Beggar with sign: Ask About Our Layaway Plans

Dave Bonta (bio) crowd-sources his problems by following his gut, which he shares with 100 trillion of his closest microbial friends — a close-knit, symbiotic community comprising several thousand species of bacteria, fungi, and protozoa.

  1. Am impatiently waiting for your book to arrive, Dave; apparently it’s on its way right now.


  2. I got it today! It’s terrific! I’m so glad to have it. You must sign it next time you’re on these shores.
    I think it would do very well commercially if you also issued many of the cartoons as greeting cards. There are companies over here who could produce them for you and maybe also distribute them. That’s how “Edward Monkton” (alias for Giles Andrae) set up his hugely successful business (Google “The Interesting Thoughts of Edward Monkton”)


    1. Yay! I’ll be happy to sign it for you.

      Interesting suggestion. I think I could offer notecards through my CafePress store, but they might be too expensive that way. Hmmm.


  3. Yes, purchasing via the Cafe Press store works out very expensive. It would be a lot more profitable for you if the cards were distributed and sold fairly cheaply through the usual outlets for cards.
    If you like, I can find some links to distributors and send them to you.
