World’s Strongest Librarian is Three Years old Today. New Short Story, My Novel for $2.99, and More

I celebrated by pressing a log

It’s hard for me to believe, but this goofy little blog is three years old. Nearly every day for the last three years I’ve written here.

This site has changed my life, but that was never the goal.

I write because it’s fun, because it helps me figure out who I am, because it pays for my gas (most months), and because of you.

Without the support of the readers, I’d still write, but I wouldn’t love it the way I do.

By way of celebration and thank you:

The Knot

To thank you, I’m dropping the price of my novel The Knot down to $2.99 on Kindle. It’s about a 103 year old man, a talking frog that may or may not be real, an aspiring (and awful) romance novelist, and an apocalyptic talk show finale.

It’s a fun book, but keep in mind that I wrote it nearly ten years ago. I’m proud I finished it. It taught me more about writing than anything else has, but perfect…it ain’t. If you like me, you’ll probably like at least some of the book. How’s that for the hard sell!

Buy it here.

Short Story: Under The Creek

Here is a short story I’m releasing called Under The Creek. It’s part of a loosely connected collection of non-gruesome horror tales that will all be filed under: Stories From a Bad Town. I’ll be dripping these out a couple of times each month.

I’ll give you the first line:

“Johnnie, Mom says the sun’s not going to come up tomorrow. She says it’s just done.”

How to read Under the Creek

I put it on Kindle for $2.99, which is the cheapest price they’ll allow (other than free).

Get it on Kindle.

Thank you as always. It’s been a fun three years. I suspect the best is yet to come.

    I am totally getting your book on my Kindle. I shall be the first book I have ever read on my Kindle. Congrats on three years of WSL mayhem! Keep it up!

      “It” not “I” (although “I shall be the first book I have ever read on my Kindle” is its own interesting sentence and concept).

    Feliz Aniversario, my friend! I already have “the knot”. I am downloading “under the creek” this Friday. Doing what you love is the only way to do it. Anything else is slavery. Deserve has nothing to do with it (Mr. Clint Eastwood).

    Nothing like a little self-help paraphernalia to start the morning. Don’t you agree?

    So very proud to be Mrs. World’s Strongest Librarian. You’re an inspiration, Josh.
