Extra Content For IN A HANDFUL OF DUST Paperbacks & Giveaway!

I got my author copies of the paperback of IN A HANDFUL OF DUST over the weekend. There's nothing like a big box on your front porch sealed in tape that says NEW RELEASES, let me tell you. But I don't need 25 copies of my own book, either, so I thought I'd give away a few.

What does the paperback have to offer that the hardcover doesn't? 

Extra content! There's an essay from me about the research that went into DUST (more than you think - polio, dehydration and horse hooves, oh my!), a little about what went into writing a 2500+ mile road trip on foot (and keeping it interesting for the reader - not easy, mind you), as well as an original short story about Mother, titled To My Mother

There's also a sneak peak at A MADNESS SO DISCREET, so if you're getting antsy for that, this can tide you over.

The paperback of IN A HANDFUL OF DUST releases on September 8th - and is available for pre-order now (you know, in case you don't win.)

Thank you! I love generating the extra content. There's so much that goes into the writing process, I love that I have the opportunity to share it with my readers!
