Buy My New Book, Please! Writing Assignments eBook and Paperback Now Available

by Randy Murray on November 30, 2010

This is a big day for me!  I’m very excited to release my new book, Writing Assignments, based on the series I started here at First Today, Then Tomorrow.

I’ll try not to overhype this book, but I am very proud of it. It contains many of the assignments I’ve published here and several new ones, too. I believe that together it makes a very useful workbook that virtually any writer would benefit from.

I’m making it available in DRM-free electronic formats – ePub and PDF, and as a hardcopy, honest-to-god paperback edition. If I say so myself, it looks terrific. I want to thank Aaron Mahnke from Wet Frog Studios for the logo, cover design, and book layout and format. I recommend him highly for your project.

So please, buy yourself a copy. Buy several! They make excellent holiday gifts.

To purchase the paperback or ebook edition please follow this link to purchase the book through Lulu.com.

Writing Assignments will be available soon in wider distribution through Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and booksellers worldwide.

Buying a copy of Writing Assignments is also a way for you to support my work on this site.

And please, spread the word. I’d greatly appreciate your featuring this new book on your web site, Facebook, through tweets, or any way you can. I’m also offering special discounts for bulk purchase, for educational uses, or for distribution inside organizations. Contact me for more information!

Starting at the beginning…and having fun!
200 Words On Tea (ok…197 words):
Colors and flavors of tea are as varied as any beverage these days. Within the greens and the blacks are the herbal and the fruity, the caf and the decaf, even the hot and the cold. With all the available choices what keeps the popularity of tea amongst Americans so far behind that of carbonated beverages? Does it come down to laziness?
Most tea options are attached to a little bit of work. Some would suggest that the much of the brew’s appeal is in the act of brewing. Finding the preferred portion size of loose tea, boiling the water, steeping the leaves, determining the precise amount of time that produces the precise shade of flavor, the warmth, the aroma and the soothing sip.
Iced tea drinkers have scored recently with the availability of ready-to-drink varieties, but the stalwart tea aficionado would contend that consuming premade teas forfeits the savory taste of authenticity.
Let the beverage drinker be satisfied! Surely the purpose of tea variety is to cater to the nuances of the consumer, to insure the possibility of choosing just the right brew. Bagged, loose or bottled, American tea drinkers have plenty from which to choose.

Aye-yi-yi. I went from 153 to 184 to 197, Boss. Count 200! Having some fun now:

See, I knew you could do it, kid.

Think you’re ready to tackle 300 words on soda pop?
