Almost exactly three years ago, I published Ruin Your Life. It had taken me the better part of five years to put it all together and when it was done, I was proud of the result. Ruin Your Life did not go on to become a worldwide bestseller, but it was never meant to.
It did succeed in making me a few dollars and selling a few hundred copies. And for a book with no distribution deal and a marketing plan that consisted of word of mouth and some stickers, I’m astonished by the results.
Ruin Your Life has gone throughout the country and the world. There are copies in Afghanistan and Iraq. There are copies in prisons. And people are still buying copies of it. That’s fairly impressive, all things considered.
I’ve done what I set out to do with Ruin Your Life and I’m ready for what’s next. This is why I’ve chosen to stop publication of Ruin Your Life. New copies will no longer be sold by Amazon.com and the digital copy is no longer available. For those of you who have copies, thank you for buying them and enjoy the fact that you now own an out of print book. For those of you still interested in Ruin Your Life, I do still have a handful of copies left in my possession. If you’re interested, you can click the Ruin Your Life tab above and buy one. I’m still selling it for $5.00 plus shipping.
Contrary to the headline, this isn’t the end of Ruin Your Life. Eventually I’m sure I’ll do something else with it, but this is the end for now.
Thanks for all of the support.
