In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month – An offer to survivors

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m late to the game. Sue me. Wait! I already am Sue! Ha!)

If you are a breast cancer survivor or know a survivor or have lost someone to this disease (I have), I have an offer for you to mark 2013 Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In past years, I would complete the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer course in Boston (it was a trip around the Charles starting and finishing at the Hatch Memorial Shell on the Esplanade. Also the site of some of my deeper sunburns). By walking and getting pledges, I have raised nearly $5,000 for the Boston chapter of the American Cancer Society and I aim to do so again.

Yeah, I’m the big blob on the far left.

In the meantime, if you are a survivor, know a survivor who might like the book or have lost someone to this disease, if you contact me, I will send you a signed copy (Sorry, I’m going to limit this offer to the US for now. I’m paying for the postage. UK? Canada? You’ll get your chance when I sell more books. Except for Tiff. She’ll get a signed copy).

Link to These Foolish Things on Amazon

This is a $12.75 value being offered for free (while supplies last). The book is well-received and there is a sequel to be released shortly and a prequel in the works. People are already casting an imaginary movie (Could happen).

So, to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I will send a signed copy of my book “These Foolish Things” (not the Deborah Moggach book. You’ll have to talk to her) to breast cancer survivors and those who have lost loved ones to this disease.

And for those of you who have bought the book? Thank you for your support.
