Hi, hello, greetings. Temerity Smith-Flax here. On behalf of the Black Sunshine Media team, we are genuinely sorry to have jerked everybody’s chain about the release of Christian Adams’ The Lazy Bastard Guide to Mandarin, which we touted as November 7, 2012, and is now indefinite.
The delay is and has been due to technical issues involving the formatting of the ebook with certain distribution channels, and the publisher is working furiously to find a solution to the problem, which if anyone cares, has to do with unsupported characters. Although a Lazy Bastard doesn’t have to worry about “face”, I’m trying to hang on to my job. (Psst. Have I groveled enough, Geoffrey?)
In the meantime, here’s another excerpt from the book.
