Thanks to my friend, Andrew ‘Doc’ Proctor, here’s the talk I gave at the fund-raising kick-off for the Monte Cristo Independent Bookshop in downtown New London.

Please donate as much as you’re able at

Also, as I shared here a couple of days ago, I will donate $5 per hard copy book I sell in June. All of my books are available here on the blog or directly from Amazon.

Let’s get a bookshop built.

Thanks for reading and watching, you have my love,
