This is a “don’t miss” opportunity to learn from the voices of experience.
You will be notified when launch date and procedure for dispersal is firm.
Tip: University of Nebraska Press has ended Publication of the self-published version of my memoir to make way for publicity blitz on revised version. I have been asked by a number of readers how they could get a copy of the self-published version. My spies tell me that Barnes & Nobles (on line) has a few copies left. Also Booksamillion (on line) is selling copies through their “Hard to Find Department, “ for $35.00. Suggest interested parties wait for the cloth bound version to be issued by Nebraska Press in spring/summer 2003. If you would like to be added to the growing list of readers requesting early notification of launch date, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until the next time we meet, remember the word for today is FAITH
