Ok, so they tell me you’re supposed to “sell yourself.” I find that hard to do without feeling like I’m boasting, so I almost never talk about my books. But I found out today about something cool, so here it is.
A few months ago, Rocky Mountain Rescue received an award presented by Patricia Limerick. A video was made and is on Youtube here, she mentions Playing for Real at 3:45, and apparently she was impressed. This is excellent recognition, as Professor Limerick is, among other notable achievements, a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship, also known as the Genius Grant. As a matter of fact, it’s hard to imagine a better compliment for my first book! Yes, I know all the RMR members sitting around her in the video, they are fantastic people. The video is interesting and talks about RMR, why people join and stay, and a bit more talk about Playing for Real (if you want to watch such a long video).
