For All of Us

This Sunday, January 10, 2016, my book Owning Ourselves is going to be available for free downloading on Kindle. Please, please…help yourself to a copy and tell everyone you’d like to have one too.

‘For All of Us’ was the working title of the book while it was being written. It’s how I felt. It’s what I meant. Then my editor asked me to consider how I would search for or ‘google’ such a title. I paused. I couldn’t really say. So I retitled. She then asked me what the price of the book was going to be. There was a longer pause.

I answered honestly that I sincerely wished that I could simply give it away. She paused. She smiled. She told me that no one had ever answered that question that way to her before.

She then told me that one of the funny things about people is that there can be the presumption that if something is free, then it must not be worth much. It was my turn to smile. I pointed out that air was free and was worth everything to all of us. We both smiled and understood our different points of view.

So I agreed to a deal with Kindle that allows me to offer the e version for free once in a while. The beginning of a New Year seems like a good time to invite everyone to the party.

Have fun.

Let me know what you think.
