Count Down to Book Launch!

Hello minions!

It’s been many moons – hundreds, in fact – since last I posted on this blog site. Many of you have rightly asked if I’m still alive. The good news is that I am indeed still alive. Why then the resounding year-and-a-half-long silence? I have a great excuse, I promise:

I have been writing the official Why? Because Science book! Here’s a sneak peak at the provisional cover… Why- Because Science (2).jpgIn just over two weeks’ time – on the 1st December 2017 – I will be launching it on Amazon. To begin with, the book will be in kindle/electronic format only. Once I have raised the necessary funds, I’ll be able to launch a print-to-order enterprise, which means hard copies! It’s a step-by-step process that’s utterly terrifying and satisfying at the same time. Very much like nipple clamps.

Keep an eye on this space and thank you so much for your loyalty over the years!

Domain Eukarya, kingdom Animalia (Metazoa), phylum Chordata, class Mammalia, order Primates, family Hominidae, genus Homo, species Homo sapiens, subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens... essentially. I have a Master's Degree in Atmospheric science, which doesn't entitle me to be generous with my opinion, but my sense of self importance does! I love writing, I love science, I love reading, but I'm not nuts about long walks on the beach. Short to medium walks are preferable. This is my blog and I have something important to say: https://whybecausescience.wordpress.com/

  1. I’ll let every science-loving person that I know know about this book.
    And every humor-loving person that I know know about this book.

    I’ll also let any flat-Earthers or crabby people that I know (I’m sure I must know a few, probably more the latter) know about this book.

    Congratulations on writing a book! This is great news!

    1. You’ve been there from the start, Patrick! I’m actually putting together a pre-release list of people who will be receiving a free electronic copy of the book. In exchange, I’ll be asking these people to help me promote the book once it’s launch (and leave a review). You wanna play? Send me your email and I’ll put you on the list!

  2. Hope the final cover is very close to the provisional one.  The subtitle is hilarious, and the title is the first time I have seen a good use of a fake cursive font.  It’s also the best fake cursive I have seen.

    1. Hey, thanks for the feedback! The GOOD news is that the final cover is very close to the provisional one… but I have changed the “fake cursive” font to something else. It just didn’t feel right. I’ll be posting it soon so *watch this space!*

  3. Hey —! I remember you … ye gods, has it been that long already? My, how the decades fly by these days …

    Now get out there and knock ’em dead! (Even more better, make enough bucks to fund the next dozen. Boom boom~!)

  4. Who are you again?… 🙂 Congrats on the science book – I figured you’d write one sooner or later! I’ll buy it. And yeah, the whole process is a bit like having a delicate body part slammed in a door, but that’s publishing for ya…

    1. Haha! Good to see you’re still around, too! I’m self-publishing and I feel like a deer in the headlights… but I’m committed to throwing this book at the virtual ether and seeing what happens 🙂

    1. Hahaha! Thaaaank you! Do you want to join the pre-release list to be one of the first to read the book (for free)? All I ask is that you then leave a review on Amazon and help me promote it through your social media channels 🙂 If so, pop me your email!
