Quick update. I just saw this photo on the DD list for today, and thought immediately of you-know-who. Do you agree? Hey, Beau, do you think we should add it to the website? Maybe as a link from monitor 8?

Life Of Agony by Jantjeh

As jon.com nears its climax (so to speak), my friend and mentor, Beau, surprised me with these great black t-shirts sporting the novel's logo and the slogan: "Looking for Jon". I was so pleased with them, we discussed possibly creating more shirts with other slogans and offering them for sale on the jonsmythe website or here on dA.

I would love to know who among Jon's readers would be interesting in buying a jon.com shirt, and at what price. Let me know below, and please be honest.

Also, please see my poll for possible slogans and cast your vote -- even if you would rather go naked in Fargo during a blizzard than be caught dead wearing a walking billboard. Have fun anyway. I won't hate you.

Marcus might, but not me.

It's like the photographer was in my head when he posed and shot this photo.

The idea of Marcus hating me is terrifying. :O

I personally LOVE being a walking billboard for my favorite things, especially things that nobody else knows about. If it's eye-catching, others will ask questions you see! What I love, I fully support. And I love you and your stories, so money would practically be no object in something like this! ^^; But thinking reasonably, The most I've ever spent on a tshirt was $30. I love that shirt to this day, but that's a lot of money to spend on one article of clothing when we're trying to be promotional here...

I'm glad you would support me -- thrilled, in fact. And I can pretty much promise the price will not be anywhere near $30!! I want people to wear them without breaking the bank. This looks like it might be a practical idea after all.

Personally I love custom shirts from people, but I wouldn't be able to wear it if it had something dirty on it, cuz I'm around children like, a lot. And despite how I seem, I do care about their mental welfare! weeelll, that translating to, i don't want their parents to beat me with a nailbat. But tshirts are always fun. :D

Was there a slogan in the poll that you thought was safe for kidlets? Or would you be afraid their folks would check out the website and be offended anyway?

Your two favorites, actually. xD They have in-your-end-oh. Not to tell you to avoid that stuff, its just a personal reason why the shirt would be forced to be pj's onry. xDD I think the first one is funny! But the cat is EPIC.

You haven't read jon.com, but the cat is iconic. She has a lot of fans on dA, though she only appears in one chapter and then dies.

As for all that in-your-end-oh, that is the story you know. Tons of in-you-end-oh and in-your-face sex. Most of it is for pj's only. So I would probably offer more than one type of shirt. That way peeps can avoid being too out-there in their choice of outerwear.

Indeed. I read two chunks more just now. I'll get through it one day! Your writing is great but I'm really not a huge fan of buttsecks. *shrug* The character interactions make it worth it tho. :D I guess I haven't been jaded enough to be like YAY SECKS STORY! Or whatever. o.O

Please don't feel like you HAVE to read it. I have good friends who love my novels, but won't read jon.com. I warned them it was for a very different audience than Fellowship. I don't think less of them for skipping it; they don't think less of me for writing it.

'snot like there's anything else of yours to read now that I'm done with Fellowship, I like your style, damnit. Even tho the subject is kinda eew. xD

Hey, check out my Christmas Carol. THAT should be right up your curvy alley.

And thanks for the compliment. That someone would read one of me "eew" novels just because they like the style is a great thrill. You've made my day; perhaps my whole month!
