    I’ve got the NYC event marked.. I’m looking forward to meeting you!

    If you’ll be around the area before/after the event, and want to swim/bike/run let me know and I’ll do what I can to hook you up…

    Hi William:

    I am the manager of an indie book shop in Clinton, NJ. Just a few things, promise. First, I’m wondering if you could please add Indiebound.org as a purchase option for those that visit your web site.

    I have read you book and loved it. I really do think that it is going to do exceptionally well. I would love to put a link to your web site in our e-newsletter as well as on my staff picks page. I can’t do that though if Indiebound is not there.

    Indiebound is the portal to web based sales for indie shops across the country. It would be so cool if you were to add this. To find out more visit Indiebound.org. You can even become an affiliate of Indiebound and really show your support for thos that hand-sell and promote the books that are worth reading, like yours.

    I would love for you to come to Clinton. Our Politically Incorrect Book Club is gonna love this book as much as I have. OK.

    I do hope that you consider this request William as it would mean so much.


    Rob Dougherty, Manager
    Clinton Book Shop

    I was at your UC Irvine event and I just wanted to thank you yet again for coming out. All of us AAR kids gained something from having heard you speak.

    Incidentally, I just finished my copy of your book and, amongst a million other things, I have to note that I love your comparison of Unitarians to non-alcoholic beer. I have never been able to properly articulate my annoyance with Unitarians, and I think I’m going to be quoting you quite gratuitously from now on (with credit, of course).
