My book, Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir, is now shipping from Amazon! Several people have e-mailed me to say they’ve received the following e-mail:
The item(s) listed below will actually ship sooner than we originally expected:
Jennette Fulda (Author) “Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir”
Estimated arrival date: 04/21/2008
The Amazon book page lists the book as “In stock.” They’re still offering it at the $10.85 pre-order price too.
A couple people have asked me where is the best place to buy the book so I make the most money. First off, thanks for thinking of my financial well-being! We all know food ain’t cheap and those weird fruits and vegetables can be expensive. I make the most money if you buy the book directly from me because that cuts out the middle man. However, I’m not selling copies until I actually have them in hand, which will hopefully be soon. If you just can’t wait, the next best thing is to purchase it from Amazon using my affiliate link or any of the links on this page. I get a percentage of the price of the book, plus a percentage of anything else you put in your cart and buy at the same time. If neither one of those options works for you, buy the book new from a bookstore and I’ll get a royalty. If you buy it used, I don’t get a penny. Pennies don’t buy much these days, but I could still use one to ride the mechanical pony at the front of the Meijer store.
Also in the news today, Marci Alboher from the Shifting Careers blog/column at the New York Times wrote a great article about the blog, the book and how weight loss has affected my career. Thanks, Marci! Marci’s got a great blog too (and she just got a cute little puppy), so be sure to check it out.
Things are starting to gear up with book promotions, plus I still have a full-time job to go to every day and a personal life to maintain and a mini-marathon to train for (who’s bright idea was it to take on all this stuff?), so blog posting might start to get erratic in the month of May. I will do my best to keep writing fresh, funny, relevant entries, but if I disappear for days at a time just assume that I have collapsed on my bed with my running shoes still on. I thought your comments on my last post were better than the post itself, so I’m sure you all can handle things even if I’m unconscious.
