You know how much I love and appreciate you wonderful blog readers, right?
Here’s the thing: In case you missed the posts, I had to have surgery last month. (I owe you at least one more post o’ stories about that, by the way.) I’m still recovering well–doing kickboxing, Zumba, cooking, planning new life adventures, writing, all the things I like to do.
But now, the hospital bills are rolling in. Because of my self-employment status, I pay for my own (high-deductible) health insurance, and these bills are all but obliterating my savings. And unfortunately, I’ve not only got a few more surgery-related bills coming, but also will be paying for non-cosmetic dental procedures and car repairs in the near future.
I’m not asking for donations. I thought about putting a PayPal Donation button on this page, but, as a self-published author, I have more to offer in return for your money.
Instead, I’d be immensely grateful if you bought a copy of my book! Maybe you haven’t yet, but you’ve considered it. Maybe you have your own copy, but need a gift idea for someone else.
I’ve reduced the price of both the Kindle and the paperback versions. The Kindle version will be available for $3.99, and the paperback for $11.60. (As I’m writing this post, it looks like the old prices are still in use, but this should change by tomorrow.) I also brought back the little side widget there with a photo of the book and a link to its Amazon.com page.
It may seem like it wouldn’t make a difference to buy one book, but it does–emotionally as well as financially. I really need the help, especially if I’m going to buy gas money to drive places that will not only contribute to this blog, but may provide research opportunities for future books.
And really, if I can’t fund my adventures, what are y’all gonna come here to read about??
