Hear Ye, Hear Ye! It’s Finally Here, Yay!

It’s official–no more countdown. No need to watch for, to be patient, to pre-order. The Insider’s Guide to Living Kidney Donation, by Carol Offen and Elizabeth Crais– seven years in the making–is officially published as of today, the 23rd of September, in the year two thousand and twenty-one.

In honor of this special day, we are offering a 25% discount if you order today or tomorrow through BookBaby Bookshop (use code PUBLICATIONDATE).

This is the book we both wish had existed when we were first contemplating donation or transplant. If you are considering either one–or know someone who is–please check it out and let us know what you think.

Launching a Book in the Time of COVID

What a kick it was for Betsy and me to celebrate the launch of our new book, The Insider’s Guide to Living Kidney Donation, with our contributors, supporters, families, and friends this weekend. A book launch COVID-style, that is. The official publication date is next week, on September 23, but after waiting roughly seven years, we couldn’t wait a minute longer.

These were the first pictures we’ve taken together since COVID and certainly since Betsy’s dual transplant in late May. It was small and low key but exciting and very gratifying to sell and sign books in person.

Now we get back to work promoting the book and spreading the word about living kidney donation. You can order the paperback or Kindle on Amazon, through BookBaby–or ask your local bookstore to order it.
