Yes, this is a commercial

Hello, folks.

Today, I will not blast you with my political views, nor my rants about life.

I will neither bore you with my anecdotes, or try to change you to my way of thinking.

No, today I am going to be especially selfish, and definitely self promoting.

Today, I am going to tell you about the book I just published.

Yes, I am hoping that someone actually PAYS for something I wrote.  I know, that is absolutely...capitalist.


The book is called "A Prayer for the Dying."  Copied and pasted straight from the book's website, here's the synopsis (da da dum!!!):

"A Prayer For The Dying is the story of a young boy who loses the brother he looked up to to a new, deadly strain of the Human Immune Deficiency Virus. Using his knack for biology and chemistry, he is able to discover a cure...with one catch.

The only person that the cure works on is himself.

Determined to help others avoid his brother's fate, he turns to the United States government to help further his research. Escorted by two unpredictable (but very good at what they do) agents from a special division of the Drug Enforcement Agency, he attempts to make a trip cross country to the nation's capital to continue his work.

But possessing a cure to one of the deadliest diseases ever inside his own bloodstream invites some unscrupulous company. Knowing the cure is worth billions, one powerful enemy is determined that he never reaches his destination."

I know, you are saying "where the hell is my credit card!  I am buying this right now!"

But wait, there's more!

I am also trying to raise some money with part of the proceeds for the following charities:

National Down Syndrome Society
Go Red For Women
National Autism Association

Now here's the funky fresh part...all of these charities have affected me somehow.

amfar is for AIDS research...lost an aunt to AIDS 20 years ago.

Go Red for Women is for the ladies dealing with the risk of heart attacks...my wife had one on Xmas Eve 2011.

Down Syndrome Society and Autism...my 6 year old has both.

(The Kleenex is on the right if you need any).

All jokes aside, it is a great book, and you would be supporting a great cause.  I see that over 6,000 people have read my blog.  That's pretty cool.  If we can get that many sold, a little help can go a long way for these great causes.

OK, selling crap is over...next time, I'll return with more observations that y'all will roll your eyes at.

But, at least I'll be consistent...a lot more than the U.S. Government is, right?

(Damn it, I made a political statement....crap.)
