About eight months ago, I started writing a novel called Jewball. About four months after that, I announced that I'd be publishing it myself. And now, today, October 11, 2011, Jewball officially exists, at least in digital form. You can download it here, for only $4.99. (You can also purchase the paperback by clicking "Add to Bag" at right –Ed.)
If I may offer my biased opinion, I really think you should buy a copy. Not because it's the culmination of my dreams, or because it's the book I always wanted to write, though both those things are true. Lots of people dream of writing a book, many people do, and often those books aren't very good. While I can't say for certainty that Jewball is very good--I can't be objective on that score--I do know that it's a funny, breezy, exciting read, and that it absolutely stacks up with books put out by conventional publishing entities. I worked with great editors and a fantastic cover designer and made sure that Jewball reads and feels like something put out by a professional. There's pride and love on every page, and I hope you all can sense that.
If you'd download a copy, I'd be extremely grateful. If you'd tweet and Facebook about it, I'd be even more grateful. This isn't a book that's going to move via traditional channels. Its success won't and can't be easily quantified. But if the Internet does what it does best--spread the word about things that are awesome--then Jewball stands a chance in the glutted digital marketplace.
So enjoy the book, and, if you feel like it, help a brother out. Thanks so much. See you on the court, and hopefully not in court.
