    It’s great to see Gone Pro North Carolina mentioned in The Asheville Post. If you see a mention of my book in the news media, be sure to let us know!

    And if you want me, Tim W. Jackson, to have a signing event at a bookstore near you, contact the store owners and let them know! Gone Pro North Carolina is a book of the Tar Heel proletariat! Rise up and express your needs! (Or, if you’re really rich, just buy copies of the book for everyone in your country club.)

    Just look at this photo. This is a man of the people. Look at that crap on my desk. I mean, a typewriter? And that iMac is like 8 years old. It doesn’t even work anymore. And I had to make that snow globe with a photo of my daughter in it. Can you tell that’s a Tar Heels T-shirt I’m wearing? Anyway, come on folks, buy my book. I need some decent stuff!

    GPNCYou can get a sample of Gone Pro North Carolina at Google Play. In addition, you can also buy Gone Pro North Carolina as an ebook from that site. You should probably buy a for-realz version of the book to rest proudly on your bookcase or coffee table—maybe enclosed in glass or something. But then as Tom Chalmers of the Steve Sax Syndrome radio show on Asheville FM says, “It makes great bathroom reading!” So you may want a copy somewhere near your toilet. Works great in an outhouse, too!

    But then what if you don’t want to lug around that book that weighs almost a whole pound? Get that ebook so you can have Gone Pro North Carolina on your laptop, tablet, or mobile device.

    What we’re trying to say here is preview the book and then get multiple copies for every possible scenario—and it makes a great present for all your Tar Heel friends and family, too!

    TheHopThe book is finally here! For those who have pre-ordered from places such as Amazon, the book has been delivered. It’s starting to show up in bookstores across North Carolina. It’s time to celebrate.

    Join us Thursday, April 10, at The Hop Ice Cream Cafe at 640 Merrimon Avenue in Asheville for the release party of Gone Pro North Carolina, published by Clerisy Press. I’ll have a handful of books for sale for $15. The event begins at 7 p.m. and will continue until around 9 p.m.

    So if you’re a Tar Heels fan or a UNC alumnus in the Asheville area, stop by to say hello, enjoy some ice cream (I even hear there will be an ice cream cake!), and maybe even pick up a copy of Gone Pro North Carolina! See you there!
