Friday night I undertook another marathon session with Amazon's CreateSpace to put together the release of The Whole Bloody Affair, a.k.a. The Complete Yoshimi.
And you can thank Miley Cyrus for that. You may have heard a thing or two about Miley recently. I finally had a look at the VMA performance, and it struck me that she wasn't giving a performance so much as having a good time. Clearly trying really hard to be who she wants to be, and as such she's become a bona fide rock personality, the new Mick Jagger if you will (she's got the moves).
Anyway, and so I've had Yoshimi sitting around since 2011, and earlier this year I released the first volume of her adventures. I recently completed a move back to Maine, and I had computer files sitting there and I saw Miley twerk, and I thought, why not? So I put the package together and prepared The Whole Bloody Affair for release. It's not perfect. These self-made releases rarely are, and after Miley I guess I kind of decided it was okay. If I'm going to release something myself, I shouldn't stress so much about that.
So there it is. Once the book goes through the full release, I'll have a bunch of links, but here's one to start with. The cover, once you see it, is pretty simple, an homage to one of the inspirations for Yoshimi's story, Kill Bill, which I've been loving for a decade now.
If you want, help me spread the word, or wait for the Amazon and Kindle listings. Either way, I'm just glad that I've finally gotten the whole bloody thing out there.
