I felt like this email could use more pictures. So, the picture above is going to be the new header. I hope you like it. It’s my old dog, Fifi, with her favorite toy. She’s looking out the window because she knows the mailman is coming.
And as you well know, dogs fucking hate the mailman.
I don’t know the artist’s name. I hired her off of Fiverr (you can do the same here
) because I needed an image for my Buy Me a Coffee page. So that’s where this image has lived for a few months now.
But I gotta be honest, I love this image so much that I knew I had to find a better use for it.
There’s a lesson in here about repurposing your old content. I’ll let you figure out what that is.
Also: I finished “The Richest Man in Babylon: Championship Edition”. There are going to be some last-minute punch-ups because I am constantly tweaking things until the very last second, but my end of things is done.
I’m hoping we can get through all the production stuff fairly quickly.
That would mean the book would be available in May in print and electronically, and then in Audiobook not long after that.
Fun fact: I make more money selling audiobook versions of my work than anything else. So that’s why every book I write now is only 20,000 words.
That’s about three hours-ish of an audiobook. Long enough to cover most flights and commutes in one round trip. So, just a tip for my fellow authors and writers out there. The money is in the audiobooks.
Oh, by the way: I’m going to ask Sophia Bush, star of “Good Sam” on CBS to voice the audiobook for “Richest Man in Babylon: Championship Edition”.
I love her voice. She was also my very first celebrity interview, back when I thought journalism would be a secure field to get into. I interviewed Sophia, by phone, in my college dorm room. Even then I knew I had to get her to voice something.
Don’t get your hopes up. The odds are great she’ll say no. But I am going to ask anyway.
You never know, right?
