- Here I am. 18 months ago I had finished a novel (Exquisite Hours) and was dealing with two agents.
Each took, on average, three weeks to reply to an email. I thought, fuck them. My time is too valuable for me to put it in the hands of some book-sniffing election-voting snail-enthusiast. What if I just printed it myself?
It had taken me eight months to write. But how would I get it read? Then I thought, “Fuck it”. And I spent EVERY LAST CENT I had on ordering 500 copies of Exquisite Hours to my parents’ house and I kindly asked my mother if she would consider buying me a flight home for Christmas as her Christmas gift to me. — I had 500 copies. I WOULD get them read. Or I would die. Or get a job. But fuck that. — So I released it. And by some miracle—by the quality of the writing, or the foolery of the author—orders started to come in. I was so entirely broke that I even had to wait until a certain amount of copies were ordered just to be able to buy the pens that would address their packages. And I kept performing, and pushing, and plugging, and working day and night to convince you and Instagram that Exquisite Hours was not only a book worth reading, but an hilarious one at that. And after six weeks, WOOSH!!! Gone. I had pulled it off. — Having the desire for no wealth but the freedom to entertain you, I used the money from that book launch for one purpose—to go off and write the next one. That next one would become GRIEVE. That novel took me a year to write and release. Six days ago GRIEVE sold out. — Today… I begin my fourth novel. And I want you along with me for the audacity-fuelled ride. — My new newsletter is coming... — ‘The Laughing Cavalier.’ Novel-writing, comedy, history, culture, elegant hilarity, the exposure of humbug, my personal diary. — Sign up to it now at 👉🏻joshvahvmphreys.com. — #thelaughingcavalier #joshwritebook #photographiesoftheauthor

- June is almost over? Can you believe that, this has been my most reaductive (reading and productive together) month this year. I'm at 7 books this month alone! Granted, one was a finally finishing after months of reading. But still, that's insane. I'm hoping to squeeze one more in (Heartless is fantastic too, so it won't be too hard). Embers was one of my June reads and I can't tell you how much I loved this book. I'm trying to pace myself and wait to read the 2nd one, but dude it was so great. . . . What was your favorite June read? . . . . . . #bookstgram #bookish #bookstagrammer #fiction #reading #books #instabook #amreading #writer #reader #bookstagram #instabooks #booktography #yalit #bibliophile #booknerd #bookaholic #bookgram #yabooks #bookphotography #yafiction #writer #writersofig
