This is a day that I have long anticipated. A day that should have come weeks, or months ago. But never mind the delays and the changes of mind and that point where I (temporarily, thankfully) abandoned the project altogether. The book is done. And ready for consumption.
I need to thank my wife. She was, until very recently, the only other person who had read what I had written, and was often subjected to my consternation and impatience when she had the audacity to make good, sound, rational suggestions about how to improve the text. And then she quickly and competently edited the mess.
And Trent Jameson, coworker and friend, also needs to be thanked. He designed the cover, and went the extra mile in laying out the interior as well. The book is much better on the eyes because of his efforts. Well done.
I re-read some of the book last night. Why? I have no idea. I can’t tell any more if it’s entertaining or even coherent. To my eyes, it is just rambling black and white. But I welcome your feedback. Any reviews or thoughts that you want to post on your blog, please do. Send me those posts, and I’ll link to those pages, and include an excerpt of the review here. If you don’t blog, send me an email. I really do want to know what you think—good or bad. I’m hoping that this project is the first of many more to come. And it will be, assuming I can improve and learn and… think of something new to write about next (time for more adventures!).
Right now the book is available in print, and as a digital PDF. I will have an ePub edition soon.
So, yeah. Go buy your copy of Mythical and Tangible: Tales of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Singletrack.
