Once again, not really giving away the world. BUT giving away an e-book about the world and a map of the world.
Close enough, eh?
First, the map. Have you ever thought about the fact that most maps in the U.S. have the Americas first (on the left side of the map) when, in reality, there is no left/first side of the world?
Why not put Africa and Asia first and America second?
Well, in other countries, they do do that. Here’s a map I bought here in Cambodia. Asia/Africa first, Americas second. Hmmm… Same world, but looks soooo different, huh?
I’m also a HUGE fan of the upside-down map. Who’s to say the “northern” hemisphere is on top? There’s really no top & bottom to the world. We are not right-side-up in the universe. We’re just twirling and spinning and revolving around the sun.
Second, the e-book. In 2014, I wrote an ebook called We Dream of Cambodia. It’s all about this country & people we fell in love with in 2010 & how we longed to be back here for good but couldn’t be.
Today I’m going to give a free copy of the book to EVERYONE who wants it (all you have to do is leave a comment and say “ebook please!”).
If you have time this month to read it (it’s not that long), I would loooove for you to, because, on October 29, I’m releasing a new e-book about the reason we couldn’t be in Cambodia when we wanted to be: Gabe’s battle with anxiety.
It is raw. And honest. And the scariest thing I’ve ever written for public consumption.
And, if you’ve read We Dream of Cambodia, it makes the new e-book all that more miraculous and crazy and God-awesome. So:
To be eligible to win a FREE wall map of the WORLD (my friend Pam has it at her house and is excited to send it to you), leave a comment telling me your favorite place you’ve ever visited. (We’ll choose one random winner.)
AND if you want a FREE e-book, just say, “free e-book please!” and it’s yours (everyone’s a winner!) I’ll email you a PDF within 24 hours.
Thanks, friends! See you back here tomorrow for more winning!
