My book is on sale now!

I am excited to announce that I have finally gotten my book copyrighted and put it up for sale on Amazon, as an ebook for the Kindle. I don’t know what will happen, but I am excited to find out. I’ve made one sale so far, which isn’t much, but it’s a beginning!

I have G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S. to thank, at least in part. I actually started the copyrighting process back in January, but it is a slow process. I received the notice of copyright just around the time I started participating in the scavenger hunt. One of the items on the list was “sell an ebook to Jeff Bezos”. I wasn’t going to try it because I wasn’t sure how to contact him, but in the end, I got my ebook set up and I sent and email to him. I did not get a reply, but it doesn’t matter. The hunt was an amazing experience and I managed to get my book posted for sale and that is what I am taking away here.

For those who don’t know (and didn’t click the link) GISHWHES is a crazy scavenger hunt started by actor and crazy person Misha Collins. Everyone is sectioned off into teams of 15 and after a few days of getting to know one another, the teams are given a list of over 100 items to obtain, create or accomplish, all of which must be filmed or photographed. Some of the items are relatively straightforward, like create a watercolor painting, but there is always a twist, like the people in the painting must be on rocking horses. There is a lot of interaction with one’s team and many of the items require interaction with the public, often with total strangers. This was outside my comfort zone and I did not do a lot of that kind, but I did push myself and make myself do some of the public things because having an experience was the main reason I signed up.

I am so glad I did! I made friends and memories that won’t soon be forgotten.
