On May 26th, 2010, I made an off-hand comment about my ex-fiancée’s first orgasm coming from a dog and Redditors went nuts. That comment led to an AMA and that AMA led to me writing a book of stories that I never thought anyone would see or give a damn about.
“The Warlizard Chronicles – Adventures with Vodka, Women, and War” has consistently sold for more than 4 years and turned me on to the world of self-publishing. I kept getting messages from people saying they wanted an audio version, but WTF did I know about recording a book?
I opened it up for auditions on ACX (Audible’s company that handles book creation) and received 206 auditions. After going through them, I finally settled on Jeff Machado, a 13-year radio host with a fantastic voice, the right equipment, and the savvy to know how the book should be read.
We went back and forth, got it just right, and I modified the original text to equal the audio version (ask me about WhisperSync), then we submitted it.
Well, it’s out, and we’re crazy proud of it. Ask us anything.
Well, not anything. If you ask about the Warlizard Gaming Forums, the mods will delete it, so be nice and save them the trouble.

Proof from me: See OP.
You can reach me on twitter (@war_lizard), on Snapchat (Warlizard), on Steam (Warlizard) and on Rockstar Social Club (DasWarlizard) or drop by my subreddit (/r/Warlizard).
I have 20+ codes for a free audio version of the book, so give me a good reason and I’ll PM you one (while supplies last).
Let’s do this…
EDIT: I wanted to give a special shoutout to /u/gamerdude17 and the "dankmeme crew" for helping me set this up. I couldn't have done it without them. Great job guys and no matter what lifestyle you choose, I support you -- don't listen to the haters, they just don't know how to be "fabulous".
EDIT 2: SHIT! I forgot to mention, I'm going to be on the next Reddit "Upvoted" podcast with some awesome celebrity cameos and a fun surprise.
In addition, if anyone wants a "Warlizard Gaming Forum" t-shirt or sweatshirt or whatever, go to http://warlizard.spreadshirt.com and get a 15% discount. I don't make a penny off of this, but set it up with the guys over there because people kept asking for a shirt for something that didn't exist.
