If you haven't written a book, you might not know that publishers sent authors a certain number of 'author copies' of their book so that the author can do with them what he sees fit.
Yesterday I came home to find a padded envelope waiting for me. I hadn't ordered anything, so I had no idea what it was. I ripped it open and what did I see before me? This. Awesome, right?
Fast forward to today. I come home and find a box waiting for me. A heavy box. I didn't recall ordering any lead via the Internet, so I was pretty sure what would be waiting for me in the box. That's right, 24 copies of my book.
This whole writing a book thing is pretty cool. I recommend you do it sometime!
