Great News Regarding our new book "Advocacy Heals U"
My amazing coauthor, Joni James Aldrich, and I just received some incredible news today about our new book that its going to print, by our publisher, Motivational Press, in October! The first bit of good news, after reviewing our final manuscript for “Advocacy Heals U -15 Keys to Fast Track Results and Emotional Fulfillment” our book is being nominated for a Pulitzer Prize! If that wasn’t enough…The second bit of good news, we are in the process of working on our book signing tour with our publisher and Joni just called me this morning to let me know that we will be kicking the tour off with a keynote speech and subsequent book signing at the prestigious, Rosalyn Carter Institute’s National Summit, in Americus Georgia, on October 22 & 23. If any our friends would like to attend this very special event with Joni & I, just let us know. If you would like Joni and I to personally sign your copy, we would be honored to do so at either this event, or at any of the events we are planning during our book signing tour (details and formal schedule to follow shortly). Joni and I are so truly excited to start these new chapters in our lives (no pun intended!) If you would like us to visit your small town, or big city, bookstore for a book signing we would love to do it. Just let us know! The following is JUST one great review from my friend Dr. Bob Wachter, there are many more to follow. A big “shout out” to Bob, for all of your continued support our efforts!!!
“In this important book, Joni James Aldrich and Chris Jerry describe what it is like to lose a loved one because of a medical illness and the all-too-frequent hazards of our medical care system. Impressively, they have channeled their pain into a series of lessons to help others who – like them – wish to use their experience to try to improve the healthcare system. Their strength, wisdom, and courage are remarkable, and their book will be an essential guide to others who wish to follow a similar path.”
