Hiking Southwest Utah and Adjacent Areas, Volume Two wins writing award

I think we can all agree that nature and outdoor activity are winners. I’m fortunate that my hiking book, Hiking Southwest Utah and Adjacent Areas, Volume Two, recently won a Silver Quill Award (2nd Place) in the non-fiction category of the League of Utah Writers Published Book Contest. It is especially noteworthy, since the contest was open to any writer, not just League members.I believe this award is due mostly to the incredible areas my wife Deb and I hike. I’m occasionally able to capture…See More

My hiking book is now available at Zion National Park (Utah)

We all like to think our writing, however wonderful, also has commercial value. My recently published hiking book Hiking Southwest Utah and Adjacent Areas has a dozen or so online sales each month—not bad. Now, thanks to the Zion National Park Foundation, my hiking guide is available at Zion National Park Visitor Center.Zion has approximately three million visitors per year. While they don’t all check out the visitor center, tens (hundreds?) of thousands do. I imagine at least a few thousand…See More

My Ebook Publication

                      Why We Left the Left: Personal Stories by Leftists/Liberals Who Evolved to Embrace Libertarianism is now available (retailing for $3.99 in ebook format). The book examines a political question that intrigues almost everyone who studies, participates, or is interested in politics: “Why do people identify with a certain ideology and/or political party?” Numerous scholarly and popular books examine political ideology/party identification and why certain ideologies attract certain individuals. This book examines that question in two separate, yet joined phases. Why do people initially identify with the Left/liberalism and why do these same individuals abandon that ideology to evolve into libertarians? This inquiry is unique in its focus on 23 former liberals/leftists who become libertarians.

One popular conception of libertarians is that they are, for the most part, disgruntled old white guys. While that group is represented, more than 25 percent of the stories are from women and more than two-thirds are by people younger than 50. This gender and generational diversity extends to occupations—contributors include college students, law students, an attorney, a professional artist, public school teachers, a chemist, writers, a filmmaker, a law professor, a stay-at-home mom, a firefighter, the CEO of a $40 million company, a TV reporter, an editor, the CEO of a free market think tank, and a research engineer.

Estores in which Why We Left the Left will be offered for sale ($3.99) include:
Amazon Kindle; iBookstore; Barnes & Noble; Sony; Kobo; Copia; Gardners; Baker & Taylor; and eBookPie. (Currently offered for sale at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, the others will follow.)

I urge you to purchase the book and write a review from wherever it was purchased. A free Kindle app to read ebooks for several types of electronic devices (PCs, Macs, iPhone, iPad, and others) is found at http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000493771.

Address all inquiries to Tom Garrison at: whywelefttheleft@yahoo.com. Consider visiting the Why We Left the Left Facebook page. Your comments are welcome.
