Okay people, the paperback version is now out on Createspace. It will be 5-7 days before it goes on Amazon, and all the other sites where Createspace distributes my books.
I will let you all know when I hear about Smashwords and the Premium catalog. This time around I am going to let them distribute my ebook to all of the sites, instead of self-distributing it to the Kindle store and the Nook store.
That being said, I highly recommend purchasing from these sites. They are safe and secure, and by doing so you will be supporting me and all the other indie authors who use these services to publish their books.
Thank you all for your support---especially all of my friends and family who have supported me in writing this and listened to me babble about it, time and time again. I really appreciate your support. I especially appreciate the support of my wife, who has been so supportive and understanding and has really been the one to keep pushing me to keep working on it and to think about things like the design from a different perspective. I know I can be difficult to work with! I love you!
This is a day I have been working towards for nine years---it is actually very surreal. It is going to take me a while to get used to the idea that this book is actually finished, and that I can begin to move on---that I can focus on my thesis and grad school and teaching and getting this shit done! I will also be spending time finding new, creative ways to promote this book and try to extend my reach.
Anyways, I am rambling---when is that any different, right---and I need to get to work. Thank you all again, and please, if you do purchase it and like it, please write me a review on whatever site where you bought it or Goodreads.
