An open letter to the Sassafras Science Adventurers who are considering buying a copy of the new Sassafras Science Geology novel.
Adventurers, I am not sure I should use that term as I don't want you to go on a Sassafras Science journey in the first place. But friends seemed wrong and if you have gotten this far, I must admit that you are adventurers.
Most of you know me as the Man With No Eyebrows, some of you know my real name, but I am not going to share it here for obvious reasons.
Instead, I am here to address a problem.
A problem that affects me greatly - one that has caused me to share something with you all that will . . . well, it has made me feel more vulnerable than ever. And the honesty in this letter scares me a bit, but the end result I hope to achieve is well worth the exposure.
Last night, I was walking through the streets of an undisclosed location late at night and I found the following stapled to a telephone pole: A Birth Announcement for the new Sassafras Science Geology novel.
Are you kidding me?
People still read the Sassafras Science series? I thought I had discouraged the world from these adventures with my previous writings.
Apparently though, thousands of "Sassy-Sci peeps" are loving science, which I am not completely opposed to, but you can learn about this subject in ways that won't encourage my nemesis.
Let me just tell you quite frankly - the new leg from the Sassafras Science Adventures is embarrassing to me. And there is no way you should ever, in a million years, get this book!
You can learn about rocks, minerals, islands, mountains, earthquakes, and volcanoes from somewhere else - a textbook - anything to help you avoid seeing what happened to me on this leg.
I watched the video trailer.
I see how they carefully avoided me. They focused on all the great places you will go - Ecuador, Norway, Antarctica, and more.
Well, I went places, too.
And my plan would have worked beautifully if it wasn't for my nemesis and his science-learning niece and nephew.
