Recently, I tried something new and unfamiliar. I contributed to a chapter in a book! Well, actually an e-book. It’s called Previously Awesome.
My good friend Philip Wels (apatheticthursday.net) wrote a book full of humorous stories which usually poke fun at himself while taking an amusing look at everyday life as well as more nerdy subjects such as video games and computers. If you like the style of humor found in works by Douglas Adams, Scott Adams, John Hodgeman, or David Thorne, I highly recommend this book. Even if you haven’t heard of them.
For those of you who own Kindles, you can even borrow the book for free from Amazon. So if you have a Kindle you have no excuse not to check it out. If you’re not sure you can even read a sample on the book’s site. I don’t normally advertise for things here, but I also don’t normally contribute to books (full disclosure: I’m don’t get any proceeds from the book for my contribution).
My chapter is called “Birthday Party”. Like the rest of the book, it may or may not contain references to real events.
Here’s Phil’s post about the book:
