Summit Success Progress Report

[originally blogged 14 Oct 2014]
So it's been about a month now and it's been really great. I've sold way more than I expected and it's been a ton of fun answering questions and chatting with people on Facebook about this book. I finally got an awesome 5-star review and just today got a bump in Kindle sales that skyrocketed me into the #1870 position in authors for the Health/Fitness Genre. That's amazing for not having run a free promo.

I'm expecting a slew of more reviews to be coming in as more people finish this book. It's a good 340 pages of intense reading, so I expect it will be a while for a lot of people to get it done and posted.
Here's a sample personal review I received via email:
And the charts, you put a LOT of work into those! Too bad most readers don't really understand what all goes into writing a book and doing the photos and charts and graphs and all the research and math and everything. I can tell that you put NUMEROUS hours into this book.
Yes, it took me two years to write this book. During that time I had a bunch of human guinea pigs testing it out and giving me feedback to help me make it the best book like it.

So go get one, now, and start your training. If you do, you'll be in great shape for an April 2015 climb. Send me pics of your training and share your stories. We'd love to hear from you. Note: remember that for the time being it's available FREE on Kindle Unlimited and Amazon Prime (remember to "Borrow For Free" from the Kindle in the Kindle Store, not from a PC or other device)

Review: Children of Atlas [science fiction]

Children of Atlas by Dustin Porta
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

To me it seemed very convoluted and disjointed. I started skimming ahead looking for something to like. The protagonist seemed likable enough to start, but soon the empathy failed and there turned out to be multiple protagonist lines and eventually I started hoping everyone would just die. Sorry about that.

I know several people out there like this kind of story, but I'm not one of them. Written well enough, just no characters to latch onto and get the feels for [for me anyway].

Review: Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle

Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle: How To Be Healthy, Lose Weight, Burn Fat, Get Lean and Build Muscle Without Life Sucking by R.J Strife
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you're totally new, or just curious about Intermittent Fasting, this is a good 30,000' view. If you're vaguely familiar with IF, this shows a couple of optional protocols to follow. If you want in-depth info, this isn't the book, though author does touch on some concepts on long-term use.

If you take some of these ideas and do some of your own research, you will quickly be able to make your own decisions.

A handful of relatively minor editing errors.
