Corporate Man is called in to investigate reports of vile, unethical business practices at Great American Business Company. What he finds there just might destroy him (except we all know the ending to The Tragic Death of Corporate Man so it should be fairly obvious that it can't really destroy him, though it can come close).

Enslaved by the Bonus Whores is an all new Corporate Man Adventure Serial. Chapters will post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

After nearly a decade of imprisonment, Corporate Man returns to find the economy in ruins and his deadliest enemies in control of all but a fraction of society's wealth. He embarks upon a quest to set right the wrongs of the business world; a task that will ultimately destroy him.

First Edition Stock

Look!  Real books.  Made of paper!    

For those analog-souls out there, I have paperback editions of both volumes of The Tragic Death of Corporate Man (a hero for capitalism; champion of the working class) and a brand new short story collection called These Odd Morsels.  If you’d like to read one (or all) of these wonderful books I would be happy to act as your supplier.  Of course, if you don’t live in the vicinity of ME and find yourself shy of vacation hours with which to visit ME, you can always order copies from these links: 

There is an added benefit when you buy directly from me, though.  I know the author personally and I’ve convinced myself to sign copies and provide bookmarks to those who put cash (checks if I know you well enough) in my hand.  Just $5.00 for either Corporate Man book and only $7.50 for These Odd Morsels.  Quite a bargain.  For those of you looking for unique Christmas presents (no, it’s not took early to mention Christmas.  I think winter holiday displays are edging out the Halloween merchandise already) I have a deal for you.  Buy five copies of any one book and get a fifth copy (presumably for yourself) at no additional charge. 
For those of you who believe that books are what happen to other people, I have another freebie just for you: an all encompassing guilt trip.  Five bucks ($17.50 for the set!) is not that much when you think of all the good it will do.  Not only will your money support independent artists, but it will join in the battle against illiteracy and combat the stranglehold that large corporate conglomerates have over the publishing industry.  And if you know me personally, or even if you are just a casual acquaintance, then you should buy multiple copies simply because I asked and you love me.
If that doesn’t convince you, then you should buy my books to make this little girl happy.  

If you have a hard time doing anything for other people, then think of yourself.  If you take a picture of yourself with either (or both) of my Corporate Man books and send it to me, I will post it on the Corporate Man blog where you will be immortalized on the internet forever.  Just ask these satisfied customers.


And remember, the person who submits the best picture will win a copy of These Odd Morsels; the very first edition, provable by the print date in the back.
Lastly, for those of you who like to stir up trouble I have a job for you.  Contact your local booksellers and demand that they stock their shelves with fine Tom Landaluce written goodies.  Make a nuisance of yourself, you know you want to.  Boise area troublemakers, I provide you with this list to get started.  Feel free to add other locations.  For those of you outside of Boise but still up for a bit of mischief, check the listings for your area (though you can call Boise stores as well if you want to).

And let's not forget about the Library!  Tell them that you heard about this book (or books) by a local author and you were wondering if they had it (or them) and if not, would they please, please purchase it (or them).  Be sure to provide the title (or titles) and my name.  If you are one of those really helpful sorts, you could even pass along ISBN numbers (9781477626023, 9781482087291, and 9781482619539). Just remember, be nice to these people, they work hard and they let me borrow audio books all the time.
