The day in, day out grind of fighting for what you believe in can be filled with victories, large and small, but they largely go unrecognized. Meanwhile the energy required to persevere through all of the struggle’s unforeseen challenges can leave you exhausted and questioning if you will continue.
Therefore it is with great pleasure that I mention one of the authors I’ve been lucky enough to work with. His name is Mickey Z., and we have published two of his books, although his real body of work is to be found in his activism. Huffington Post recognizes this, and has run a feature on Mickey at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nancy-ruhling/astoria-characters-the-al_b_6734810.html. Please take a moment to read what they have to say about his grassroots work.
Despite his serious subject matter I’ve always found Mickey mixes levity with his entertaining, unorthodox approach to the real-world horrors we live with. CPR For Dummies, the first tile we released from Mickey, is currently on sale at a steep discount in Kindle format. His followup Darker Shade of Green is a quick read, and you can own the two of them for the cost of a large name brand coffee.
