I should just stop sleeping altogether so I have more time to do things.
Happened upon this in my local Borders this past weekend… anyone recognize the label binding on that book in the middle? Let me give you a hint… it looks like this:
How it got there, I’ll never know, but it’s there now.
Ugh. I just recently noticed that it’s been over two years since I finished self publishing my book.
Ouch: in another seven years, I should recover what I spent on the publishing process.

If you’ve like what you’ve read here – and you like to read books as well as blogs – I recommend that you check out my book. Wait, what book?

Those reasons are now taken care of, so I’m content to plug away.
Check out Memoirs of an Italian Geek, by R. L. Santi at iUniverse, Barnes and Noble, or Amazon – you can find out more about the history of the book at http://www.rlsanti.com/
And thanks for reading the site!
A new Geek book has been released: Memoirs of an Italian Geek by R. L. Santi. I’m told it will show up on Amazon and Barnes and Noble but right now it’s available here in paperback thanks to iUniverse. Call me biased but I thought it might interest a number of the readers here – the majority of you are just as much a Geek as I am.
Just a quick update. The review came back from the publisher and they suggested some updates and some changes. Consequently, there was another round of proofreading and editing done and the now final final final manuscript has been shuttled off to the publisher. More importantly, there’s a new website with that will handle the updates for this book – you’ll find it at http://www.rlsanti.com/.
