CB7T! How goes it? My yearly check in...

Hello hello!

Yes.... seems that I check-in only about once a year nowadays, but I always enjoy seeing that the familiar red and black is still intact, as well as the emoticons from 2003, and that, for the most part, everything remains the same. Enthusiasm levels are still high, and the quarter-century-old Accords are still way ahead of their time (how did Honda manage this?)

It's nice, and thank you Deev, as always, for maintaining the vibes. Couldn't have asked for a more professional Admin.

I been thinkin'...

One of these days I'll have another CB7, and it'll undoubtedly be a white coupe, '92, begging to be dropped and swapped-- stock. Imagine that. Me finding an EX with those five spoke alloys, just sitting off to the side of grandma's front porch, rust free and 80k. Now I'm really dreaming right?

Anyhow, as always, one of the things I like to do when I stop by is update the community on my new projects. Sometimes it's film and sometimes they're other creative endeavors, like my current one, which happens to be a fiction novel called WELCOME TO THE ABYSS.

I won't babble on with synopses and what not, but I will say that it's an honest tale based on real life experiences, and something which I'm pleased to share with the world and CB7T. In short, the book falls somewhere between a travelogue and poetic journey of soul searching in tumultuous times. Partly a road story.

You can find out more at: www.abyssnovel.com or on the FB page www.facebook.com/nahajabyssnovel

As of March 3rd, it's also available for purchase on Amazon (paperback & eBook): www.amazon.com/dp/B00T54ZHUK

Any support is much appreciated!

In the meantime.... I'm off to make a tuna sandwich and get to work. Hope all is well with everyone - old and new school members alike. Keep the oil fresh, windshields clean, tires inflated.... but you already know all this, of course.

- Steve

Wow, you really have done quite a few different things since you moved on from the CB.

Thanks for stopping by every year to check up.

You should make Jarrett an offer on the white '93 EX coupe in his garage, he might get it back together for you

Always good to see you around, Steve! We've slowed down a great deal on here, but we're still trying to keep things going. So far, so good!

I should have my copy of your book later this week. I'm looking forward to it!

That's where Amazon prime comes in FTW.

I tell you what man, living in a place that only has Walmart and Radio Shack for the only places slinging electronics for 150 miles really drives you to pay for stuff like Amazon prime.

Ha - I'll consider it. Doesn't *have to be* grandma-stock after all.

Glad I could contribute, in a roundabout way, to your cleanliness, Deev. Thanks for ordering and hope you enjoy

Amazon is great. I hesitated using them as a sales channel, but it's hard to beat their ... everything.

Of course. Thank you

Hey Ralphie Well, aging is a somewhat inevitable part of life, but chugging along is good!

If you want to sell a book, Amazon is an unavoidable evil!

Where are you living now, Steve? I saw you were in Paris for a while (which was pretty awesome, by the way...)

Currently bouncing back and forth between Europe and the east coast (Maryland / PA). My girlfriend lives in France, so we're both traveling quite a bit lately...

Got the book in the mail last night from Amazon. Looks nice, unfortunately I have not gotten an opportunity to dig in yet.

Stupid Amazon is taking their sweet time with mine! The site still says "preparing for shipment".

Amazon Prime FTW.

I'm telling you man, people without prime membership get slow-rolled on getting the stuff out.

I'm pretty much all Amazon these days, for the most part their prices are on par with NewEgg on computer stuff, so yeah.

Man... you must be right! My order is STILL "preparing for shipment". It says I'll have it between the 10th and the 14th. Seeing as tomorrow is the 13th, they're cutting it close!

This book had better be good, Steve!

^^ Hey guys. Just now seeing this. Hopefully you've received the book by now, Mike!

Part of the reason for the delay could be due to the fact that each paperback is printed on demand (only as they're ordered). It's a possibility that the printing is grouped with the 'preparation' status.

Anyhow.. will look into it.

On-demand printing? That's innovative! I didn't know that had become an option!

Yeah, I got it a few days ago. Read the first chapter, and liked what I read so far. I've been busy with work, interviews for more work, researching school, etc... so I haven't been able to devote time to reading further. I'm hoping later this week I'll be able to sit down and really dig into it!

It's weird. Normally when I read a book, I picture the main character as myself. But since I know the author, I'm picturing him as you!

Ha - I've heard this from other close friends. Due to the autobiographical nature, it's uhhh... difficult to change perspective!

Glad you received it.
