I have finally finished and published my book, An Invitation to Planet Big from The Beard, and it is now available on Createspace: https://www.createspace.com/6937515

The book should be available on Amazon between Wednesday March 8th and Friday March 10th. (Will add a link when available, I get higher royalties from Createspace, but Amazon sales allow for reviews and higher awareness and may enable other benefits like free shipping, not sure how Createspace sales work for shipping/reviews on Amazon)


No ebook version available.




Edit: Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1543140092/
You can have it email you when it becomes available. Should be by available by Friday.

Not at this time.


Here's a copy of the Table of Contents if that helps anyone decide if they want to give the book a chance. The book may live or die based on whether or not anyone here gives the book a chance and then on whether or not they like and share the book enough to give the book credible awareness to spread to others. I have no marketing campaign and no money for ads. I think the book is interesting and read over the content many times, but getting others to give a book a chance when there are countless books and other ways of spending one's time is a rather difficult task, particularly when I have no money for ads to even make people aware of the option. Basically reliant on curiosity being piqued here enough to give the book a chance and then favorable reviews from the few who do, to get others to see the book as worth their time. Thanks for your interest.

There is now a preview for the book via the "Look Inside" feature on Amazon: https://www.amazon.c...duct/1543140092

Also shows the back cover (but not the spine).
Think it shares different amounts with different people based on some hidden algorithms for deciding that. Shares most of the book with me, but not sure how much it will show others.
