Big Bootay Books

Welcome to Big Bootay Books! This is the writing, ideas, and similar blog for myself and any books that I do. Postings and replies may be irregular, and there may be spoilers for some stories that I have or haven’t written yet.

Unfortunately, I have to say this first as a “ground rules” sort of thing.

A number of authors and other creators have found themselves facing legal action after someone claimed that the author stole an idea from them. Since I prefer to avoid court cases, break out in hives when dealing with lawyers, and similar problems-this is my warning to you.

By the act of posting anything on this blog, you agree to transfer all rights regarding ownership to me. I can use anything and everything posted by you without compensation or recognition of any kind. If I manage to write the next whole “OH JOHN RINGO NO!” book that wins dozens of awards and gets me mobbed by beautiful heterosexual (or bisexual) female fans of legal age at conventions, you can’t claim anything from me. No exceptions. In the event of any disagreement over these terms, my interpretation and decision is final. I will try to recognize contributions, but I can’t make any promises.

If you will not or can not accept these terms, please don’t post anything to my blog.

I don’t want to put up this disclaimer, but some assholes just ruin things for everyone else.

Why Is This “Big Bootay Books?”

Well, there’s a bit of a story behind that.

I have to come up with a name for what I was going to publish under, but I couldn’t come up with anything that wasn’t being used by someone else or didn’t make me cringe.

And then, in May of 2020, I caught out of the corner of my eye the movie that would give me the inspiration for this name-

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

-and the scene that I saw was the one where John Litgow was not so much chewing the scenery as devouring it with abandon at Christopher Lloyd as John Bigbooté.

And, if you don’t remember (I understand why if you wanted to forget), this was the era of COVID-19, Karens, and a general level of despising of anything that even remotely seemed fun. So, this is my general, massive, complete double-bird to every wokescold, every censor, every book-burner, every person that hates it when other people are having fun and it isn’t officially approved fun.

Have a nice day.
