Goatman: Published.

Tonight has been an extremely satisfying night. The latest proof copy of Goatman: Flesh or Folklore? arrived almost a week early. After what likely amounted to my 100th reading of the material, I finally realized the book was now ready for humanoid consumption. With a light heart and a nervous stomach, I gave the go ahead for publication.

As of this moment Goatman: Flesh or Folklore? is now on sale at my store and on Amazon.com

Within 14  days the book with be available on Kindle.

Within 6-8 weeks (but likely much sooner) the book with be available at Barnes and Noble, and just about anywhere else books are sold.

They say there are seven stages of grief. I believe there are also seven stages to writing a book. For me they are, in order:

1) Skeptical enthusiasm

2) Fanatical dedication

3) Bleak disillusionment

4) Sickening self-doubt

5) Euphoric enthusiasm

6) Crippling anxiety

7) Complete and total relief

I am presently at stage seven. There’s a lot of people who deserve recognition for making this project a reality, but I’ll save that for the book’s acknowledgment page. But I would like to use this space to thank everyone who’s believed in me and followed my other projects. If you’ve ever attended one of my talks, tours, or presentations; if you’ve ever liked something of mine on social media; If you’ve ever told a friend about one my projects; if you’ve ever pretended to laugh at one of my terrible, terrible, terrible jokes, you’re responsible for Goatman: Flesh or Folklore? being written.

I hope you’ll all enjoy it, or at the very least, mumble to yourself “That Couch fellow knows a lot about weird stuff” as you shove the book into the box marked “Goodwill.”

Thanks one, thanks all.
