I have been so blessed and humbled by the success of my large volume of catch phrase origins and definitions that I want to thank God and those who have had a part in this for this journey. My first such book was published in 2011, called On the Origin of the Cliches and the Evolution of Idioms. It was meant to be a humorous takeoff on Darwin’s controversial work. It caught on so well that I followed up a year later with another volume.
But still, there were so many I couldn’t include. Then in 2013, after thousands of hours of research and work, I published Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions, a small-print huge volume with all those in the first two books and many hundreds more. Then in 2014 I did an update with 75 more included. Of course there are always more popping up which are not even in it. But this version has really gone over around the world. It is available in both paperback and the original in Kindle e-book format, and sells every day somewhere in the world.
I was just notified by the printer that Amazon had purchased a large number of them to meet the high demand. I was really thrilled. If you don’t have your copy, or would like to give one for a holiday gift, head on over to http://stclairpublications or any Amazon site, or Barnes and Noble or whatever “floats your boat.” It makes a great gift and I really appreciate all of those who have purchased it and particularly those who have posted reviews on Amazon! Anyone ordering this book through the end of November from the St. Clair Publications website will be issued a $5.00 gift certificate as a Black Friday special toward the purchase of other books when the order is received. Thanks to everyone!
