Is This Important?

For the past month I've been posting copyrighted excerpts of my book, Dementia Diary, on this blog. As I said weeks ago, I hope that getting a taste of the book in this way will prompt more people to buy it (and many have)—but, more importantly, I want people to read it. I wrote it primarily to help caregivers cope with their own situations and I've been gratified by the hundreds of wonderful email comments I've received since my memoir was published. However, only two reader comments have been posted so far for the book excerpts on this blog, leading me to wonder whether anyone is reading these excerpts, and if this is something I should continue. So here's a test of whether this is important to you. If you are reading and enjoying these excerpts, please post a comment and let me know. If I don't receive substantial feedback during the coming week that these excerpts have a following, I will discontinue posting them. Of course, the entire book will continue to be available for purchase from on-line retailers. I hope to hear from you.

Dear Bob,
Thanks for the great comment that you left on: www.heartofthecaregiver.blogspot.com
I was wondering if you have an affilliate program for promoting your book?
Please contact me at my email address: charlestowne111@juno.com
I look forward to getting acquainted, sincerely,
Charles

Bob I just found your link. I am an ombudsman. I represent the families and residents in nursing homes etc.

I also know families that are dealing with this. I also represent people with it.

A good friend of mine has it. I go to visit her from time to time. Funny thing though, even though she is past stage three of Alzheimer's she recognizes me and understands some of what I say. It is not just my imagination either. I wonder why that is. Other people have noticed this.

Please keep writing. I am going to recommend your blog to other people who are going through this.

How about forming an online club? We can you know. Yes we can form a group.
