My White Trash Picture Learnin' Book

I was thinking about writing an irreverent picture book. Here's the start of it. I would appreciate any comments, threats, suggestions, thoughts.  Thanks to both of you readers ahead of time. John

This is my White Trash Picture Learnin' Book and I am six and I have two brothers and 1 sister and none of 'em knowd as much as me.
There are 4 things on the kitchen counter an one of  'em is dead.
The others you kin eat.
If Becky et one and Joshua et another, and the dead one is still dead, how many do you got left?
Answer: One-that ain't dead.
Animal Sounds
Neighbor's dogs go Bark, Bark, Bark and don't never goddamn shut up.
Cats go Purr, Purr, Purr 'cept when your daddy throwd them off a bridge in a pillowcase.
Armadillers are for hittin' with the truck and don't say nothin'.
Hogs squeal Oink, Oink, Oink and r hard as hell to trap.
Fun Facts
If you hang meat from a rope and tell a Pit Bull to go on and chomp on it, that Pit Bull will jump up and chomp on it and never let go of it, lest you tell 'em to let go. They'll just hang there till they die.
Momma's Ecernomics
1. You send the check you wrote to pay the power company to the phone company.
2. You send the check you wrote to pay the phone company to the power company.
By the time they send 'em back and say you mixed 'em up, you done got your paycheck to pay 'em anyways.



  1. Hysterical, or should I say, gosh-darned shittin' me funnny.
    Keep it up. Certainly unique.
    Y'all aiming dis un at de wate trash? Dey might use it fer lernin.

    1. Arthur,
      I thought your scientist persona was a ruse. You speak the white trash vernacular a little too well. Hmm.

  2. Haven't come across this pertickler genre before but love the humour as always! :D

    1. It's a local thing (white trash). I grew up in a tough neighborhood. Everything in the post happened. The genre is writing Children's Picture Books for Adults. We can make fun of the kids but we won't let them read it.

My new novel, published by Black Opal Books:

After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States government encouraged all eligible young men to enlist immediately in the fight against its enemies overseas. All eligible young men except Japanese-Americans.Nisei is the story of Hideo Bobby Takahashi, a Hawaiian-born Japanese-American who must overcome prejudice, internment, and the policies of his own government to prove his loyalty to his country.Narrated by Bobby Takahashi and read by his son, Robert, 46 years after Bobby’s death, the story details the young Nisei’s determination to fight honorably for his country and return to the young love he was forced to leave, a girl he cannot have because she is white.

How to Make a Bad Book Trailer on a Limited Budget

The competition is tough out there, baby, with over five million books available on Amazon. So how do you stand out from the minions and get your name to be a household world among the literati? A well-written interesting book helps, but apparently it's all in the marketing. A good book publicist cost six figures, while the bottom of the publicist heap will run you about four thousand for three months of her trying to get you on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
So like most new authors, you handle your own marketing. One tool necessary for promotion is a book trailer. Again, they can cost thousands or as in my case $1.76. I downloaded Microsoft Movie Maker for free and used the $1.76 to buy an Almond Joy candy bar. With the software on my computer and the candy bar in my belly, I put together my own book trailer.
It's a bit premature to release the trailer since the book won't be out till the end of the year and my new website is still in production, but common sense has never st…
