I was going to post some quotes to recent comments/reviews of my book but instead I decided to post this photo of me staring at you.
Probably if you were gonna read my book you’ve read it already and if you’re not gonna read my book, well, you’ve made up your mind.
Who am I to try to change your mind?
Oh, “Just What I Needed” by The Cars is on the radio. I had a short-lived ska-punk band in high school and this is pretty much the only song we covered. The synth was replaced by a single trumpet and I sang. Up until this point, I’d never heard my voice singing on a recording. After hearing what I sounded like during a take of this song, I’d realized I must be tone deaf or something. I couldn’t believe no one had ever told me how bad I am at singing. And I’m not talking about, like, “one of those people who’s actually good but hates their own voice” kind of ones. I mean that I literally can’t pick a note out of the air and replicate it with my voice in any way. I can’t stay in a key whatsoever. Even friends attempting to tell me I’m not so bad have ultimately admitted, “Yeah, you can’t sing at all.”
I think my book’s alright. I have no real idea what “alright” is, but I know other people have liked it, which is why I was going to quote other people’s thoughts on it in the first place. I have no idea how to describe my book while selling it, but I can steal other people’s opinions about it and throw them in your face.
Anyway, my book is Sad Robot Stories and you can download the free ebook, buy the ebook (why pay when there’s free?!) or buy a physical, handmade copy.
