The Street Shrink ChroniclesThe Street Shrink Chronicles by Jason Wittman M.P.S.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think it is the greatest book I have ever written. It is easy for me to say that because it is the only book I have ever written. My first! Those who have read it find it a fairly fast read. Having read and reread it during the proofing process, I would agree.

The book is like a week in the life of a social worker, who works with teens on the streets of the neighborhood where he resides. Having lived that life for the greater part of 35 years, it is at once a time compressed version and a simplified version of working with upwards of 40 kids at a time.

If I had not written it, I would still like it.

Finally, if you would like to purchase a copy of the book you can now order it on Amazon.com

It is also available direct from the printer at: http://CreateSpace.com/3495999 I would rather you ordered it from Amazon so that it will help our sales count. I would like to see the book being the number 1 best seller for at least a day!

Well, OK, I was a bit premature on the last posting. Another reading of the proof uncovered a handful of minor punctuation and grammar changes, so here we go again. I am now estimating that the book will be published and orderable but Friday. Maybe that’s optimistic, but that’s me, Jason Optimistic.

We found a bunch of corrections that needed to be made, so we made them and ordered another proof copy which arrived this morning. If all looks OK, I will push the publish button Sunday night and you all will be able to order copies on Amazon by Tuesday. Stay tuned for more developments. If you sign up for email notifications (above), you will be notified as soon as I post it.

I have here in my not so grubby paws, two proof copies of the book. It looks wonderful!

It is really an amazing feeling to have a physical copy of a book I have been working on for all these years actually in my hand. Now comes the last part of the production process, actually reading it, one more time, to make sure everything is the way it ought to be. Once that is done, I will push the button and it will be available on Amazon, immediately.

The proof copies were printed today and are in the mail to me. I ought to get them on Sat. As soon as I make sure that they are correct and give the publishers the OK, they will be in Amazon’s catalog and Kindle’s catalog.

It’s a bit exciting!

I first started writing this book in 1983. I have been writing it, on and off, ever since. I found it very hard to write during the times when I was actively out on the streets working with kids. It kept looking like case notes rather than the semi-fictional novel I was wanting to write. The last couple of years has been the steadiest writing and it’s done!

I want to thank all the slow waiters in various restaurants. Lots of this novel was written waiting for food to be served. The rest was written in laundromats waiting for clothes to finish drying.

So all that needs doing now is to read the galleys when they arrive. Hopefully there will be no corrections to make so that the book will be available at Amazon.com by the first of December.
