Update #14

A weird request...

Comment

Hopefully by now you've all received your books and have read them over and over again until the pages are dog-eared and smudged with your fingerprints.

But this post isn't about the book. Well, not about that book anyways...

I just launched a new Kickstarter project for another, much sillier book.

See, part of living a better story is about doing the stuff you talk about doing but never get around to. Sometimes those are deeply meaningful things, sometimes things that are extremely difficult... and sometimes they're just things that are silly.

In light of this, a few of my friends and I have decided to start taking action on some of the silly ideas we're always coming up with. We're all involved in other projects that are meaningful and world-changing, but we also wanted a place where we could do things that were just, well... ridiculous.

Our first project is a silly idea we had called 99 Shades of Grey. I'd give you more details, but I think you'd laugh a lot more if you just go watch the video.

Hope you guys are well. Please share this with anybody you think would enjoy a good laugh. And if you're so inclined, you should buy a copy for yourself. :)

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The day we've all been waiting for has arrived. A few days ago, a pallet full of books (see image below) showed up at my in-laws' house (I live on a steep hill, so the shipping company couldn't deliver them here).

I've been spending my time signing books and getting shipments ready, and I should be ready to ship the books out over the course of the next two weeks (I'm going to be out of town speaking for a week starting this Wednesday, so that's slowing down the schedule a bit).

All of that to say, be keeping a lookout for your books in the next few weeks. And if you've changed your address since the end of the campaign, send me an email (kyle@kylescheele.com) so I can correct it before the shipments go out.

Thanks for your patience, guys. Can't wait to hear what you think of the book!
