The dream is real

Overcome: My Life in Pursuit of A Dream is now up on Amazon and available for preorder. I am given to understand that the price one will actually pay will be a good bit less than is shown, as Amazon discounts all its books by 35 to 40 percent. The official pub date is March 29, 2016. I'm so excited to attend the book launch/ 98th birthday party for Dr. Simmons! I'll be flying back to Oakland for it in mid April. There will be pictures.

    1. Wow, that's a lot! I'm sure the price will come down after release though. Amazon builds in a discount for all its books.

    1. Joanne, it's autobiography with history woven through, because the subject was certainly in the midst of history being made for almost 100 years!

    1. Gary, thank you. Already I see things I'd change, of course. They say books are never finished, just abandoned once inked.
