It’s Time! My Book Is Available for Pre-Order

Dear reader,

Whether this is your first visit, or you’ve been here with me for nearly four years, this is the one of the most exciting and humbling days of my life. I hope you’ll be excited too.

My book, The World’s Strongest Librarian: A Memoir of Tourette’s, Faith, Strength, and The Power of Family is now available for pre-order.  We’ve come a long way since this little blog’s early days.

I haven’t enjoyed many things as well as I’ve enjoyed writing this blog and interacting with you all.  You’ve made my life better, and as you’ve built me up, I hope you’ve gotten something out of your time here as well.

In any case, thank you. Here’s the book trailer, which I am now authorized to share:

And now, voila!  Listed below, in alphabetical order, are the current destinations where you can pre-order the book, which will be released on May 2, 2013.  A lot of the book is about my relationship with my dear old mom, and I’m thrilled that it will be released just before Mother’s Day.

If you buy one, I will of course sign your copy and sing your praises from as many rooftops as I can clamber onto.

If you lose track of this post, you can always click on the cover of the book which will displayed over there in the sidebar from now on.

Please do me a favor and share this post wherever you spend time online.  There will of course be more to come, and I’ll be releasing additional information, including the book trailer, very soon.

Oh, and my birthday is next week, so if you hadn’t decided what to get me yet, I think this might be appropriate.  Thanks for sticking with me for so long.  I’ve been working on the book in one way or another for four years now.  It’s hard for me to believe it’s finally at this point.

If you’ve been here for a while, you know much I read.  And now I can say in all seriousness that I have a new favorite book–and I wrote it, which makes me happier than I can say.

THANK YOU for your support, friendship, and for giving me something that I look forward to every day.

With all my heart, thank you.

      Thanks Jodi. By the way, we’re going roller skating for my birthday. You’re all invited.

    Consider it pre-ordered! Can’t wait to read it, especially since we’ve been with you through the gestational portion of this adventure. I also shared it on Facebook. Good luck, Josh!

    Hi Josh! WOW! I’m so happy for you that your book is about out! I’m so excited to read it!!! I’ll be pre-ordering it and of course, I would like to have it signed by you. I’ll be purchasing all books you write and they will have their own shelf in my personal library!

    Happy Birthday, kiddo (and yes, I know which day it is!)! I love you more than you’ll ever be able to fathom! ~Teena
