Remember when I wrote (or more accurately shared Youtube videos) about a certain independently famous and highly talented dance violinist named Lindsey Stirling more than a year ago?
Well, she has a book now, a book about her life story, titled The Only Pirate At The Party. And I bought it! The eBook, from Google Play Store!
Okay, it isn’t exactly a new book. It was released back in January. I’m a horrible fan. Anyway, I just bought it yesterday, on a lovely Friday afternoon, so the book is new to me.
I originally planned this to be my weekend reading material, but I ended up staying up late into Friday evening and finished the entire book before I went to bed. Yikes…
It is a highly entertaining read. Obviously so, that’s why I finished all 272 pages of book in one evening. Like I said, this is a book about Lindsey’s life story. There are stories of her childhood and teen years. Childhood stories are always entertaining to read, right?
Also, there are parts of the book which detailed her struggles and juicy stories on making it in mainstream showbiz as an independent non-singing artist.
I’m not supposed to share her original content in my blog without permission. That would be a violation of copyrights and could potentially land me in trouble.
But I really want to show you proof that there really are juicy stories in her book to hopefully entice you into buying it. Maybe I should break out my rusty de-plagiarizing filter, college student style.
Psst! By the way, she really did come back to that later. There were details. Lots of it!
But my favorite chapter is a chapter that has nothing to do with her childhood stories or her successes as an artist. No… my favorite chapter is a chapter that could fit into one page… oh, well, since I am already walking on the tightropes, might as well…
This chapter is awesome (to me) for quite a few reasons.
- It tells me Lindsey Stirling does not do drugs. That’s great news! I would be devastated if one of my newer favorite artists turns out to be a junkie.
- This is a very environmentally friendly chapter. I mean, yeah sure, I’m reading an eBook so it doesn’t matter. I’m referring to the paperback copies of this book.
- On the surface, this looks like an entirely unnecessary chapter. It is written for a very specific reason: to annoy the hell out of the readers and make them go “WTF?!”. That’s awesome! It is exactly something that I myself would do. Which brings us to point #4.
- This shows Limesey Styling has an annoying sense of humor which is quite similar to mine. No, that did not come out in the right order. You do not compare a superstar with a douchebag, it should be the other way round. So let me rephrase. This shows I have an annoying sense of humor which is similar to Limesey Styling. I have something in common with a superstar musician. That’s so cool!
Anyway, if you are intrigued with the book after my silly introductions, do go ahead and purchase her book. Remember the title: The Only Pirate At The Party. If you are in the US, you could probably grab it in a bookstore near you. Otherwise, there is always the Google Play Store (eBook) or Book Depository (paperback). I don’t use iPhone, so I don’t know the iBooks link…
Also, this is another RealGunners style paid post, if you know what I mean. 😉
I can’t share her book’s contents, but I can share more of her latest Youtube videos for your weekend enjoyments.
