(2018-07-08) Far From Perfect Press Release:
This press release is to announces the publication of my first book: Far From Perfect, by George Farina.
I’m not a New York Times Best Selling Author. I’ve read books on their best seller list. The words flow effortlessly.
They are rhythmic. They thrust a person’s imagination into a new and exciting world. Parts of what I’ve written might come close.
I guess that’s up to the reader to decide.
In this book I tell a story. A true story. A story written with a lot of thought. A story being told as accurately and detailed as possible.
A story detailing part of a person's life. Far From Perfect is somewhat informative. I try to pass on as many of the things I’ve learnt as possible.
Far From Perfect is also about the many different people I met during my life. People entered and left. These were people from school. They were neighbors. They were people I met at an abandon 18-wheeler truck trailer, during a time when I didn’t have any other place to stay. They were people I met at events, at work, and even in the middle of the street. I met people through chatrooms, Myspace and Plenty of Fish.
Many of these people took parts of a "far from perfect" life to enjoyable. Their personalities; their character; their charisma made parts of my life exhilarating. They gave me many amazing memories, memories I accumulated over the course of forty years. I relived them vicariously while writing.
With that said, as the title says, my life was far from perfect. I’ve been through plenty of struggles. Some of the struggles I didn’t include, simply because I don’t like thinking about them. I know I’m not the only person who struggled throughout their life. I didn’t set out to write a book. Circumstances led me to writing. Now that the book is finished, I think people might like reading the stories I’ve detailed. Others who’ve been through struggles might relate.
When I started writing, I wasn’t in a good place. My head was filled with all that went wrong. It was filled with all the terrible. As I was writing, I thought about the people I’d known, and all the crazy things we’d been through. I thought about their personalities and their sayings. I often laughed to myself as I wrote about them. They drowned out much of the terrible.
Even with many of the terrible times excluded, I wrote about enough struggles to justify keeping the title. I hope the people who decide to read Far From Perfect find it enjoyable.
Far From Perfect has not been edited by a professional editor. I eliminate as many errors as I could find. However, those who are picky about grammar, probably shouldn't purchase the book. The newest version of Far From Perfect doesn't have any images.
Far From Perfect is intended for readers over the age of 18. However, If you are under 18 and would like to purchase Far From Perfect, I am thinking about creating a shorter version for younger readers, possibly by the end of 2022.
