365 Challenge: Day 235 – Paperback

Posted on

Paperback: a soft-covered version of words in a book that people read

About three (3) weeks ago, my debut novel was published in electronic form, available for sale via Amazon. Earlier this week, the paperback version was officially released and is also now available for sale via Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS

I am extremely excited to share this news. I waited a few days to announce it as I wanted to get the book in my hands and start reading it, but someone beat me to it. I won’t have my own copy until Saturday — isn’t that amusing! It worked out as this person was able to confirm the proper version, edit/format and look-n-feel, enabling me to let everyone know it’s officially in multiple versions. It’s a larger paperback, too, about the same size as a typical hardcover. As of today, between Amazon and Goodreads, I have over 40 book reviews, averaging a 4.8 out 5 on the star-ratings scale. I am grateful for everyone’s support, positive feedback and promotion for the upcoming blog tour which will kick off on Sunday 11/5. See the schedule below. Thank you!!!

REMINDER: Tomorrow kicks off my new ‘Author Alert’ segment with our debut author spotlight. As a small teaser: He’s a fellow blogger… I just started reading his book this week… and you may already have chatted with him! The post will launch at 11am EST tomorrow. I’m excited to kick this one off with a special 365 Daily Challenge Word and a new logo to use on Fridays for the Author Alert segment.

About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.

      Thank you so much! I am excited reading them, wondering who grasps on to which characters. I’m sending a poll out later today to pick favorite characters… I am really curious to see what everyone thinks!

      I did confirm we are not doing translations immediately, it might be in mid 2018. But it should be available for sale in Germany. I’m trying to see how I can get bulk copies too, hopefully at a discount, so I can sign and share in the future.

      Hi. Both the e-version and paperback version are available. If you have Kindle Unlimited, it’s $0 of course. Which Amazon site are you using?

        Hahahha. Don’t have any Amazon Malaysia, most probably it’s US or UK site. I guess I’ve to try to search it on my own, can’t use your link. I can’t see there any eBook available.

    Congratulations once again James. As you know already I loved your book and I have been telling people about it as much as possible. When I saw the paperback was available and went and added to my Amazon cart unfortunately it will have to sit there for a little bit before I can buy but I will eventually get a physical copy of it!!

    Please read my book too. I am a beginner so a review would really help me. It is available on Amazon-“COMPLICATED US”.

    Please read it. It would mean a lot to me.
