When I had dinner with my mother last Friday night, she asked me a straightforward question, but it made me pause.
She asked, “What exactly do you want us to do?”
I looked at her.
“With your book,” she said. “There is the blog and the Kickstarter (which hasn’t started yet) and the Facebook and the this and the that. But what do you want us to do right now?”
There could be no confusion! I thought. But if my mother needed to ask, perhaps I should spell it out. Perhaps I don’t have this blogging thing down quite yet.
I’m doing what I’ve longed to do for years — independently publishing my book, my labor of love and joy. There are several phases of this project.
Right now, the current phase is: Building a base, a community, so as to best find the interested patrons who might support my endeavor as well as to find the readers for whom Double Happiness was written.
Right now, if you have a minute, please:
- Visit www.facebook.com/DoubleHappy
- “Like” the page.
- Click on the gearwheel and “Share” the page.
Voila! That’s it. That would be amazing and would help get the word out to all who will find the writing in Double Happiness useful, engaging, funny, or interesting. Little things are rarely little things. Something was said once about a butterfly flapping its wings in China.
There will be more phases in the very near future, things almost too exciting for me to type out here. I’m about to jump out of this plane I’ve been riding in safely for about a decade. I hope you will be a small part of my parachute.
