COADWG: The Book

Notice anything different about my blog? 
Maybe something over there on the right side?
Well the dream is becoming a reality and my book will be available October 31 or as I will be promoting it, Shifetober 31.
Here's a picture of the complete cover:

Here is the link to my Amazon Author page,
You will be able to order the electronic or paper book version there. Right now the paper book isn't available for pre-order because I need to review the proof but it will be up soon.
The paperback will sell for $10, and if you want a personalized copy just send me a message on the form on the right or send me an email at
For personalized copies, just send payment via PayPal and then I'll order a copy then mail it to you.
How does that sound?
This is exciting and stressful all at once but so far so good.
Finally in an effort to help spread the word, I will be having a contest in Shifetober and 4 lucky winners will get a personalized copy of the book as well as a special bookmark.
I'm not 100 percent on the contest but it will be probably be stuff like guess how many times the words Ambushed Paddington are mentioned in my book.
What do you think?
Well that's it for now. And a special thank you to the group of you who are regular visitors and make comments. I couldn't have done the book without you and for that you are mentioned by name in my Acknowledgements section. Does that sound like I'm trying to guilt you into buying my book? I hope not. =)
Any questions?

Have a good weekend.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.


  1. Well, that IS exciting!! Love the cover, but not sure why you used a picture of Kyle for the authors photo :) Looking forward to reading it.

  2. I'm smiling like a proud parent. I'm impressed and looking forward to reading it.

  3. Whoopee. Can't wait to read it. Hoping I can get it on Amazon UK. Love the cover, Matt. Did you design it?


  4. Yes, I can. Oooh that's exciting. Have put it in wish list.... roll on October so I can get reading.

  5. looks excellent. it's about time someone knocked that david sedaris guy off his high horse!

  6. Congratulations!! Did you self publish? If so, double, triple congratulations! I read here but don't comment very much, so I am not in the acknowledgements, but I will buy a copy anyway! ;)

  7. Dang! Congratulations, man! I've "known" you so long, and this is really and accomplishment. The doctor is proud of you!

  8. Well, I'm not a regular reader... but, I have been 'round occasionally. ;)
    Congrats on your book!!

  9. Groovy man, I'm glad it's all coming to fruition for you.

    (Fruition was the word from my word a month club, I couldn't keep up with the word a week club, so I knew the word a day club was out of the question.)

  10. I can't wait! I'll be ordering a personalized copy of the paperback of course! But that has to wait for pay day. (How sad to be so broke!)
    You always brighten my day, Shife.
