Another interview and a book promotion contest

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016


Listen to another interview about Attending Others. This one is from The Last Word on KSFR, Santa Fe Public Radio.

And for all book-lovers,
an old fashioned promotion:

Whatever you think about, the number and content of customer book reviews on the Amazon website makes a difference. To encourage readers to submit reviews of my memoir, Attending Others, I’m announcing an old-fashioned promotion. Anyone who posts a book review on by 11:59pm (EST), October 1, 2016 will automatically be entered. Three names drawn at random from the pool of entrants will each win a $25 e-gift card from the winner’s choice of the following on-line booksellers: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Powell’s, or Eighth Day Books in Wichita, KS. Here’s what you need to do:

1) If you’ve read (and preferably if you liked) Attending Others, go to the Amazon web page for the book , scroll down to the Customer Review section, and click on the “Write a customer review” button.

2) Write a review. Anything from “I liked it!” to a lyric essay will do. Choose how many stars you think the book deserves. When you submit the review, there will be a short delay before it’s approved by the Amazon folks and appears on the website.

3) Send me an email or Facebook message informing me of your review and supplying some way of contacting you if you win. If I have no contact information for you, an alternate winner may be chosen in your place.

Good reading and good luck. In the mean time, check out the editorial reviews on the Amazon page, now with an endorsement from Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners in Health and subject of the best selling book, Mountains Beyond Mountains.

The Memoir is Finally Here!
