I am writing a book, called “The Bonerquest.”
The last year has been one of personal agony. Nearly a week after I last posted anything to this silly tumblr page, I fell ill. My podcasting shows, which meant quite a lot to me, both imploded in on themselves. My writing articles slowed. My days became shorter, my nights at work became longer. The nights I wasn’t working became longer still, full of laying awake staring into space, thinking. Thinking of my novel, a full real novel is what I’ve been doing, I’m nearly finished with it, and will be self publishing it within the year. This has been boiling within me for many years, buried deep within my soul. Finally, I’ve tapped into it and the words have came out in such a way that I’m comfortable with.
I’ve been a joker for many years, never becoming fully organized until last year when I decided to write a full length novel based on a computer game I made, The Bonerquest. I want to realize a fantasy satire that is full of comedic situations and silly things, and spread that with the world. I’ve tried to get to better states of consciousness to pull this from the ether, letting my words flow out of me onto a blank page I’ve written what I feel is hilarious. That sounds wacky, but it is exactly how it happens. I believe this book has to happen for me.
I’m not done yet, I think I’m going to take a long time to actually get this done, but I really want to make it happen. My hope is to write professionally and quit my night job stocking cereal. My book doesn’t need to be that successful, I don’t make that much money to live the lifestyle that I have now. I want to share this with everybody here, and have your positive energy influence my own energy.
If I can get this done, I want to write more books. I believe in myself. I have some notes and research for what my next novels should be. I treat this as work, doing exhaustive research on anything I think may be of use, even if it is a minor detail within my story, if I am to properly lampoon anything, I must know everything. It is my greatest wish that my book makes you laugh, hopefully this very thing you’re reading makes you laugh, because it is kind of funny actually that a guy put this much effort into something as silly as this, and that I’m trying to come off honest about how much I believe in it.
The premise of “The Bonerquest” is all about a wizard who tells lies everywhere he goes and isn’t a wizard. He wants to rule the world. He also thinks he might be a homosexual as well. If that sounds interesting, hopefully you’ll buy a copy when I’m done with it, if it doesn’t sound interesting, then don’t buy a copy but talk about it. Tell people you know about a guy who believed in himself and wrote a book called Bonerquest. Maybe somebody else will accept The Bonerquest. Will you accept The Bonerquest?
The Bonerquest is a thing I want to make real. If I tell you guys, and set this goal, I can make it happen. This is a silly goal to have, but it is my goal.
I want to self publish it as well through createspace on amazon, and find a way to digitally publish it for kindles, iPhones, iPads, and everything else that I can get it out onto. I will do an audiobook version too, maybe just myself reading it or hiring a professional to read it. I want this to exist for real, instead of just as an idea. I want to finish this within the next six months.
This is my dream, this is my goal. I have a story, that I need to share with the universe.
