Ok, time for some shameless self-promotion.

Rough Draft

The above picture is the printed manuscript of my next book, “Epiphanies, Theories, and Downright Good Thoughts…made while being single.”

It’s longer than a few pages, I assure you, so don’t let the angle of lens fool you.

With the first draft finally in hand, I’m a little on edge as the countdown to the release date begins. It’s been a long road for book #2 in this series; a road that I thought would culminate last July 2012 (yes, it’s been that long), but it’s really been worth it. THere’s an old Chinese proverb that says the “journey is the reward”, but I feel whoever said that never really finished anything in life. They must have kept trucking along; hopeful that when they looked back on their life, they’d be happy at what they left behind them. In reality, most journeys are arduous undertakings. The hours in which we travel are long, never passing how we would prefer and our goals beckon at us to come closer even if we are completely unable to do so. That being said, I don’t always buy into the “journey is the reward” talk. The reward is merely how you perceive your labor whilst along that journey. For me, I’ve honestly enjoyed putting in the hours, making the edits, and carefully remaking more edits. My reward is the elation I feel over doing what I love to do: tell stories. Stories that I hope others find to be entertaining, but enlightening as well.

So I’ll end this with a “stay tuned for more” message as I work towards a release date. There’s still some final edits to be made.
