Sarah Silverman and me: HarperCollins Stranger than Fiction: 10 Great Memoirs ebook promotion featuring The Bedwetter, The Cactus Eaters, and Josh Kilmer-Purcell

Here's the latest bit of news.  Sarah Silverman and I  are part of the same e-book promotion at HarperPerennial called "Stranger Than Fiction," featuring a list of selected HarperCollins memoirs.  Anyways, this promotion, which is live now and ends on February 25, allows you to buy a spanking-new e-book version of Sarah Silverman's The Bedwetter, my first book, The Cactus Eaters: How I Lost my Mind and Almost Found Myself on the Pacific Crest Trail,  and other bestsellers, including I Am Not Myself These Days by Josh Kilmer-Purcell for  less than you would pay to buy a gingerbread soy latte at The Sour Cup or a bean burrito at Cafe Indigestion.   But you'd better buy  this very minute because the whole thing ends in just over a week.

Here is the complete list of participating authors:

The Girl Who Fell to Earth by Sophia Al-Maria
Fante by Dan Fante
Dishwasher by Pete Jordan
The Cactus Eaters by Dan White
I Am Not Myself These Days by Josh Kilmer-Purcell
How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
Everything is Going to be Great by Rachel Shukert
Everything is Wrong with Me by Jason Mulgrew
The Cactus Eaters by Dan White
The Bedwetter by Sarah Silverman
Working Stiff by Grant Stoddard
The Cactus Eaters by Dan White

Wait -- I accidentally put my own book more than once in that list.  Darn it. I'll go back and correct that just as soon as I get the chance!!

By the way, this blog entry will self-destruct on February 26 as soon as this promotion ends.

Thank you. Yes, something keeps happening to get the word out (and those somethings rarely come from me directly! Truly, it has a strange and unpredictable life all its own at this point.
