Death By Ploot Ploot!

Death By Poot Poot! by Dara Joy

Do you want me to review Dara Joy's new one Death By Ploot Ploot!? She's selling it for $4.50 as a "Valentine's day gift" to the last 10 fans who stuck by her after the distribution fiasco of her previous book.

According to Urban Dictionary, "ploot" either means "to have sexual intercourse" or "a hardcore smelling funk from the vagina". I'd guess that the author is thinking of the first definition of the word when she uses it for the title.

Anyway, here's the problem. At the sales page, the only method of payment is via Paypal. I can't find a way for me to get that ebook (that's what it says here, so there's no worries about dodgy non-delivering issues like her last book, I think) without having to have a Paypal account first and Paypal requires Malaysians like me to fax them my utility bills, credit card image, et cetera first before they will activate an account for me. I don't want to go through all that hassle.

So, here's where I need a favor.

Are you willing to buy that thing for me? I'll pay you back, by buying you any ebook of about the same value ($4.50 - $5.99 is okay with me) of your choice from any electronic publisher. Or you can of course buy it for me as a Chinese New Year gift.

Either way, email me if you want to give me a hand here.

Oh, and it seems like she has resolved her issue with Dorchester so she's getting some new books out the old-fashioned way with a currently unidentified publisher so this may be good news to people who are hoping for some new Matrix of Destiny books.

Update: Someone has already helped me get the book, so there's no need to drop me a line with an offer to help. Thanks, everyone!

Is it just me, or does it look like that headless, rather husky male torso and those lean, leather(pleather?)-clad legs came from two different bodies?

Good call, bettie. I'm afraid I hadn't made it past the sheer horridness of the font/colour choice. *cringe wince*

Not to mention I'm still wondering wtf's a Ploot Ploot...though not enough to go look for a blurb...

The torso and the legs look like they belong to two different people to me as well. In fact, given that Cory showed up on the cover of the author's previous two books, I won't be surprised if the torso is his.

Betty that's the first thing I noticed! It's still a lot better than her last self-published cover. :P

I don't know this author, but from the title and definition of Ploot, I absolutely must have this book! It sounds a bit twisted, which would be right up my alley.

Glad somebody is going to get you a copy of Ploot, Ploot, the Faithful Friend to review. Bet your review will be a hoot.

I will admit, somewhat shamefacedly, that I loved Knight of a Trillion Stars, however.

Geeze, if that's better than the last one, I'm well and truly scared . . .

This has got to be one of the most unattractive covers ever created... and your right its a morphed cover.The top and bottoms aren't the same picture and I'm almost positive that bulge is fabricated as well. Font is beyond atrocious as well. *shudders* gives me the willies.

I kind of like the font. Sorry, too--I emailed you before I read the footnote at the bottom of your posting and plea for Dara's book. I'll send you something else :)

I think the headless cover is way better than the other self published covers featuring the man's face.
