    Just wanted to pass along that Bradblog has publisshed a very good review of your new book over here.

    Hope you are well. Here’s a song I’ve been listening to a lot lately. Dan Tyminski, The Boy Who Would’t Hoe Corn.

Speak Your Mind

Support a 100% people-funded, nonpartisan online news source—where media integrity matters.

1115_SibelSupportIt’s May 8th, the first day of our new Kickstarter campaign. We have 45 days to raise $150,000, and we know we can do it with your help! Make a pledge, subscribe to Newsbud, put the word out. And please take action as soon as possible—the first three to four days of the campaign will be the most critical to our success.

Now is the time to stand up for your right to be informed and help create a news and multimedia network unlike anything else online, in print, or on TV. Newsbud will produce original stories, investigative reports, video-podcasts, editorials, and discussion forums, and it will be a real independent alternative because it will be 100% people funded.

Thank you for all your support,
Sibel Edmonds
