Something a little self-serving tonight. I’d like to ask your help. The other day I had to meet with a woman who was interested in enlisting me for a writing project. She mentioned that she had gone to Amazon.com and read the readers’ reviews of my books. I check those out periodically, and assume that potential readers do, too. But I had never drawn the very obvious conclusion that publishers and others who might have interest in my work also read those comments. So, I’d like to ask those of you who feel strongly about one of my books to go to the page for that book on Amazon.com and follow the instructions for writing a reader’s review. It will help me, it will help potential readers, and it will enlarge the discourse on the individual books. I’d be most appreciative.
I also must make a short observation on the strength of the responses that I’m getting to my comments about Leonard Peltier. There obviously is a great deal of hurt and frustration among very many good people about Mr. Peltier’s plight. I don’t know quite what to do with that yet, or how I can carry that forward. But I just want you all to know that it’s on my mind.
