"The Asperger Computer" outline and Spreading the Word


Hello, everyone! How are you guys doing? I'm doing okay, though today I wasn't being really productive with me building my audience for my second edition of my e-book, "The Asperger Computer" because I had problems with drowsiness, even if I did take a cup of coffee with some white sugar! I did not even continue writing my edition!

Anyway, what I want to take the time for right now is to share with you guys what you are expected to see in the second edition of my e-book. I'm going to share with you all the topics I'm covering, with their appropriate sections, and afterwards, I'm going to give you guys a message that will encourage you to share this with your friends, and tell them, as well as your other Facebook friends and who you know about my e-book being in progress.

The second edition of my e-book, "The Asperger Computer: A Self-Published Guide on Asperger's Syndrome and Multimedia," by Gregory Desrosiers (me), will contain four times the text contained in the original edition (120,000 words), and five times the amount of topics discussed, making sure the final size of the manuscript does not exceed maximum sizes for sites such as Smashwords.com (2MB). The e-book will still be sold at $2.99 a copy.

There will be 14 chapters, for a total of 162 sections. An external prologue, epilogue, and reference sections will be provided in the e-book.

Here's what the e-book will contain:

Epilogue
Thank You Message

Now, I will make changes to the part where I talk about me not standing certain celebritiy songs, as told by a very cool freelance artist named Bridget Driver, but one thing I will not remove from my book is the section on the Nintendo Wii U. Please do not even write a comment on how bad the console is, because what you are doing is ruining my interest to the game company after selling them out by not buying anything from them for the past two years. When I get a chance, I even deserve, and want to, pay $1000 to Nintendo Co. Ltd. in Kyoto, Japan, for the Wii U, 3DS, games, and fan support through the company's site and exclusive channels.

I hate letting go of the company, especially when Shigeru Miyamoto, Satoru Iwata, and Reggie Fils-Aime deserve to be respected and heavily praised after I saw their photos of their time at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas just this Tuesday. The N64 and the GameCube are the consoles I definitely grew up with, regardless if they were outran by Sony's PlayStation and PlayStation 2. Even then, the multinational company is the only company in the world to own the entire video game industry.

Any suggestions on my sections can be made, though I will be most likely in a rush to get things done, because I am currently only at 37,000 words and still need to involve a lot of thinking in very critical sections. If I break easily, no one will ever be interested in my e-book anymore once they find out that those sections are poorly written and need to be improved in terms of content and absolute certainty.

Anyway, here's something I want you guys to do. I am determined to finalize my e-book for selling by between June 20th to the 24th. But I definitely want to have a bug public audience ready to buy my e-book. So what I want you to do is share this Note to your friends and family, and make an announcement to your followers on other social networks, including Twitter and YouTube. Spread the word through social networks, follow new people, and contact important people such as Concordia University. Additionally, what you could do is volunteer for some time and look over one or two parts of my e-book to make sure it makes sense and is really interesting; please let me know!

What I will do is send an e-mail to the Ministère de L'Éducation, de Loisir, et du Sport du Québec, telling them that I am due to sell my e-book and would like to get in touch with some of their finest organizations for people with Asperger's syndrome. I even have a desired interest to get enough attention to be considered for a live television appointment with Premier of Quebec Pauline Marois about the social stigma as a norm for the minority English people, including me. French is definitely not my language, but I am willing to present myself to the Government of Quebec and hopefully reach out to more political officials, hopefully ending out with an award and recognition from our prime minister.

Okay, that does it for this note. I hope you guys help me out with this. See you later!

Have a great time, and I'll see you later!!
Please make a donation to me for an advertising campaign for my e-book, The Asperger Computer! All donations will be kept track and shall be used for a Facebook advertising campaign. Optimistically, I should have a donated budget of $100 before making way for a much larger Facebook ad campaign for my e-book. Donations exceeding the budget will either add up to the budget for the mass ad campaign, or to boost a post, primarily for the status on Facebook sharing all the links for people to buy my e-book!

If you donate more than $4.00 CAD, you will get my e-book for free. You aren't necessarily paying for my e-book by doing so because all of that $4.00 and over donated will be spent for advertising, to fulfill the purpose of "fundraising" or "not-for-profit" campaign.

Come support my efforts!
