Just a test - really!

I am testing the new linkage system to from my blog in preparation for the publication of the 12th printing of my book A Dietitian's Cancer Story (at the printer as I type!). Currently Amazon is sold out of the 11th printing, however, copies are still available at:

(1) The American Institute for Cancer Research where I donate proceeds from the sale of my books (call 1-800-843-8114 for single copies or pretty good discounts on orders of 10 or more books) or

(2) My local independent book store Nicola's Books in Ann Arbor, MI (personalized autographed books can be ordered through their website at or by calling 1-734-662-0600 and speaking to Nicola directly or any of her helpful staff).

Both Amazon and AICR do have copies of the Spanish edition of my book  Historia De Cancer De Una Dietista ready to ship.

Just to explain a bit, if you purchase anything from after arriving there via the links on my blog, I do received a small percentage of your total purchase amount (no matter if you buy my book, any book, or any thing that Amazon sells). I use this amount of income to off-set the monthly fee for my website and small annual fees for my three blogs in order to keep them completely free of advertising.

Just to give my blog readers a heads-up, I do re-read my book every time I reprint it, looking for information to correct (rare - I have a great editor), keep but update (yes, science keeps moving along), omit (yes, some things just go out of date or out of print), or even add (yes! this printing has some new material, which was great fun to think about and include).

I'll let you know when delivery is scheduled. :-)

So, I hope I can figure out how to correctly navigate the next step in all this new technology.  For me, this is a step, step, step process, not the natural leap that those who grew up with computers (like my children) take in stride.  :-)
