Hi folks,

Some of you know that I just spent some time at RediMed (four hours!) where I had a crisis with my COPD. Really thought this was the big one, Elizabeth! But, turns out I'm too ornery, so bad news for some, good news for others. Anyway, as so often happens along with bad news comes a ray of sunshine. Just notified that my Snippet version of Finding Your Voice is out and for sale for the ridiculously low price of only $1.99.

A snippet is a new form of book and I'm very lucky my agent came up with it for me. What it is, they take an existing book and create a good-sized excerpt of it (an abridged version as it is) and interspersed within the pages are snippets of me on camera explaining and amplifying the points in the text. It's really kind of exciting to watch, imo. We tried very hard to get it out in time for the Christmas market and so if you want to glom onto a copy for yourself or for a gift, just go to https://thesnippetap­p.com/web/writers/Les­Edgerton and glom onto it. (Just kind of ignore the ugly dude speaking...)  Depending on feedback, we're thinking of doing other books in this format. I think it's going to be a winner and it'll be a form you can consider yourself for your own work. It really shows how the publishing community is continuing to think outside the box and really brings books to a new and up-close-and-personal level.

If you grab one and like the idea, please let me know. Your feedback is really important to me.


Thanks for considering buying a copy. Keep it in mind for those always-needed stocking stuffers.

Blue skies,

Readers Digest used to condense books this way.

Glad you are ok after your health scare.

I didn't know that, Dolorah! I've gotten their condensed versions of books before, but never saw any that included videos of the author speaking or reading. Are you sure they included videos?

And thanks--it was really scary, not being able to get my breath!
