This week only you can download my novelette, Sejal: The Walk for Water for your Kindle for free. Check it out on Amazon here.
Of course, you can always download Sejal for free, but this is a convenient way to get it directly on your Kindle.
Sejal is always a tough thing for me to promote. I’m not interested in making it a best-selling book, I just want more people to be aware of the water crisis in India. Sometimes it’s hard to keep those lines straight, and know what’s appropriate and what’s not when promoting a book like this. I don’t want it be about me, not even by accident, so I too-often default to not push the book.
I hope that the Kindle giveaway will expose more people to the story. If you can help by sharing the link, http://www.amazon.com/Sejal-Walk-Water-Brad-Pauquette-ebook/dp/B00B2WZ0L4/ that would be fantastic. Together, we can expose more readers to the water crisis and facilitate action on this issue.
My friend Heather Shaw, who is an extremely talented writer, left a review on Goodreads. Here’s my favorite excerpt: Before I read this book, I knew, in theory, that clean water supply was a problem for people around the world. But now I have a face, a village, a story to help me translate those statistics into a human reality. Though Sejal is a fictional character, she and her village are vividly imagined and intimately described. As with all excellent fiction, the reader identifies with Sejal’s humanity and shares her experience, and you cannot come to the end without caring deeply about the life-changing significance of a single well.
I hope this is true for lots of readers, and I hope it inspires real action.
If you’ve already read Sejal, please consider leaving an honest review on Goodreads.com or Amazon.com today (click the links respectively to find the book). Community reviews are a great way to expose new readers to books that you find important, whether it’s this one or other great books you’ve read.
Thank you so much to everyone who has read Sejal, and even more so to folks who have taken action and/or given financially to resolve the water crisis in India and around the world. A single well makes such a huge difference for real live human beings, and it starts changing lives immediately.
Download and share Sejal: The Walk for Water for free on Amazon through Friday. Thanks for your help.
