Hey all you Rodney fans, colleagues, students and friends—Rodney has been lighting up our lives for years, too, and we know that one of Rodney’s dreams is for more people to check out his book, Spiritual Wanderer.

We want to help him realize that dream and give him and his family a nice income boost at a critical time. They face an uncertain financial future and even when he’s cured, there’s still that nagging little bit about him being unemployed.

It’s a long shot, but you can help. We’re taking an unconventional step here as publishers, but then consider our inspiration, hmmm? How can we not get a little crazy to help boost Rodney’s spirits?

We’ve decided to sign over all revenues from sales of Spiritual Wanderer to Rodney for the rest of 2010. Our publishing house, ReadTheSpirit Books, already is rare among American publishers for splitting the proceeds from book sales 50-50 with our authors. So, we’re signing over our half of each book sale to Rodney and his family. Other than the cost of simply printing and mailing the book, Rodney gets all the proceeds from every sale now and for the rest of 2010.

So, we’re hoping you can help: If you’ve been teetering on the fence about ordering Rodney’s book via Amazon—do it today. Now. Then spread the word as far as you can. Each book sold will generate a significant chunk of change for Rodney and his family. Besides, the book will only cost you $10 bucks.

We really have our eye—along with Rodney—on trying to get his book into lots of people’s hands. We’re hoping that you’ll fire up your email lists, Facebook pages, Twitter accounts—and spread the word. Legitimate and honest reviews on Amazon and elsewhere will help, too.

Buy Rodney’s book at Amazon now.

With the help of all of us, Rodney will come through this tough stuff good to go back into journalism—and he’ll head back into the profession with a book that he can boast shot way up the Amazon list while he was holed up in the hospital.

Is this a slightly crazy, unconventional idea? Sure.

But so is our friend.
