I'm living on a fixed (lower-class) income and cannot afford one. What is *infinitely* worse is that Obama's (and to a lesser extent, FDR's) Great Society has failed to live up to its promise of Freedom from Want. (I have this suspicion that is because I'm caucasian.) Whatever the reason, I'm not seeing the wealth of "Obama money" flowing into *my* coffers (funny how *my* "coffers" always seem to resemble empty pockets and bare cupboards) But I have a plan which involves getting Carl Bussjaeger's novel, "Net Assets" published through Amazon as an ebook. I'm even setting up a website for this and other novels that have not found homes at

Still, having an iPad would make this process easier. If you'd like to help out, please donate via the donate buttons on this page. And check out Near Space for sample chapters of Net Assets. They should be up by this Friday.

I really don't understand why you say that NEED an Ipad for writing. I can understand wanting one for other purposes. But needing it?? That doesn't make sense to me.

Maybe in another blog you can explain this more.
