Superbowl 45 and a new book (Maybe)

The Packers are going to the Superbowl. That's great news for me and not so much for Jay Quitter or Bears fans. (Steelers fans also?)

It's been a long time sense it's happened and I can't wait to see it happen again. Green bay is home of title town because of it's 12 NFL titles. No NFL team has more than Green Bay. It's time to bring Lombardi back home where he belongs.

Now comes the superstitious side of me. A while ago my Uncle told me an interesting fact. About every 30 years Green Bay wins the title. That's simply not accurate but when I was younger it seemed accurate. However, I'm still being very superstitious right now. I've never been this way. But I wore a Packer's shirt I had gotten for Christmas the day Green Bay beat the Eagles in the Wild Card round. I left it unwashed, and wore it the day Green Bay decimated the #1 seed Falcons. Once again, I left it unwashed and wore it Sunday when Green Bay walked into Soldier field and won the biggest game of the Green Bay/Chicago rivalry history.

Now it's been 13 years since Green Bay has been to the Superbowl. Unlucky 13. Last time they went, they lost to Denver and John Elway. Our chance to win our 13th NFL title and we lost to a guy that couldn't win a single one.

Now 13 years later we return again for a chance to win our 13th title.

Yeah, I'm a bit scared. I'll be even more scared come Superbowl Sunday.

Now for that other book. Almost two years ago I had written a script for someone and like many scripts, I assumed it would turn into nothing. I just got an e-mail saying the book was half way done and he wanted me to keep writing it ongoing. I'm game so we'll see what happens. The book is supposed to be out this year, once it's ready to have announcements, I'll make some.

Shipping change

There is a change to shipping now. I had been charging $2 for shipping and that is not the case anymore. It's not $4.95.

Between gas money, buying envelopes, weight variations and the service of the post office. $2 is just not a safe move for me now. I've looked into paypal to alter the shipping cost for multiple items, but I can't find a way to do that. And the past month I've sent out quite a few packages and a couple have went MIA. So I'm opting now for Priority mail. It's flat rate shipping and I can fit more than one copy in it. Sorry for the change, I wish I didn't have to do it, but I need to bring some kind of money in to continue the dream. I'm taking enough of a loss on the book itself and I can't continue to take a loss on shipping. I realize that'll prevent some and maybe all from buying a hard copy until I get another book completed.

I can tell you though that all copies come bagged and boarded. And they will all be signed also. If you want it personalized, leave a note when you make the purchase and I will do that also.

And if you're interested in supporting me buy don't want to pay for hard copy, you can always hit the donate button as well, it saves on shipping and I appreciate anything you're interested in donating.

To buy a copy.

To donate.

Order Growing Pains Today

Growing Pains is now officially available for order.

All copies will be signed.

Growing Pains has nothing to do with the tv show. I thought the name was fitting for the book. But' I'm perfectly ok with the extra attention. No publicity is bad publicity.

It's a coming of age story about (Tyler Kirk) growing without his father in his life. Soon into Tyler's life, his father is taken from him, now Tyler goes on a journey to get justice for his father, while being obsessed with not becoming his father.

The book cost $4 and the shipping will cost $2. So you're paying $6 total. I will ship the books out right around January 5th, but it also depends when I get them.

If you live outside of the US and want a copy e-mail me and I'll do my best to get a copy to you at a fair price for both of us.

I'll be taking a loss on this book so If you want to buy it at your local shop ask your retailer to order a copy from me directly. The only one that will take a loss is me.

If you're new to the site you can read the book for free here (The buy a copy).
