Pay It Forward

I am a big fan of the movie "Pay It Forward". I believe if everyone would give or do something extra to just 3 strangers before receiving anything from them, our world would totally change in a very positive way.

In February of this year I found a very interesting blog by Serena Art and Design that was promoting "Pay It Forward" throughout the blogsphere and I agreed to participate. Well I got really busy trying to get my new book ready for the editors and time slipped by me faster than I realized. So today is the day that I will attempt to pay this gift forward.

So here is the deal: I will offer a copy of my new book, "Secrets of an Immortal - An Eyewitness Account of 2,800 Years of History" in eBook format, to the first 3 people who do the following:

1. Leave a comment on my blog requesting to join in on my "Pay It Forward" exchange.

2. The 3 people chosen must then post on their own blogs promising 3 different people an act of kindness gift. Because this is a blogsphere "Pay It Forward" program, you must have your own blog to participate in this exchange.

3. I will then notify each of the 3 people that they have been chosen and they will then need to email me so that I can email back my "Pay It Forward" gift to them.

4. Right now it is looking like my eBook is still about 2 months away before the final edit will be complete, so I will send a certificate for a free copy of this eBook as soon as the 3 people who have agreed to the Pay It Forward exchange post their Pay It Forward offers onto their blogs.

In the spirit of the original blogger, I am requesting that the gifts that you offer are gifts that you have created yourself in some fashion.

Good luck and of course Pay It Forward!

Hi Ben, I sent your Pay It Forward gift weeks ago to the address you gave me. I hope you received it okay?
