CNN will present a four-part program titled 1968, beginning at 6:00 pm PDT this coming Sunday, May 27. The previews tell me it will deal with all the earthshaking events of that historic year.Of course, CNN is doing this to promote my novel, ’68, published in 2011. I’m a little dismayed that it took them this long to get behind my book; but hey, better late than never. Am I right?
It will be interesting to see which events CNN highlights. I’m sure they’ll hit a few that I missed. But, I’d be willing to bet they will skip two items I cover in detail: (1) the Oakland Raiders vs. Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl II on January 14; and (2) the Veterans' Day parade in Vallejo, CA, on November 11. If CNN covers both of those events, I’ll come wash your car (schedules permitting, obviously).If the program sparks your interest, send a message with your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a copy of ’68. Signed by the author, of course. All I ask is that you post a review for me on Amazon.com. CNN may reach a lot of people, but let’s face it: Amazon rules.
