A quarter score and two years ago my cousin brought forth unto this great nation a new novel conceived in the dark recesses of her mind and dedicated to the proposition that all books are created equal… or not.
OK… enough of that. Translation: Laura wrote a cool book about seven years ago. Whether she had dreams of it being published someday is only known to her. What is known to the rest of us is that approximately six years after writing it, she began working with me to start Orange Publishing with the express mission to publish this book (and others if we were successful). There’s been a lot of work done, many hours spent on this labor of love, and numerous milestones along the way, but on June 1, 2013 the event for which all humankind (at least in our minds it’s all of humankind) has been waiting occurred: the official print edition release of Crumbling Walls. That’s right. All versions of the book are now available and being shipped.
So, remember, the only thing we have to fear is fear of not selling enough books. Please help us out by getting yourself a copy if you haven’t yet and be sure to tell all of your friends, family, co-workers, random people you pass on the street, that guy who is ahead of you in line at the coffee shop, the cop who pulls you over for speeding even though you weren’t speeding and there is obviously something wrong with his radar, the telemarketer who calls to try to sell you life insurance, the teller at the bank (does anyone still go inside banks?), the cashier at the grocery store, that cute guy/girl you’re hitting on right now, your neighbor who doesn’t cut their grass in a timely manner (sorry to admit it, but that’s actually me), the person who will cut you off while merging onto the freeway tomorrow (hopefully this is NOT me), Ellen Degeneres, my mom, your mom, his mom, her mom, your mom’s mom, your mom’s mom’s best friend, your grandma, the lady that gives your grandma her perm, the mom of the lady who gives your grandma a perm, Ellen Degeneres’s mom, the person who cuts Ellen Degeneres’s mom’s hair, Phil, Mike, Lori, Keisha, Henry… well you get the point… to go buy a copy now.
Thanks everyone. You are all the awesomest people ever.
Don’t forget we have a book signing at Book-a-Million at Park City Mall in Lancaster, PA.
