“View from the Tent”
is the story of one man broken by an event in his life that leads him down the trail to homelessness. Its an unusual tale because it’s told through an exchange of notes between me and Atreus, a pseudonym chosen by the homeless man. These exchanges bring the reader into the story line and the changes that take place in his life, and at the various camps, where he hunkered down. A Seattle actor, Dan Niven, has volunteered his time to do readings of the book at events where the book is the center of a fund raising event. The book is sold wholesale to the group, they mark it up, and sell it at the gathering. I was recently told that the book has generated about $60,000.00 in donations over the last year. Let Kids Be Kids and Dan Niven receive nothing from the sale of the book or the presentation done by Mr. Niven.
Book can be downloaded from iTunes or a traditional copy can be ordered from Lulu Publishing, Barnes & Noble, Amazon etc.
