    Hello my Clutchfans compadres

    I've been working on a book for the last three years and now it's published. I wanted to share it with all of you and give you two opportunities. If you just happen to want to buy it to support my efforts, I appreciate it. If you buy it from now until midnight you'd be paying for it, but tomorrow (12:01am not sure which time zone) it will be FREE for you.

    What is this book about?
    -
    The greatest epic ever written about whales. Follow twenty whales on a spiritual journey around the world in a dangerous underwater adventure. 'The Pod' is summoned and led by a mystic Narwhal. The story that unfolds is narrated by a Beluga whale as they search for the life answers they all seek. You won't want to miss this opportunity to read the greatest epic written in many years. The dangers these whales face and the things they learn along the way give you a new way to look at this world we're all part of. Just like in our daily lives, diversity is key in unlocking the mystery for these whales. Narwhal, Beluga, Bowhead, Blue, Humpback, Pygmy, Orca, Pseudorca, Bottlenose, Beaked, Melon-Headed, Strap-Tooth, Pilot, Gray, Bryde, Minke, Right Whale, Fin, Sei and Sperm. All the popular whales are here in this book, now it's time to dive in with them!

    Awesome man- congrats! Super impressive that you released a movie and a book in the same year. I need to get on your productivity regimen. Seriously, any tips?

    Thanks Mr Brightside. It's no trick. Been grinding for years. That movie was late 2014 and I started the book shortly after I finished the movie. But when I'm working creatively I work until I'm tired, fall asleep, wake up when I'm done sleeping and start grinding again. I follow no sleep schedule too. I flourish in lack of structure.

    Can someone help me out? Is 'The Pod' free right now on Amazon? I'm not sure when it's going to switch over time zone wise.

    Awesome! I will definitely check it out. It sounds like something I would be very interested in. I love the art too. My favorite author is Richard Adams. I love how he writes from the animals perspective, so I am certain I will enjoy this read. Thanks for letting us in on it.

    Kudos dongram!

    I don't read fiction books much, but I'll take a look at it and leave a good note.

    Thanks brother! Get yourself a copy while it's free on amazon. The link at the top should still work. I lowered the price to a dollar on nook if anyone has one of those readers. I understand they're pretty much the same thing but nook works with Barnes and Noble.

    I skimmed it and the writing is very engaging. I look forward to the Wes Anderson film interpretation.
