All you need to know about the cool new World’s Largest Gummy Worm is that this completely disturbing edible ribbed invertebrate measures in at a massive 26″ long with a 5″ girth, weighs 3 pounds, has 4000 calories, is equivalent to approximately 128 regular gummy worms or 840 regular gummy bears, serves up to 34 people and even has a creepy smiley face.

This disgusting thing just seemed seasonally appropriate?

Putting this project together was an exercise in speed and simplicity. We did the majority of the writing and the marketing within an eight week timeframe, while we were each working on other projects. By releasing it ourselves, we were able to maintain full control over the entire process, set our own price, eliminate DRM (which readers hate) and earn four times the royalty rate we would have through a publisher. By going ebook-only, we could add a bunch of fun supplements for no extra cost, while also releasing it super-fast.

As I learned from “CHURCH 10●19●62” http://www.itstartedinchurch.com, it’s easy and cheap to publish a book.
