Remember when I was all like, “I’m going to start writing a book this summer”?
And you were all like, “Yeah! Go for it! Can’t wait to read it”?
And I was all like, “Wow, this book-writing thing is hard. Maybe I’ll just have some more beer and ice cream and think about what I’m going to write for a little bit. And then maybe I’ll watch a couple episodes of Master Chef, you know, for inspiration… and, uh, take a nap… and, boy, my apartment sure could use some cleaning”? (Okay, so maybe you don’t remember that last part because, uh, I failed to mention it.)
But, not to worry, this book-writing thing is actually a lot easier than I thought.In fact, it turns out I already wrote a book!
I just didn’t know it.
(Don’t be alarmed, but it’s possible that this is a sign that I’m a ninja.)
You see, I got an email the other week from one of my readers – the super awesome Mario Lurig. Unbeknownst to me, he had converted all of the posts from my Best Of page into a fancy, schmancy eBook! And then he emailed it to me because that’s the kind of nice guy that he is.And because I’m also pretty nice myself and I like to share stuff (unless it’s cookies or chocolate or cake or unicorns… whatever, you get the point), I’m passing it along to you!
Because I like you!
And who needs money when there are plenty of perfectly nice bridges to live under?
All you have to do is click on the little link above that says “eBook,” which will take you to the page where you can download the file to your computer.The eBook is also available for purchase on Amazon or Barnes & Noble for a mere 99 cents if you’d like to download it directly to your eReader. (I would have offered it for free, but they wouldn’t let me. I assure you your money will go to a good cause — me! Well, actually only about 25 cents goes to me, but that’s 25 cents that I promise to use to make the world a better place… or at least make my world a better place by buying myself more beer and ice cream.)
Also, feel free to leave a review of my eBook on Amazon or Barnes and Noble if you’d like. Not that I’m telling you that you have to, but it would be really nice of you… and there does seem to be a whole niceness thing going around right now.And while you’re on the interwebz, please do check out Mario’s very helpful flight notification service called FlyTimeNotify.com. If you’re one of those people who actually plans your trips ahead of time (rather than at midnight the day before while hopped up on wine coolers and chocolate bars like some people), this website can let you know when your travel date becomes available for booking via email and text message. There is both a free and a paid service, and Mario, being the nice guy that he is, is offering my readers a special 50% off coupon. Just use the code: UNBRAVE5
So… now that I’ve already written a book, that means I’m off the hook for that book I was supposed to start writing this summer, right?
Because, uh, these episodes of Master Chef aren’t just going to watch themselves.
Ha, ha, just kidding.
Back to work.
(Right after I finish off this pint of ice cream.)
(And mop the kitchen floor.)
(And maybe take a nap.)
(Yes, another one. Stop giving me a hard time. This is just how ninjas work, okay?)
