Holy crap. I’m a published author.

First impressions:

  1. Good god, it’s thick. Like a textbook. You could probably use it as a murder weapon.
  2. Why was THAT my first thought?
  3. Every flaw, no matter how small, is immediately evident to me. Agontime’s image came out too dark. I was too hard on Josephine Baker. On and on, endlessly. It’s taken 24 solid hours of intensive support from my friends to get me to back down from a panic attack.
  4. I’m going to blog about that soon. There’s a lot about the process, and myself, that I’ve kept offline. I need to not be afraid to be more of a person.
  5. It’s a hell of an artifact. It’s worth the money.
  6. This would make a great book to have in your bathroom, for like 1-2 minute reads at a time.
  7. Why did I think THAT? What is wrong with you, brain?
  8. This book is a reflection of me. This is worthwhile. Flaws and all.
9) I keep forgetting I have green hair now.

    We’ve ordered a copy for our daughter to grow up with, working up the ratings over the next decade or so seems a more reasonable pace looking at the size of it.

    I have already had a discussion with the book buyer at my local independent bookstore. ;-) She is well aware this Must Be Stocked. Now to go see if you’re doing any signing tours…

  • Nicki G

    Congrats! I know that is a culmination of all your hard work!

    Hey Jason! I’m looking forward to my surprise customized autograph! :) I think my Princess textbook is gonna be awesome, and personally my poor ass is looking forward to reading it. Everyone is hard on themselves, it’s part of life’s process – but you’ve done something that leaves your imprint in history. And that’s saying something. :)
