    I have been working on this for a couple years now. Not writing on it specifically the whole time. You know how these things go. But now, I'm basically done, except for a wrap up. My writer-daughter is telling me I should find someone "in the field" and somewhat known to others looking into the subject to write a forward for it (after reading it of course), but I am feeling kind of hesitant about this. I hate to feel like I am pressuring someone. Any suggestions or volunteers? It is not overly long. I don't have it in book format yet, so don't know how the page count will end up. Also, I'd be pleased to give a free pdf of it to a couple of people who would write a review on amazon for me. If you are totally against minimalist shoes, you won't like it, because I talk about how and when they can be useful. :bookworm:

    Hey there!! I just noticed this thread. Congrats on the book! I nominate me, to do your illustrations. I'm a cartoonist. :) I won't put my website link here, would probably violate some kind of TOS rule. Send me a private email, and we can talk further. :)

    Yours,

    Clint

    I'd be curious to see what your website looks like, actually. :cool:

    If having an "international barefoot runner" would be helpful for an Amazon review, I'd love to read it & do an Amazon review ... like bare footing, reading is another passion - Mateo in the Canary Islands.

    If by " international" you mean Canada, I'd love to read it too! No objections to "minimalist" shoes since I wear them here in the winter when it's arse snappin cold!!
