I’ve had a lot of people tell me I should write a book. And while I don’t like people telling me what to do, once in a great while I will humor them.
So I wrote a book.
You should probably buy it.
Thank you to Amy for her help with the covers.
Before you go thinking anything fancy, let me tell you that it’s self-published and the whole process has take more time and energy (and money) than I planned on. The pictures aren’t exactly stellar and I’m sure there’s at least one rogue punctuation mark somewhere.
But I decided I wanted a collection of my words I could hold in my hand and give to my mom, something I couldn’t accidentally delete while looking for a vegan cheesecake recipe on the Internet.
This is the front and back cover and it looks better in person, so you should probably just buy it.
But that’s not the cool thing.
The cool thing is that if you buy this book, you can help save a shelter animal (this is where the kitten and/or dog and/or one-eyed hamster come in.)
I didn’t publish this book to try and make money, as that is a laughable notion. I published it so I could share my crazy view on things and maybe make you laugh, smile or feel a bit more normal. So if you invest a little bit of time and money into reading it, I will give a little bit of time and money back.
Any profits that are made from this book will go directly into an “Animals Have Issues” fund for the Humane Society and used to fund our annual gift.
You know I love my shelter animals, and more than 8 million animals enter shelters every year. As you know, you get what you give, and for the cost of some overpriced coffee, you can get something cool and give back something tangible (and avoid having to listen to someone in front of you order a half-caff, skim, sugar-free, extra hot mocha with 1 3/4 pumps of calorie-free syrup, extra oxygen and 75 sprinkles.)
So with a click of the mouse, a sharing/StumblingUpon/Tweet of this post, we can build up some kick-ass support for some animals that, well, have issues of their own and need some help.
Sound like a plan?
So in case you’re like me and need things spelled out for you:
- Buy the book either here or here and the Kindle version here
- Tell a friend or ten
- Write a review on Amazon and help me get the word out
- Save a kitten and a puppy and some abandoned one-eyed hamster
- Enter the pantheon of awesomeness
Disclaimer: Amazon is still building the page, so there’s no description or “look inside” feature yet, but you can still buy it and I’ll update this when it’s done.
Also, I’m still trying to figure out how to pimp the book out with a picture/link on the front of my blog. It seems WordPress doesn’t allow the convenient link from Amazon, so I’m trying to figure out an alternative without violence (help!)
I promise not to hit you over the head with this for too long—I’ll be back to my regularly rambling neurosis soon enough.
But for now?
I wrote a book.
It’s the holiday season and this makes a fast and easy gift.
You should probably buy it.
Buy the book. Save a kitten.
