Thank You!

Thank you...

... for supporting me over the last year while I wrote my book.

... for reading the book.

... for considering reading the book.

... for the wonderful reviews.

... for telling a friend.

... for your touching words of encouragement.

... for the emails, tweets and FaceBook messages.

... for putting up with the blog turning into an infomercial this week.

... for laughing while you read.

... for crying along with me (If you cried when you read it, be sure that I cried while I wrote it).

... for helping to make me a published author.

... for reading Arden's Day.


Next week when you see a new post it won't include the words life, laundry, short, eternal, confessions, dad, stay - I promise. But for this week...

Life Is Short, Laundry Is Eternal: Confessions of a Stay-At-Home Dad is my first book. Its on sale now everywhere that books are sold in paperback and on your favorite eBook formats.

You can buy it today on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, Amazon Canada, Amazon UK, IndieBound and more.

If you've read Life Is Short and enjoyed it, I hope that you consider writing a review at one of the online sellers listed above. And please share your experience with a friend (or twenty).

So that's pretty much it. The links will stay on Arden's Day, reader pictures will continue to scroll on the sidebar, and from time-to-time I'll share book information and reviews on the main page. All ongoing book information will be posted on the FaceBook page that exists for the book or on this sub page of Arden's Day.

This has been one of the most stunning and fulfilling years of my life and there is still lots more to come... 

Thank you for everything!

Scott Benner

I was fun to write the review, fun to read too. Very happy for your success and I hope we see it on the New York Times best seller list. Telling the detailed account of Ardens diagnoses may save more than one life.My hats off to you.

I've been behind in reading all my blogs. So missed this post a few weeks back.
no need to feel bad about promoting your book. As I was taking on a new project, some wise counsel gave me this advice: "you have to be your own rain maker." So go ahead, keep raining! :)
