Help Jason Webber Publish His Book!

Whassup, rockers? So I've written my first book, a memoir titled "Purple Bananas: How Prince Saved Me and Other Selections from the Soundtrack 2 My Life." It's 57,000 words of violet-colored adventures, chronicling my life as a Prince fan...and how the Purple Yoda from Minneapolis saved my ass on more than one occasion. Think of this book as "The Catcher in the Rye" written by a poor man's Chuck Klosterman. But I promise the word "phony" is never mentioned once.

"Purple Bananas" will appeal to anyone who's a fan of Prince or who loves reading biographies or memoirs about people who live life on the edge. It's a lot of things: Funny. Sad. Nutty. But it's never dull. If you're a Prince fan, you'll find a lot to love here--a loving valentine to the music and persona of Prince Rogers Nelson. And if you're NOT a Prince fan, this book will turn you into one. Guaranteed.

I want to publish the book via BookBaby because they not only print beautiful books, but they also have distribution connections to get the book on the shelves at Powell's, local bookstores across America, and also through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. For more information about BookBaby, check out

If you donate, I'll be listing your name in a special acknowledgement at the back of the book, and designating you as a Purple Banana Peeler. Yes, for real. I can't guarantee you a free physical copy (the BookBaby package only includes 25 paperback books and I have to try and sell those via consignment) but your name WILL be listed as a Purple Banana Peeler, and people will know how sexy you are.

Plus, anyone who donates $25 or more will receive a FREE copy of the e-book! 

So, dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to help put my first book on bookstore shelves across America. Become a Purple Banana Peeler today!
