Yes, it’s finally here. Well, almost.
I am not trying to do a promotional teaser campaign thing. Well, I am, but it is more due to technical setbacks than marketing genius. Monday is the day I get most traffic on my blog, which is why I decided to unravel my book today. But, it will take about 24 hours to be available on the Kindle Store. However, keeping that information aside and quoting Kate Bush…
Wow…ooh Wow…ooh Wow…ooh Wow…ooh Wow…ooh Wow ooh! Unbelievable!
I published Of Opinions – the book!
After first coming up with the idea in 2012, deciding to blog it in 2013, blogging it with full fervour 2014 onwards, writing the first draft in 2015, it is now here, in 2017. I cannot express my relief and joy enough.
And gratitude. Thank you, for making this happen. Your support is a gift and a privilege in my life. I really couldn’t have done it without you.
What to expect from Of Opinions – the book? Well, first of all, it’s officially called just Of Opinions, as it is on the cover. It is subtitled “Essays on Life, Love and Loneliness”. But, you don’t need to worry much about that since I will be updating details on this very blog post itself, and subsequently on further blog posts and the website.
In the book, you will find essays exactly the same as you find here. It’s a sort of alternate takes on the ‘Greatest Hits’ and some new stuff. It’s motley, it’s madness. If you like reading this blog, you can hazard the chance of liking this book.
And maybe sharing it with people you know who don’t read the blog (wow, wasn’t that subtle?). You’ve all spoiled me, so I am going to depend further on your kindness. Whether it’s on your social media, or just word of mouth, if you could tell someone this exists, and the author’s writing isn’t, you know, certifiably sh*t, that would be great.
This is a completely DIY project, but almost three years of generous feedback from hundreds of people have helped shape it. I am so glad, and proud of the fact that I am able to share this moment with them. With you.
