So it’s starting to become real. Committed: A Memoir of the Artist’s Road is now available for pre-order. Even better, my publisher is offering a 10% discount to Artist’s Road readers; they just need to enter the promo code PREORDER2014 at checkout.
You’ll be shipped the book on the day of the “soft-launch” publication, October 16th. Committed will be widely available in bookstores, online, and in ebook format in November.
I tweeted the news of the pre-order discount yesterday afternoon and was delighted to see this tweet from the author of Creative You, David B. Goldstein:

I can’t be sure, but I think that makes David the first buyer of my book. What I am sure of is that I’ve sold at least one! David then requested I sign the book; I am happy to do so and it will be easy, as he lives about a half-mile from me. Amazingly enough, we came to know each other online through our shared passion for creativity, with no knowledge of our geographic proximity!
Should you be brave enough to pre-order Committed, be sure to let me know so I can thank you. Now I need to figure out how to sign books for readers like you who don’t live down the street.
UPDATE: I’ve just learned that pre-orders are only possible for U.S. and Canadian customers. Of course some of you reside elsewhere; the publisher has told me that you can wait until November when it’s available online at your country’s version of Amazon, etc.–no discount that route–or contact the publisher directly at this address for an invoice.
