Those of you waiting to read some of my books in electronic formats have no excuses now. Seriously. As of right now you can read:
Stays Crunchy in Milk
I Slept With Your Imaginary Friend
They’re also dirt cheap. The first two are $5 each and Imaginary Friend is only $4. Even better though – until the 12th of March you can use the code RAE25 at checkout on Smashwords and get 25% off your order. Which means that the first two are only $3.75 each and Imaginary Friend is only $3. Come on, you won’t find a better off than that!
Every format you could want, including Kindle (though with no DRM! You just have to mail it to your Kindle account or drop it on the device) at prices so low they almost count as stealing (of course they are all also available in print formats as well just not at prices quite that low). So give them a try, won’t you? And better yet – tell a friend.

Hey kids, it’s almost time for New York Comic-Con! This year that means something extra fun as I will be sharing a booth with Attila Adorjany, artist extraordinaire! Attila and I have a lot of fun together, we actually have to be careful about calling each other because we have ended up chatting till 6am just having discussions ranging from here to there, near and far.
So if you come by the booth (Booth #349 which if you click this link will show you a map!) we will not only try and sell you things (he makes shirts that I love and toys and art that is amazing! I will have all sorts of books and things extra cheap!) but we will talk to you and ask you to hang out. Seriously, we are designing our booth to be able to hang out with people. So come by and say hello and buy some stuff if you’re so inclined.
I mean, Christ, he sells barfing rainbow shirts. You need these (If you won’t be at the show you can order them here) and you know it.
Anyway! NYCC! Booth #349! Come by! Books and art and shirts and toys and good times and laughter. Yup. Spread the word. October 8th-10th at the Javitz.
But and so also, the 6th of October, Weds, two tiny days before the convention, I’ll be on the Joe Conte show. I don’t mean calling in, either. I will apparently be in the studio for this one. I don’t know how long or anything, but the show is worth listening to, regardless. Funny fucking shit goes down there. It also has a chat room and you can listen live on the intardwebs and everything. All at the show’s site: www.thejoeconteshow.com which is pretty easy to remember.
So I would be quite happy if you listened in. I’ll be there to promote NYCC and I Slept With Your Imaginary Friend, my newest book of essays and short fiction. I think it is now a goal in my life to get Joe Conte to discuss Dazzler with me, live on air. So look for that.
And that’s what’s going on, kinda mostly, sorta. Woo!
So my new book, I SLEPT WITH YOUR IMAGINARY FRIEND is out on Amazon, it seems. Hooray! This one is a collection of essays and short fiction – both from around the internet over the last untold number of years and new stuff. The official book description:
Ever wonder what the sound of a life far-too-examined might be? The thoughts and ravings of someone raised on too much pop culture and left to stew in his own thoughts? Well, just add some Internet, a large dollop of caffeine and… you end up right here. I SLEPT WITH YOUR IMAGINARY FRIEND is a wide-ranging collection of Adam P. Knave’s various humor writing from across the Internet, spanning close to a decade. As an added bonus, I SLEPT WITH YOUR IMAGINARY FRIEND contains doses of recent short fiction for extra literary flavor!
* Luke Cage’s invasion of a sovereign nation!
* The real true facts about Pop-Tarts!
* Details regarding Superman’s hoopty!
* The secret behind spam e-mail!
* Ninjas, mad scientists, talking trees, disco super-heroes, annoying children from the far-flung future, AND MORE!
It’s priced at a low 10 bucks, though I’m sure Amazon will drop it further still. Schmutzie did the amazing cover.
I will also, it should be noted, have a ton of them at NYCC but more info on that as it draws closer. Electronic editions (kindle, nook, ibooks, pdf and more are coming soon, I’ll let you know)
I’ve been working on this book, I Slept With Your Imaginary Friend for a while now. It’s a book of essays and some short fiction, featuring stuff I’ve written over the last bunch of years as well as a selection of new material. The book is going well, and should be out in late September/early October I hear. It’s an exciting time.
Also very exciting is that it now has a cover. Back when the book was just a seedling of a thing Pete at Creative Guy wanted me to do, we had a long discussion of what it should look like. We kept coming back to a perfect problem. The book, we both agreed, could either be very subtle and plain or wild and crazy. With a title like I Slept With Your Imaginary Friend you really want one or the other.
The subtle cover lets the title breathe and can help it play out slowly while the louder cover would let the title creep in the background some. Both are very valid and could make for great covers. But which? And who should design it?
Instantly I had an idea. Schmutzie. She’s a great writer and designer up in Canada and I’d known her for a while. I remembered I had seen her do work both very subtle and wild and crazy so I showed a bunch of her work to Pete. He agreed. This, if we could convince her to work on it, would be perfect.
Turns out she’s never designed a book cover before (as far as I know, at least, and hopefully she’ll correct me if I’m wrong) and was excited about working on it. So we discussed the whole quiet/loud choices and I sent her a bunch of the book and left her alone. She came back with such a wonderful cover. So amazing. And now, finally, I can show it off to you guys. So here it is…
