On Tuesday, readers were given the opportunity to win one of three copies of Tribes of Eden, the new novel by friend of Time Goes By and renowned geriatrician Bill Thomas.
“Thomas said he used a post-apocalyptic scenario [in Tribes of Eden] to create a dystopian environment in which everyone is stripped of safety, security and independence and put into the power of an authoritarian regime.
“In other words, they experience what it’s like to be placed in a nursing home against their will,’ he said.”
Thanks to the internet’s abundance of nifty little tools such as, in this case, a random number generator, we have (drum roll) three winners. They are: Tarzana, Steve Kemp and Ann MacKay. Congratulations to all of you.
I’m sorry not everyone can win. For those who did not, here is how you can purchase Tribes of Eden. Remember, Bill is giving all proceeds to the extremely worthy Eden Alternative project.
The paperback is available through Amazon where there is also a Kindle ebook edition.
A Nook ebook edition is available at Barnes & Noble.
And there is an iTunes edition here.
With Good Friday, Passover and Easter all crammed into one weekend this year, I assume many of you are busy with family obligations.
I think that calls for something simple and easy today. I’ve been curious for a long while about where regular TGB readers live. Yeah, I can check my statistics program, but that doesn’t tell me who lives where.
So let’s do a location check today – city and state (country, too, if you are not in the U.S.) Then I’ll collate it all and publish a list one day next week.
Happy holiday to those who celebrate.
