Are you listening?
I know I have been MIA of late. I’m sorry.
Almost two-weeks ago, I moved from Oregon to Colorado, unfortunately — a few days after arriving I had a mini stroke, something called TIA. My blood pressure was 174/119 and climbing by time the ambulance arrived.
I am recovering and taking it easy. I did not experience any paralysis, but writing (read staring at a computer) has been a little difficult because of the killer “Thunderclap” headaches that accompany this ailment. I am still very weak and doing even little things makes my heart race like mad.
Since I write for a living, you can imagine how challenging the past week or so has been. Anyhow, you know me, even when I am down I find something interesting and positive to do and this time it’s no different. You can say that I have had to , “Deal with the Devil,” and you would be right in more ways than one!
Drum Roll Please
I would like to share with you a groundbreaking new book called, DEAL WITH THE DEVIL — published by William Morrow/Harper Collins, written by Peter Lance. It hits the shelves on July, 2nd, but you can get a sneak peek here. PLEASE, Check out the Deal with the Devil Press Release and share it with any appropriate entities you are connected to. I would be grateful.
Also, just to be clear, none of my links here are “affiliate” links. I am not making money off of anything here, so when I encourage you to check this book out it is truly because the author is a genuine friend, a stand-up guy, and a brilliant spot-on journalist who I am happy to help out. Our country needs more real journalists — like Peter, who are willing to go to great lengths to tell the unsavory truths of what really goes on in places like the Department of Justice (DOJ), the FBI, the CIA and more.
So, Who Exactly Is This Peter Lance Character?
Peter Lance is a best-selling author and five-time EMMY winning investigative journalist and then some. Through the odd twist of mutual respect, mutual colleagues and social media we have had the pleasure of getting to know one another over the past year or so. He is a wonderful guy and his investigations will blow you away. I consider him a friend and I have learned much from him.
While I have been recovering I have been helping promote his incredible new book DEAL WITH THE DEVIL and have set up the OFFICIAL Peter Lance Books FaceBook “fan” page. Here is a wonderful review from Publishers Weekly that you will dig, and you can also check out the GoodReads page for it — and his other books, here.
Are You A Fan? You Should Be!
Below is the header for the new FaceBook fan page. Any of you that would like a chance to receive a first edition, signed copy, please click on the header image to visit the page, and then “Like” the page. It’s that easy.
On a side note, isn’t it a great header image considering I am most definitely not a graphic designer?
The last piece of info I’d like to convey today is this…keep your eyes peeled because I will be doing my own one-on-one interview with Mr. Peter Lance. I will be sharing it with all of YOU here first on Cheri Speak. If you would like to suggest anything for me to ask, just drop a comment here.
Oops, I fibbed, there is ONE more thing…
I miss you. I promise I will soon be back posting prolifically.
