This is just to let you know that there is a new book being published on Tuesday 7th October in aid of a very deserving charity, and I’m very pleased to say that I am a part of it.
It's called “From The Heart Of Ireland” and is a collection of inspirational true-life stories compiled to raise funds for the benefit of Laura's Hope, an international charity devoted to finding a cure for Huntington’s disease.
My story, African Redemption, is in there along with Gay Byrne and Mary Kennedy, John Sheahan of the Dubliners, Con Cluskey of the Bachelors, politicians Liam Twomey, Marian Harkin, John Perry, Liz McManus and Gerry Adams, journalists Mary Kenny and Angela Doyle; authors Ken Bruen Ultan Cowley, Soinbhe Lally and Martin Malone; businessmen Feargal Quinn and Bill Cullen, world famous sports physiotherapist Gerard Hartmann and plenty more.
It has been compiled in such a way that whenever you have got a few minutes to spare – even while the commercials are interrupting your favourite TV programme – you can read a full story, or two. You can dip in and out whenever the mood takes you and in just a few minutes gain inspiration from one of the many stories.
I know you’ll enjoy it yourself and I'm sure it would make a great present for someone else.
Brendan Power, who compiled the book, will be talking about it on Ireland AM (TV3) on Thursday 9th October sometime between 8.00 and 9.00 and if you would like to know more about it , have a look at www.BrandonBooks.com/new_titles.html . If you’d like to know a little more about Laura’s Hope charity, have a look at www.LaurasHope.com
The more people who ask for the book at their local bookshop, the more likely it is to get promoted by the shops so I hope you’ll help us by doing just that – and be sure to tell me what you think of my story.
