I’ve been quiet this last week. I was down in North Carolina for most of it. My daughter wanted to visit her boyfriend who is stationed at Camp Lejeune and the flights from the small airport in Portland, Maine to the small airport in Jacksonville, NC cost almost as much as flying to Europe…more in some cases, so we did a road trip.
For those who are new here or don’t know, my daughter is 20 years old and we went on a massive road trip across the country last summer. This – 1900 miles in 5 days – was nothing compared to our 9000 miles in 27 days last August.
I’ve been wanting to begin a new mini-project that isn’t exactly about porn, but knew I’d need some real kick in the butt to get it going. It’s only going to be a 15,000-word e-book that sells a few hundred copies over its life, but it’s an idea I’ve wanted to work on for a little while. On Saturday, I put the “Do Not Disturb” sign on my door at the Courtyard Marriott, put a 4-pack of Red Bull on ice and got down to it. Between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. I wrote about 8,000 words, so I’m off to a good start…hopefully enough that I can continue from here in my slower times. I’ll let people know about it when I release it.
I really enjoyed the solitude in my hotel room. I watched more TV than I have for a while and only left to go get food at the little café in the lobby.
My next trip is the second week in April out to Southern California. I’ve got some stuff connected to the current book out there that I’ll be doing, but don’t want to jinx any of it with announcing anything too soon. I’m bringing my son on that trip. Trying to line up some TV show tapings as he loves the industry. He’ll just have to deal with dad promoting his book now and then.
BTW, He’s a Porn Addict…Now What? An Expert and a Former Addict Answer Your Questions had its best month ever in February, and sold more than triple anything I’ve ever done sold before. If you haven’t bought it yet, the softcover is currently on sale for like 20% off. I have no idea why Amazon is running a sale, but it’s your chance to get it for cheap if you’ve been stalling.
As for the absolute best part of this last week? My daughter and I stopped in Orange, Connecticut on Monday and visited the PEZ World Headquarters. It’s where they make and package the iconic candy. If you’re stuck in traffic on I-95 heading into or out of NYC, it’s worth 30 minutes of your time.
I’ve gotta stop eating PEZ and start eating vegetables.
