Default Rumpel Books 4 Sale

Rumpel Books 4 Sale

Here is at attachment of some illustrations.
I have 3 books full of these kind of illustrations.
There is plenty of anecdotes throughout the books
aswell. There are 40 pages in each book.
I have been selling them for $10 Australian each
which is great value.
I'll have to figure out the overseas postage thing...
sometime.

My first book....'Jester's Doodles & Poetry Book'
has quite a few poems and limericks in it.

My second book....'Fool's Gold' & third book...'Rumpel's Laughing Stock Book' only have illustrations & anecdotes.

Toodleloo for now...
as i only have 10 mins
left on the clock counter.

Regards Rumpel The Worldly Kangaroo Jester Of Oz!

Jester Goose Goose Goose Goose Goose........

Gee...these pictures are just little doodles that were drawn on bits on scrap paper. I'll send a page of one of my books some time...& hopefully in a proper scale size as these doodles don't do me much justice.
Oddly enough i had an old crappy disc & these pics happened to be on them. I got it mixed up with something else.
Signing off the worldly goose weasel!

Crikey $10 is a cheap fee into the world of Rumple!
Is this a published book or an original copy?
Where do we send the money?

Jester Rumpel Books

Hello Dan,
yes $10 is cheap.
They will go up when
they are published someday.
I got them printed myself.
I'll have to include postage fees.
I will have to know where to send them to,
to be able to work out how much to charge.
I'm a bit old fashioned,
so am not up to scratch with internet banking.
Anyway cheeers for now
& hear from you soon.
I will even sign my books if people wish.
Best regards Rumpel!

Hi Rumpel,

When did you make your third book? Why are the first two not topping the bestseller lists yet? Where is the justice in this world!? Where!!??

Jester Rumpel Books

Crikey! I hope this works?
Have no idea if it will attach?
Here is a page example of my Fool's Gold
book. Hope you like it. There are 40 pages
like this in each of my 3 books.
Yes! Would be good to catch up sometime
Peter.
I can't afford to get them published Barry.
Not easy to do anything these days on a shoe-string.
Anyway cheeers for things.
Best regards Rumpel!

Blimey! What a bummer! It didn't work!
Would have been a much better example.
What the heck!
I'll do it some other day!

Good work, Rumpel. Happy to see you've put some stuff up on p.net.

Here is a link that lets you publish for free. Ask them if they "Drop Ship" That way you can get your books sent anywhere in the world.

Go to the tutorial page and do it for practice..
Look into the section on Photo Books, black and white. Sounds right for your stuff.

Time you bought your own computer! They are getting quite affordable.

Jester Mr Rumpel Stiltskin

Glad you like them by crikes!
I do have a laptop, but at present i have
no phoneline.
Oops! I have to skidaddle soon.
I'm off to the Tasmanian circus festival tomorrow
so should have some luck with making a crust with my books
there. I could certainly do with a golden penny or two, otherwise
i'll have to start spinning some straw into gold by crikey!

Jester Rumpel

I'm a bit of a goOse in the department of economics.
Things would be easier if i ever had a credit card as then i'd get the money instantly from people wanting to get a Rumpel booklet or two and i could post the books straight after.
I'll get around to the international postage thing sometime.
Crikey! I think i should get them published sometime, so then things are sorted.
I'll get one or two sent to you Barry....somehow?
Cheeers! Rumpel!

I have just got my Rumple books today and I cannot begin to describe what is in them.

Find 30 bucks, email Rumple and work out some way of getting a set.

The Da Vinci Code was an OK read over a day and a half. These will entertain me for the rest of my life.

I'm quite serious. Get off your arse and check these out.

Lurk Status?

So are the books already published. Does he have a stack waiting?
Someone add a couple of bucks onto the price and distribute them for him.
If theres any real demand he can have a hands off system rigged up from any of these options. Starting with the no money down one.

Anyway, if he gets a distribution system sorted I'm in.
