Please make note of 1st-time appearances in St. George, Utah and more appearances in Idaho in November! My signings in Rexburg and Pocatello this weekend were tremendous. All combined we sold over 500 books at both venues! That's a lot of "Tennis Shoes" readers--many of them NEW to the series. Unfortunately, many packages won't be opened until Christmas morning (sorry about that. Not my fault! Talk to your parents and grandparents!). It's been a great thrill to meet so many of my readers and fans these past few weeks. May the signings continue!!!
OCTOBER'S "FREE STUFF" SPECIAL
As I have mentioned in previous posts, throughout the month of October, orders of $20 or more (before shipping) placed directly through me by calling 801-495-0555 or by ordering on the website http://www.heimerrecords.com/ will receive a choice of FREE STUFF. THIS SPECIAL ENDS ON OCT. 31st! I've never revealed the identity of the freebies. Just know that they are valuable, previously published, and created by me. I give the list to customers as they order or if you order online, I contact you by email. If you're looking for great stuff either for your personal library or just for autographed Christmas gifts, this is a deal that only an author could provide for his fans. For goodness sake CALL AND ASK FOR CHRIS!
As mentioned on the calender of events, this weekend I will give my presentation at the Sheraton Hotel in Salt Lake City for the Book of Mormon Archeological Convention entitled, "American Exceptionalism and Book of Mormon Geography." I'm sure I'll post portions of the speech on my blog next week, but I would welcome anyone to come listen to the presentation as well as other great presentations by a host of accredited speakers. My hour-long presentation, I believe, begins around 11:45 AM. My subject (if the title isn't clear) is to discuss recent trends among certain LDS "for-profit" organizations to try and mingle issues of American nationalism and nativism with tenets of Book of Mormon scholarship, which I feel is a MAJOR no-no. The Church has never defined where Book of Mormon cities and events took place. Nevertheless, some are trying to convince us that Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon make these things clear, proclaiming a position that even the Lord's prophets have never proclaimed. My objective is to take some air out of such philosophies and to remind us that all revelation is reserved solely for the President of the Church.
I hope to see some of you there!
