My first book is now for sale. Don't make me beg!

Okay, my first book, “Because That’s the Way God Decided to Do It!” pictured a few posts down, is now up for sale at It’s available in paperback or as a downloadable Ebook.

It should be up at the Barnes & Noble and Amazon sites before too long as well, and in select book stores (hopefully more and more as it gets rolling).

The Ebook’s $6.95, and the paperback is $13.95. I kept the price as low as they’d let me. Makes a great gift for that conservative mom or dad, or pretty much anybody who likes to laugh at life. Pick one up as a stocking stuffer– sure it’s only August, but buy one and stick it in their sock drawer… they’ll still like it.

The book has twelve chapters, and each chapter begins with a question about a particular issue, and then I stumble toward an answer, usually ending with the title response– an answer all of us have provided at some point or another. It’s 170 pages and reads light and funny while tackling some serious subjects.

I’ll have samples from some chapters up soon, and probably mention it in next week’s column(s).

Here’s the full title:

“Because That’s the Way God Decided to Do It!”
A Conservative Father Fields Confusing Questions From His Confused Kids About a Confusing World

Inadequate explanations of politics, parenting, economics, war, technology, and the future of the human race
