Seriously. I mean it.

It’s been nearly two weeks since Rope Bondage The Smart Way came out, and only now is it sinking in.

I’ve actually become an author, and my book is helping people out!

I’ve received a number of reviews indicating that the book is valuable to those who have purchased it, and that’s been great. You can actually see some of them on a Goodreads widget on my front page. I get a lot of joy out of delivering value, teaching, and helping people to have their own hot times with what I teach and share, so I’m seriously over the moon right now.

Reviews rock!

The thing is though, is that I wouldn’t be here without all of you.

When I started this blog, it was meant to be a way of organizing my own learning, and sharing some of that with other people who might be interested. Since that time, I’ve gotten a lot of feedback from people who have found value in what I shared, and a lot of encouragement. I’ve had people send me emails with pictures of their own hot times, been sent additional questions, and lots of people have signed up to the email list; which to me indicates that I’m on the right track in sharing my ongoing learning. A lot of you have commented and contributed in some way to this blog.

And it’s because of you all that I made it this far! Your encouragement and positive feedback have kept me going, and with your support, I’ve written a book which shares a lot of stuff I never would have put into writing otherwise.

Thank you, all of you.

You’re why I keep writing, and why I keep sharing my ongoing learning and posting new information. I can’t express how much of an influence you’ve had on my life, or how you’ve boosted my confidence. You’ve been freaking amazing, and I wouldn’t have made it this far without you.

I’m optimistic that this year, the book will generate enough to cover the website hosting fees; which means I may end up being able to purchase new equipment like nylon rope ( I admit, I’m curious about it) and do experiments with said new equipment, and then report on my findings to you all.

Just as an aside… I chose to celebrate the release of my first book and becoming an author by going out and purchasing this with a portion of my savings. It may have been a bit premature, but hey – a guy’s gotta celebrate, right?

My very own home gym. Well, power cage. But a key part of my home gym.
Why did I choose this as a means to celebrate? And why am I talking about it here on the blog?

WELL… I bet at least a few of you can guess. I have all sorts of fun plans for that particular piece of equipment.

And I’ll write a lot more on that in the next post. It’s going to be a fun one. And probably a long one.

In the mean time, if any of you have bought the book already and feel like helping me out, then it would be incredibly helpful if you could take 30 seconds right now  to write a review.

Reviews are really helpful for new authors; not only are they validating, they also help promote the work to others. In fact, I’m pretty sure Amazon’s search algorithms rely heavily on reviews – so you have the power to make a big difference.

Reviews can be written here on Amazon , or here on Goodreads.
