This all started as a bet with my parents.
I had a blue with my Dad a week or so ago, in those few days leading up to the last full moon when everybody had their crazy pants on. There was a lot of 'how dare you'-ing and 'you'll never amount to anything'-ness, alcohol was involved (not on my part) and it was generally messy and unpleasant.
In the heat of it all I may have rashly vowed to self-publish a book that very night. That didn't happen - I worked until 3am, then realised I had to be at work in five hours and was zombifying myself just to prove a point to my old man. But I said I'd do it, so I did it, and here it is.
The book in question is a compilation of the best bits of this here blog, updated and rewritten, with some new writing and all-new illustrations.
Now, the bet doesn't end here. Under the influence of the red mist, I may have said something about selling a hundred copies by Christmas.
Yeah nope, as we say in Australia.
It's $1.99, which won't even get you a chocolate bar in today's market. But it will get you 42 pages of fully-illustrated excellence, in pdf format for your reading pleasure. C'mon, it's two bucks.
