I am extremely proud to announce that I have just published my first book, Philosophical Suicide. 🥳
It’s a bit surreal, to be honest. Sometimes I can’t believe it’s actually happened. It was just a thought in the beginning of 2017 and now, almost 5 years later, that thought has manifested itself into a - remarkably beautiful - tangible product, 100X better than anything I could have ever imagined. Surely, this must be what giving birth feels like?
It’s been a very interesting journey thus far: the writing, the coaching, the editing, the book compilation, the iterating, the doubt, the self-criticism, the fear and the procrastination (there was a lot of procrastination).
For a long time during this 5 year period I was fighting a war with myself. I was my own enemy of progress, refusing to acknowledge my own light and continuously brushing off my inner desires and ambitions. Then whenever I’d come across someone else who was either working on or releasing their own book, I’d cry a little on the inside. Because I knew deep down that this was my portion in life, yet for some reason I was still holding myself back.
Thankfully I’ve managed to conquer all my demons and come out on the other side of this battle triumphant, with my head, pen and pad held high.
I have a whole lot more to share with you, I’d love to explain why I wrote a book, how I wrote the book and I’d love to detail all the ins and outs of my self-publishing journey. But I’ll save that for another post.
For now let us just celebrate the fact that I can finally, with confidence and evidence, call myself a published author 😭!!!
So, where can you get a copy?
Philosophical Suicide is available as a paperback, an Ebook and a PDF. Please head on over to http://philosophicalsuicide.com to get yourself - or someone you think would benefit from my musings - a copy.
Thanks for all the support over the years. Without readers like you reading, sharing and commenting on my various articles, I wouldn’t have felt enough confidence to actually write and publish an entire book.
Spread the word, don't be shy
If you do buy a copy, please don't hesitate to share it on social media and tag me @benmmari. As daunting as it may be, I'd really love to get this book into as many people's hands as possible.
