My Very First Book is Here!

Behold! We May Rock You! book cover

Here it is. The cover what I made myself.

It’s an exciting day here Industries International, which is a name I just made up and will probably change – scratch that – definitely change soon: pre-orders are being accepted over at Amazon for my very first novel, “Behold! We May Rock You!”

For right now, at this moment, it’s only available on Kindle. I’m working on the paperback version and it’s proving to be a little more involved than I would have guessed. It’s cool, though. It will be here soon enough and, if you are a digital type, you can read it on your Kindle or your iPad or wherever you read your Kindle-y type books and you will love it.

The ebook itself goes on sale on January 22. And you can order it here.

A milestone, as it were!

Good news, you two! I’ve reached the halfway point of editing the first book. Perhaps at some point I can start announcing release dates and all that. But I’m not sure when anything will be finished, so we’re going to keep it real loosey-goosey, k? K.

Thanks for sticking with me. Have a nice day.


If You Want Something Done

Y’all. This is huge.

As one or both of you may know, I have participated in the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo, check it out) for the past four years. I have finished five novels. I have zero novels published. I also have a bunch of short stories, personal essays, sketches, listicles, and other things, enough to publish a self-indulgent sort of collection of unpublished works. 

Fast forward to last week and I’m reading this book on overcoming procrastination (It’s called Eat That Frog, check it out) and Brian Tracy talks about setting a goal that can be accomplished over the course of a year and how you forego practically everything else in favor of that goal.

I’d love to sing at your retirement party, but I have a year-long goal, yo.

That sort of thing.

Well, you two, I have a goal.

Between now and September 1, 2019, I will edit and publish my seven (7) books. I have a good friend who’s helping me with the editing. I’ll make the changes, design a cover, self-publish them.1

Through the course of this journey/goal, I will no doubt rely on the assistance of maybe both of you. I hope you’re up for the challenge. I may add your names to the “Acknowledgements” section of one of the books. There will be room. And there will be seven (7) books.

Stay tuned!
