As my sister pointed out, having the first day of my unemployment include selling copies of something that I created on my own time because it was a story I wanted to tell… well, that’s not such a bad way to begin being unemployed.
I imagine that the vast majority of the people who bought the book today are people that know me in my real life, but at least one of the purchases is a complete mystery. And that’s extra awesome. Both that I have the amazing friends that I do, and that someone completely random picked it up because it looked alright for $2.99.
Also kind of awesome that already, I have a friend who identifies so strongly with the book that he went out and got the tattoo. I’m kind of flabbergasted in an honored kind of way.
Not so bad for a first day of not going to work. Now, not to get my hopes up that tomorrow is going to see another seven copies purchased. I’d like that, but I’m trying to keep my expectations in check. These things take a long time to build up momentum and I’m grateful to have had a start at all.
Having said all of that, if you want to add to my tally, the book is here.
