I finally did it! (angels sing)
My first ever book, How to Raise Viking Children and Other Tales of Woe, is now available! Like, officially. For realsies. You can get more details and even purchase a copy directly on my (very ugly) self-publishing eStore.
If you’d like a signed copy — because CLEARLY I am a famous author whose signature is VERY valuable (eyeroll) — I plan to get a table at many of the geeky conventions around Indiana/Ohio. You can always grab a signed copy and probably a healthy “show-only” discount, plus no shipping costs! I’ll be posting all the dates/locations of those opportunities on social media. And if you can’t make it to a con, just contact me and we’ll work something out.
Most of all, thank you to all my friends and family who have hounded me for years to create a book. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Peace and Love!

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!
