Audiobook of “Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir” is now available!

First off, I apologize for only posting playlists and self-promotional entries lately. I promise to get back into a more regular blogging schedule soon. I’ve already been making some changes in my life to make that easier to do, which I’ll post about soon.

That said, my publisher would probably appreciate if I mentioned that the audiobook for “Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir” is now available to purchase on Audible.com. It’s read by Teri Clark Linden and it’s a great way to spend 8 hours and 22 minutes. Listen to it on the treadmill for inspiration!

Ok, end of promo. More blogging to resume soon.

I’m happy to announce that an audiobook version of Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir will be available at the end of August from Audible.com. If you’ve got 8 hours and 22 minutes free, I hope you’ll consider buying it. Great for road trips! Or for circling the blocks for hours and hours and hours.

In a strange coincidence, the narrator of my book, Teri Clark Linden, also narrated my friend Wendy’s book, The Wilder Life. We don’t have the same publisher, so it really is a coincidence. Teri has IMDB page that I’ve been pouring over and I think I might have to watch Jack Reacher now just to see her appearance as the night manager.

Also, I learned that “audiobook” is one word, not two. At least that’s how audible.com uses it, so I’m going with them on this one.

In case you’re wondering, there is not currently an audiobook version of my other book, Chocolate & Vicodin but I hope to have something to announce regarding that by the end [...]

Kindle edition of “Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir” is only $2.99 during February

The Kindle edition of my first book, Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir, is on sale for only $2.99 at Amazon for the month of February. Now’s a great time to buy a copy if you never got around to it before or if you only recently got an e-reader or if you just like buying things on sale.

(Sorry, Nook readers, I have no control over sale prices otherwise I’d give you guys a sale too.)

Edited to add: BTW, this is part of the monthly Amazon 100 promotion in which Amazon discounts 100 ebooks to $3.99 or less. There’s a good variety of books there, so you might find another good deal!

Thanks for the royalties

Twice a year my publisher sends me a royalty check. It’s always exciting, like getting a scratch-off lottery ticket that’s guaranteed to win. You just don’t know how much is waiting for you. It can vary by thousands of dollars from statement to statement, so I have no idea how much I’m going to get each time. I’m just glad I’ve been able to eek out a bit of a living from my writing and I never cease to be amazed by it. As a freelancer, I consider these checks to be like my Christmas bonus.

I am really grateful that my book Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir continues to sell even four and a half years after its initial publication. I watch what I spend my money on rather carefully, so it’s humbling to know someone (or multiple someones) decided my writing was worth their cash. If you’ve ever bought a copy of the book, thank you! I truly appreciate it. It does directly affect me and my ability to do things like fly home for [...]

Yes, I am being a total shill, but it’s the last day to grab HALF-ASSED for $0.99 on Kindle

Ok, I apologize for my shameless shilling in advance, but mama’s gotta’ pay the rent (and the wireless bill). I wanted to let you know today is the last day you can get Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir for $0.99 in the Amazon Kindle store. What I wanted to add is that you don’t need a Kindle to read Kindle books. You can download the free app for a computer or your phone. A surprising number of people I know read books on their phones, which I suppose makes sense if you commute a lot or you just get bored in line at the coffee shop. I’ve read several Kindle books on my computer and don’t mind it since I spend so much time at a computer anyway.

Shilling over. Regular blogging to resume shortly.

Oh, and my apologies to Nook users. I don’t have any control over book pricing, but I’d give you guys a sale too if I could!

I've suffered through soooooo many political ads this season, so I'm kinda glad to hear we've topped the nation in spending because it sure does feel like it.

I know not everyone will agree with me, but I think Kaci Hickox is pretty badass. I admire her for standing up to policies that are based on fear, not science.
