comment Petty Character
It is not that he is always petty, but that he sometimes plans and does things purely because he can. That it petty. That was what I was referring to. He is so much more than petty, but is a good example of quality pettiness in some occasions.

"Acceptable" == better than vanity publishing. I actually do want people to take my work seriously. @Stadnback - thank yo ufor that link - I did search self-publishing questions before posting, but didn't seee this for some reason.
