Default Hey guys, I wrote a novel! And its out today.

Excuse this thread of self promotion, but considering I spend much of my time trolling this board (on a daily basis), I do feel apart of a community and would like to share something that’s incredibly important to me with you guys (and gals).

I wrote a novel! And someone was dumb enough to publish it! And it came out today. I promise you this is hardly some boring math textbook, or some non-fiction book about obscure 14th century French history. It’s a fun fiction book that would probably be the perfect companion for an international flight.

Here is the Amazon link (it will also be available in Kindle in the next few weeks, if you prefer that.) And look for it at Barnes and Noble and other bookstores in the coming months. http://www.amazon.com/My-Sweet-Saga-...7102074&sr=8-1

If nothing else, it would mean the world to me if you could “like” the book on Facebook, where I can annoy you with updates in hopes that you buy it soon. http://www.facebook.com/pages/My-Swe...710646?sk=wall

And I apologize if I bump this, Mods please don’t kick it to one of those sub folders nobody reads.

Support a fellow maner? I promise there are no commie rants in it. But there's some sex, boobs, and cursing. We like those things right?

** The kindle version should be avail in 3 weeks I'm told. I don't know why its not avail now.

Congratulations. Actually finishing a novel is quite a feat. Actually getting it published is just amazing.

I think the guy with the best name on the Mane deserves a little support. As long as he promises to add some commie rants into his second novel....

Very cool, Son of Le-lo, very cool indeed!

Very cool, sir. I'm attempting to write one myself (been at it for about a year now), and finishing one is no small feat, let alone actually finding a publisher. Good job

Thanks guys! Unfortunately the larger publishing houses balked at it, as they do with most lad-lit these days, though i had many conversations with Harper Collins about it, but an indie picked it up.

I hope you buy it and enjoy it!

Getting published is pretty cool. I'd buy it but I haven't read a non-technical book since college.

That is really cool! No small feat writing it and getting it published. The editorial review was interesting and I will try and pick it up. Good luck!

If you want to save time and feel accomplished, shoot me the .doc file and I'll plaster it on Pirate boards. You've not made it until someone's pirating your work.

Whatever, I only read 14th century French history (drop weapon, run away, rinse, repeat, fart in your general direction, taunt you a 2nd time).




PS Congrats!

Congrats! I think the only other poster on here that got published was TheRev.

It's an inexpensive book, and man we need to get you higher than # 20,550 on the Amazon best seller list.

Congratulations, Brett. I've always felt like I have a little novelist inside of me, but I never pursued it. This may give me the motivation to actually do something about it....

MHGaffney is always hawking his conspiracy book. However, it's a conspiracy book. Therefore, it doesn't count...

Grats dude! Can you send me a signed, first print copy, along with a lock of hair?

Haha! Seriously though, nice work, maybe I will pick it up. I just don't read much.
