Many years ago, I learned that I had a penchant for putting my thoughts down in such a way that other people found them humorous, interesting or, in many cases, infuriating. Somewhere along the line I came up with the idea of publishing a newsletter, and those thoughts would find themselves interspersed with items that the readers could relate to. These “Snippets,” as I called them, came to be one of the more popular reasons why people subscribed. Some of my comments have taken on lives of their own at times, and it always amazes me when I hear myself quoted.
Recently, I met my new neighbors and learned that they were in the publishing business. I offered to let them look at the things I have written, and before I knew what was happening, I had agreed to publish a book. Snippets, Comments from the Red is a collection of some of my comments over the last few years. Some of them might be a little bit dated, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t relevant to things that are happening today. That’s why my editor and I decided to include them, in the hope that they will either entertain or educate the readers.
Below are a couple of excerpts. I hope you enjoy them. If you do, feel free to buy the book. Here are a couple of ways you can get it:
Snippets on Bookady.com. I like this one because it’s the only place where I actually get paid instantly when someone buys the book. Everyone else makes me wait up to a month to get the money, and sometimes I could really use it!
Snippets on Amazon. If you would rather have it in print, this is the place to go.
