Happy birthday to me!

Happy birthday to me!


Lastly, you should buy some Steve Vernon books. In fact, everyone who reads this entry ought to go and buy some Steve Vernon books. It’s my birthday today – but even if it wasn’t you will find that just the mere purchase of a Steve Vernon book will bring an odd sense of satisfaction into your spirit. Your friends will say to you – “Have you been working out? You seem taller? Lost weight? Blackmailing Donald Trump?” – and you can just smile and say to them – “No, I just bought a Steve Vernon book.”

In fact, all of the self-help volumes in the entire universe – including those volumes written in obscure Babylonian dialects could easily be summed up with – “Forget about knowing thyself and learning a new word every – like flatulation – and forget about yoga and jogging and tantric breathing techniques – forget about social networking and improving your diction and wiping your mouth after you sneeze – just buy a Steve Vernon and keep on grinning.”

Is anybody buying this?


These are not the droids you are looking for…

Yours in storytelling,

Steve Vernon

  1. Happy Birthday Steve! What a fantastic breakfast!


    • Thanks, Lauren. That’s an old picture but I actually had corn pancakes and bacon for my birthday breakfast today. My wife poured one of the pancakes into the shape of a big old heart – which made me grin. Then I gave myself a case of carpal tunnel syndrome thanking all of the birthday wishers at Facebook. Then I wrote another 1000 words on the novel manuscript. A shower is coming up and then I need dinner and I must go to work for a night shift. Birthday or not, life goes on.


  2. Happy Birthday. I hope the candles don’t represent a fire hazard at your age.
