Selling 1,000 books at $69.99 $69,990.00

Anticipated profit $19,025.44"


That's a good business plan. When you get $50,964.55 you should pursue it. As for now I have decided not to invest $50,964.55. I'll just wait to buy a copy from the Council of the Olive Garden. They really have a better plan than I have. We'll see what happens. Otherwise this is a great opportunity for someone to make a butt load of money. I'll probably invest my money in municipal bonds or something better.

Relax, Almighty Doer of Stuff. You have nothing at all to lose. NOTHING!!

I've worked with several self-publishing authors, and I have a suggestion for who to go with for the publishing.

It's print-on-demand, so you only have to deal with the setup fees (less than $100, if I recall). Then you set how much profit you want to make from each book. Should be easy to set it at $0. Anyone wanting a book can place an order, it'll be printed and shipped to them, no further cost to us once the setup fee has been taken care of.

The print quality is excellent, and their customer service is good as well. I'd be happy to take care of the file design and setup, some of the technical stuff on the account, and the uploading, but someone else will have to take care of the setup costs.

It might be a good idea to get Bobby in on that, too. For copyright purposes, he or Flying Spaghetti Monster LLC should be the publisher of record.

Yes. I have self-published a book through CreateSpace which is a branch of Amazon. The total cost was $0.00. They even post your book on the Amazon website at no cost. This is a good option. There are lots of self-publishing companies out there to prey on amateur authors because it is a very emotional process.

It is very easy to drop a few thousand dollars on your life's work. Many of those companies know that and prey on author's emotional appeal.

This can be done at no cost at all assuming no author seeks compensation. I can help provide the information about this process or you can figure it out yourself by going to www.createspace.com . It is pretty well layed out. I think anybody that is somewhat familar with creating PDF files could accompish this without any challenge.

The book I currently have published sells without royalties and the cost is $3.59. The price might be higher if it is a bigger book with more pages.

I also have experience setting up and running a C corporation in the State of North Carolina. I am comfortable with the process of setting up an S corporation, LLC or a non-profit corporation as well if you are interested in being headquartered in North Carolina. I am not comfortable setting up a non-profit unless there was 5 or more members with a North Carolina address willing to serve as trustees of the non-profit.

Best case scenario is that there is a large following of Pastafarians in Delaware willing to set up the headquarters there.

These are exciting times in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. We can do it.

Then why didn't you decide to do this in the first place. "IF THERE IS ANY MONEY TO BE MADE FROM THE PRINTING OF THE SECOND EDITION OF THE LOOSE CANON. IT SHOULD GO INTO KEEPING THIS WEBSITE AND THE LOOSE CANONhttp://www.loose-canon.info/ epub AND PDF PAGE GOING. Because the PDF website went down and The Dark Noodle save the day and started up a new page."

But I, along with others want to keep it free. I have a plan to make a Missal and Missalette, when the second edition of the Loose Canon comes out. To see what the Council of Olive Garden would be willing to do with it. Those two will be on my deviant art page when the time comes. And they will also be free.

What is this? I looked on google. Even the gods of google were not able to produce evidence that Flying Spaghetti Monster LLC is a real entity.

Is Flying Spaghetti Monster LLC a real entity? If not, why were you pretending that it was? If so, in what state is it incorporated. If you have the answer, please provide the answer. If you do not have the answer, please say, "I do not know." That way I can move on to a more useful resource to find the information in which I seek.

Insulting me might entertain you but it does nothing for the exchange of information.

Just food for thought.

That's a link. If you click on it, it takes you (eventually) to a page of search results for the search phrase:

"flying spaghetti monster llc" location

The quotation marks, are important.




When I did this search, I was able to find the necessary information on the first page of search results. I don't feel like simply telling you, because you have been demanding and have made it a point to ignore what many people told you about the Loose Canon. If it matters that much to you, you can figure it out for yourself. I've already given you the key to figuring it out.
