Buy This Book!
It is with tremendous pleasure and pride that I announce the publication of Raw Spewage, the first volume of posts collected from this blog. Raw Spewage can be purchased through Amazon by clicking on the cover image above. Please note: if you search for the book directly on the Amazon site, you will need to search by my name, not the title. (In creating the ISBN for the book, we used Must/Can’t/Will…Go On before deciding to go with the current title, but by then it was too late to change it. Lessons learned.)
I’m like a father swelling with pride (and some trepidation) at the sight of his grown child heading off to take on the world, though I can take as little credit or responsibility for the person he has become as I can control what happens to him. I just know that all my care and attention goes into creating and nurturing these posts like children in such a way that they are able to stand on their own. Like all authors, though, I depend on and appreciate the kindness of others I may never even know who take the writing into their care and, thus, to places unknown.
I must admit, this was not part of the plan when I started this blog, given that I have viewed Must/Can’t/Will…Go On more as a vehicle through which mainly to connect with myself. Eschewing all but the bare minimum of efforts (with the bare minimum of results) to connect with more readers, I have at least left open the possibility for connections to be made by posting these entries in a public space. I am greatly indebted to a couple of friends and loyal readers, Amanda Higginbotham and Shane Charanias, who saw enough potential to create a physical book from these posts via their own publishing concern. You rock, Amanda and Shane!
Every action opens the door to possibilities that can’t be foreseen. While I have eschewed all but the bare minimum of efforts (with the bare minimum of results) to connect with readers, I have at least left open the possibility for connections to be made by posting these entries in a public space. Publishing this book becomes another channel for my writing to make its way into the world and into the hands of readers who might not otherwise be aware of this blog’s existence.
