I have another confession. If I am ever able to turn this site into a book, publishers this is your opportunity to say “let me publish you Jon,” I am going to be very tempted to do that Christian thing where you spin off one idea one million ways. Let’s take the book series “Every Man’s Battle” as an example, which by the way tells men to treat their wives like methadone when they need a fix of sex. That is so bogus it makes my teeth hurt but I digress. They wrote a book called “Every Man’s Battle.” It did well. Then they proceeded to write the following books:
- Every young man’s battle.
- Every woman’s battle.
- Every man’s marriage.
- Every single man’s battle.
- Preparing your son for every man’s battle.
- Every heart restored.
- Every day for every man.
- Every man, God’s man.
- Every red haired Uncle that lives in Hudson, Massachusett’s battle.
OK, I made up that last one, but the whole thing is a little silly. You could argue that every one deserves the truth in the first book, but this is more about selling books and less about sharing truth. And I wish I was making this up, but there’s now a “Chicken Soup for the American Idol Soul.” Ace Young, which really sounds like a character from the movie Top Gun, was signing it at the store near my house today.
P.S. Don’t email me and say I’m just jealous of their success. I am. Immensely so. I really want to publish a book so it’s very possible I am wicked, super, big time jealous of them.
P.S.S. Is it smart to ever criticize a book because doesn’t that make publishers not like you? Indeed, but all I want this site to be is honest. And objectifying your wife as a fix to an addiction is not cool.
