I wrote a book!
No, it's not a scathing memoir about the church's wackiness, like The Passion of the Raptor Jesus. Nor is it a thought-provoking chronicle of an LDS mission, like Heaven Up Here. In fact, it has pretty much nothing to do with Mormonism at all, which makes the self-promotion all the more shameless.
It's a novel. It follows the life of a kind-of-down-on-his-luck community college student in his attempts to find success, happiness, love and sex. It took me several years of tinkering to complete it and I'm proud of the finished product. My friends seem to think it's pretty funny and most of them have healthy senses of humor, so they could be right!
I guess the only ex-Mormon-blog-related point I could make here is that, because of the language and the sexual themes, I could never have written something like this as a faithful member of the church. One more reason why leaving was a good call.
Anyway, if you have a few extra bucks and a free afternoon sometime, I hope you'll check it out. Thanks!
