Booking It

Big News…

(drum roll)

I’M PUBLISHING A BOOK!

I’ve compiled about 200 pages of my writings into a manuscript. Many of the pieces have appeared on this blog, but much of it is brand new and only available in the book.

It’s a lot of the same kind of stuff, plus a really silly story about that time in college when we made a giant fireball.

The title is How to Raise Viking Children and Other Tales of Woe. I’m thinking it will be $12.95 and should be available on Amazon by Thanksgiving. It will make a great stocking stuffer – just sayin’.

And for those of you who attend local gaming and sci-fi conventions, I plan to debut my book at my author table at Starbase Indy this Thanksgiving weekend. It’s going to be a great time and I’ll be signing books and I’m sure to have a show-only special low price. Plus, you know, hugs.

The process of self-publishing a book has been really eye-opening for me. It seemed so simple but it’s been a real obstacle course. I’ll be sharing more details on my blog of the whole adventure in the coming days and weeks.

My favorite part so far is my pop-up banner for my author booth that just arrived today, so I thought I’d show it off…

I’m so excited! This is one of my longest held dreams, a total bucket list check-off.

Thank you all for the amazing support and encouragement!

  1. I am so excited for you and for well ME too! You will never know how wonderful (maybe you do or have heard) it is to find your blog in my inbox. It really makes a crappy day turn over a new leaf, if only for a giggle or two. Yes, a giggle….

  2. This is wonderful!! I’m so excited for you! Good for you doing the thing! I wish I was going to be there at Thanksgiving for giant hugs and a book signing, but I know it will be everything you’ve hoped for.

  3. Troy,

    This is awesome. Your stories are fantastic fun, humerous, and they relate to all of us as parents. I cant wait to see your incredible talent for expressing life in story form come alive. Good luck and Godspeed, my brother.

    Chris
