I hope you will indulge me in a bit of blatant self-promotion. The book I spent much of this last year writing, agonizing over, and swearing about is finally out and I’m pleased as punch. In fact, I don’t much like punch so I’m pleased as a good bourbon at the end of a long day–and I don’t get much more pleased than that. To celebrate I’m giving away a copy of the book. All you have to do is leave a comment on the blog. (Sorry, comments by e-mail don’t count.) My Own True Love will draw a name out of a hat on November 13.
Why November 13? Mankind: The Story of All of Us was written as a companion to a History Channel series of the same name.* The first episode is scheduled to air on November 13. Enjoy the trailer:
Watch the show. Leave a comment (but don’t wait until you’ve seen the show or you’ll be too late to win a copy of the book.)
Now if you’ll excuse me, I think do the happy dance up and down the hall.
*There are also graphic novels dealing with the same material. Too cool.
