Life is So Sweet

Because Earth life is what it is, we all go through a certain amount of stress. We also go through a certain amount of joy that makes us step back and really appreciate all we have. I've been counting my blessings lately that I get to work in an industry I love, and now as the senior editor for Valor Publishing Group LLC, I have the opportunity to work with an amazing team of publishing professionals and some of the most talented new authors in the country. One of those new authors is Utah State Attorney General Mark L. Shurtleff.

When I was first asked to edit Mark's novel, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. Was he getting all this attention just because he's the Attorney General? Was Valor publishing his book just because he's running for Senate? I opened the file and my jaw dropped. Mark's writing is brilliant, lyrical, and masterful. I have genuinely enjoyed every minute I have spent working on this manuscript. Again, I say, life is sweet.

And it gets even sweeter - from now until Labor Day, you can preorder a copy of Mark's novel, "Am I Not a Man: The Dred Scott Story" for a special price. This is an heirloom-quality, first edition book, personally autographed by Mark and delivered to your door before you could get it off a store shelf. Click here for more information.

In addition, if you believe strongly in freedom and you would like to share your feelings through the written word, Valor is sponsoring an essay contest. You can win a dinner for two with Mark Shurtleff and a copy of the book. Click here to read more about that.

This book is the next must-have publication for you and your family, library, and school. Read all about it now and learn how the actions of this one brave man, Dred Scott, shaped the nation we live in today.

I agree with you 100%, Tristi. When I first received Mark's manuscript in my inbox I PRAYED he could write. I had the identical response when I read "Am I Not a Man? The Dred Scott Story". Mark is indeed a lyrical, masterful writer. This is a "must buy" book and sit on the shelves of every home, school and public library.
