FREE books!

I recently "met" a fellow author who has written an interesting book about traveling around the world for a year, living life as it came. As he tells it, "I mustered cattle. I volunteered with children. I went scuba diving. I grew a mullet. I fought bulls. I made love on a beach." And more.

Adam has a good sense of humor and an easy flowing pen. His first book, Scratch Beginnings, received a lot of positive press. He and I share the belief that you can go anywhere, regardless of how humble your beginnings and also the certainty that, in our increasingly global world, it is critical that we leave the comfort of our own country on occasion to see how the rest of the world lives. Travel opens our eyes to the human condition, in all of its shades. Travel sparks creativity, strengthens compassion, and interconnects us as one human race under one sky (hence the name of my publishing company "One Sky Publishing").

If you would like to check out Adam's book, all I ask is that you comment on this post. Start a dialogue. Have you traveled? Where? Why? How did it affect you? I'll send you a link to download his book for free. But his FREE offer is only good until next Wednesday, so act now.

Plus, I'll send you a link to download my book, SILENT SKY. The digital format will be free for a few days and I'll tell you how to get it.

Talk to you soon.

  1. Okay, I'm up for it! I think my most memorable trip was to Greece. My kids (then ages 14 and 16) and I visited my sister and brother-in-law who were teachers in Athens -- so we had built-in tour guides! We toured Athens as well as the Peloponnesian peninsula. I came out of it with a sense of long history that we don't even approach here in the U.S. And, although I had traveled to other places outside the U.S., this trip reminded me again of how different other cultures are, how little they can get by with and still be content, and how homogenized our American culture really is.

  2. So true, that many people around the world get by with so much less and are still content. I would even say more content. Instead of working insanely long hours to chase the mighty dollar, many cultures take long lunches with friends and enjoy social outings in the evenings over food and wine and music and dance AND still manage to take a 4 week vacation.

    Getting by with less. Less money more joy? A great philosophy for all.
