Except the Protagonist’s Name is Changed

My “Except the Protagonist’s Name is Changed” project is more of an experiment in what self-publishing and the Internet allow us to do. I take public domain books and change the protagonists changed to something silly. (Though I don’t think I butcher these stories nearly as badly as Hollywood does.)

This is along the lines of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”, although it is a more literal copying. And with googly eyes on the covers.

My process was to download the texts from Project Gutenberg, do a “Find and Replace” in a word processor (followed with more detailed review), create a cover (making use of Flickr’s Creative Commons licensed photos and other public domain images, and freely-licensed fonts from dafont.com), and then upload the CreateSpace.com (which will handle listing them on Amazon.com).
