The Book is Done

In through the nose, out through the mouth.  Deep breath.  Throw up or crap pants.

That has been my routine for what seems to be weeks.  This writing and publishing a book thing has been interesting to say the least.  I would think this is how it is on the first time for everyone or maybe it just is me.  If it’s like this every time people would never write a second book.  It’s also been a test of patience, which I didn’t have much of to begin with and I’m pretty sure I’ve left it all on the table.  It has been a hurry up and wait process to say the least.

For those of you who have been following my stories from the beginning, you will recognize a lot of them.  I have tweaked previous stories from my blog, used the most popular stories from my blog as they were and added stories that you will only find in the book.  Most of the stories I pulled from the blog are not actually available here anymore.  I’ve also started gathering stories for a possible second book…….I’m ahead of myself now, let’s get the first one up and running.

The book is priced reasonably at $3.99 which hopefully won’t be too expensive for people to ‘try it out’.  I did set up an email address in case I get a lot of hate mail.  I’d hate to field those in the same email account I get correspondence about jobs or from my family and friends.  If all goes well maybe I’ll get ‘not hate mail’, you never know.

Out of the 11 eBook sellers, Amazon Kindle will have it for sale the quickest.  That means in just a few days Following Funny will be swimming among the thousands of other eBooks out there.  I’m a good swimmer but we’ll see how the book does.

For those who follow me and read my ramblings, thank you, thank you and thank you.  It’s because of you I decided to stick my neck out there and finally do this.  For those of you who are planning on purchasing the book I appreciate it more than you could know.  If you do purchase it please put a review in with whichever seller you purchase it from.  I’m one of those people who looks at the reviews before buying a book and I know others do as well.

The unfortunate part of all this is I won’t know exactly how well, or not well, it’s doing for probably a month or two due to the way the sellers report sales.  Again the patience is being tested and I’m failing miserably.  Thus I will continue to repeat my previous process.

In through the nose, out through the mouth.  Deep breath.  Throw up or crap pants.

  1. Congrats on finishing your book. It is great to hear someone stuck with their goal and was able to put their work out there. This is definitely something to be proud of. I hope to one day be able to write something down and inspire people from all walks of life. Best of luck.
