Today we have a new addition to our series about Self-Published Geniuses. This is where we bring you news of authors with a vanity press book in which the author claims to have made paradigm-shattering discoveries, and announces his work by hiring a press release service.
The title of the press release is Author Daniel Snuffer’s newly released “Evolution: The Great Deception” is an intensive examination of the theory of evolution. Like so many others in our collection, it was issued by Cision PRWeb, which says it’s “the leader in online news distribution and publicity.” Here are some excerpts from the press release, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
“Evolution: The Great Deception”: a potent consideration. [Great title!] “Evolution: The Great Deception” is the creation of published author, Daniel Snuffer [Hee hee!], an avid reader who overcame dyslexia and veteran of the US Marines.
Snuffer sounds like a great guy! Then the press release quotes the brilliant author:
Snuffer writes, “Man is driven to find the GOD he lost in the garden of Eden [Yes!], and now you know the truth! [Huh?] Some men are so desperate that they look to cold dumb rocks for the majesty of creation, and that pursuit leads them to another creator, another god, and the greatest lie ever told — evolution.”
Wowie — evolution is the greatest lie ever told! The quote from the author continues:
Perhaps some people just didn’t get the GOD gene [There’s a god gene?] or perhaps they got it, but the gene is just flawed. How else could evolution end up leading to the worship of strange gods?
What strange gods is the author talking about? He tells us:
It is all just rocks, fake pictures, and the dirt shoveled out of the way trying to bury GOD with a lie. You can seek the popular opinion and ignore the GOD coursing through your veins, but it will be at your loss and truly sad. The fire will still be in your heart, but it will burn for a strange god and one that lies.
It sounds like a truly horrible fate. The press release then says:
Published by Christian Faith Publishing [Aha!], Daniel Snuffer’s new book is an impassioned plea born from the author’s faith-based study.
We’ve seen that publisher’s name several times before. Here’s their website: Christian Faith Publishing. It leaves no doubt — they’re a vanity publisher. They even let authors pay their fees on a monthly installment plan. With that, and the press release, we know the book qualifies for our collection.
After that essential information, we searched for the book at Amazon — and we found it! Wowie — it has 188 pages and it costs only $14.17 in paperback. What a deal! And yes, Amazon has a “Look inside” feature. Hey — there are no reviews yet. You can be the first!
Near the end of the press release it says you can view a synopsis of the book on YouTube. We haven’t looked, but you can’t resist, can you?
Okay, dear reader, that’s all we know. So go ahead and buy the thing — and tell ’em the Curmudgeon sent ya!
