When I am capable of speech again, I’ll come back and type up a better post than this. Today, this is all I’ve got:

I sold my book and now I’m allowed to announce it. The World’s Strongest Librarian will be published by Gotham Books (Is that not an awesome name?) in 2013.

Why oh why did it happen? Not just because I write, but because you read.

I love you all.

More details to come.

    That’s AMAZING news!! Glad to have been there throughout the process ๐Ÿ™‚ Remember when this blog just came to reality, you’ve put in a substantial amount of work and you deserve the praise!

    • Josh Hanagarne October 26, 2011, 6:24 pm

      Thank you Robby. I’ll be writing about the entire process as I go. I think you’ll get a kick out of the insider’s view, although I’ll have to keep a lot of things vague.

    Hell Yes! Congrats brother can’t wait to see it. That thing should sell a million copies. Let me know when you need press we’ll do an interview.

    • Josh Hanagarne October 26, 2011, 6:25 pm

      Thank you Casey. I’m sure if you interview me it will easily sell a million copies THAT DAY.

  • Sue October 26, 2011, 3:59 pm

    Congratulations! I enjoy reading what you write. Looking forward to reading your next book.

    • Josh Hanagarne October 26, 2011, 6:24 pm

      Thank you Sue. This one is going to be…quite a bit better.

  • Bryce October 26, 2011, 8:17 pm

    Well done sir. I’m fairly certain that it will not disappoint, however, I’ll pass along my favorite words of wisdom: “good work, now don’t fยฅ^k it up!!” congrats bro, that’s awesome:)

  • Frances Ruth Harris October 27, 2011, 5:41 am

    No WAY, that’s AWESOME! I will definitely pick up a copy as soon as it comes out. It totally deserves a place in my own personal library ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can’t wait to read it!

  • Srinivas October 27, 2011, 8:47 am

    Heck YA :). I can say i knew you way back when. I assume we can snag you for a BlogcastFM interview as a part your promotional plan?. Can’t wait to read it Josh. That’s so awesome and inspiring to see.

  • Michelle October 27, 2011, 9:28 am

    This is just awesome.

    • Josh Hanagarne October 27, 2011, 9:44 am

      Pretty cool, isn’t it? I’ve no doubt that a year from now I’ll be a punchline trainwreck diva like Lindsey Lohan, but hopefully it will be a fun year.

  • Milo October 27, 2011, 10:23 am

    Brilliant news Josh, and actually I was surprised it took this long as you’ve always had such a great story *and* great way of telling it. Plus the knowledge that Bruce Wayne is (probably) funding it must make it even better.

    • Josh Hanagarne October 27, 2011, 3:54 pm

      It is all the sweeter knowing that the vigilante billionaire playboy is lurking in darkness, waiting to take out my foes.

    Cool! I was going to say, let us know when it’s out, but of course you’ll do that. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Mary Jo Manzanares October 29, 2011, 10:05 pm
