In June 2008, I popped over to Orson Scott Card's website to see what new books he might coming out with in the future. I didn't see any new books, but I noticed he was putting out a call for essays and that very day was the last day they were accepting submissions. I racked my brain for a good ten minutes and then typed what I could think of. The question was something along the lines of what Ender's Game meant to me as a reader. The ten minutes I spent brain-wracking consisted of me thinking "How do I summarize what this book means to me? This book that I have read so many times I could outline the plot and identify each character by how they fight?" I don't remember exactly what I wrote but apparently it was good enough to be picked for his newest book, The Authorized Ender Companion. The Companion is co-authored by Jake Black (no clue who he is) and I don't really know what it's about. I just know that my little blurb will be in it and you should all buy a copy. I won't have to buy a book because Orson will be sending me my own autographed copy. I'm not rubbing it in or anything, just stating the facts. The facts that I am awesome and I rock.
Before my head gets too big I better find something humbling to do. My dirty bathrooms are calling. That ought to take a little hot air out of me.
