This week I worked with Tyndale House Publishing to finish the picture inserts for Blind Descent.  There are some interesting pictures from my Everest climb and one pretty disturbing one of my eyes severely snowblind.  It makes my eyes water to see them and remember the pain of trying to sleep that night of 5/15/2011 in the death zone after my blind descent.  Also later this week I was so grateful to have Erik Weihenmayer, Don Mann and Jim Davidson read pre-released copies of Blind Descent and provide endorsements.  I also got some responses from some other high profile individuals that are currently reading the book.  It’s humbling to be able to impact others that I look up to.

I also spoke with Marketing and Working Title Agency about the book release.  They have me booked for Anderson Cooper (CNN) in May plus I’ll be hitting other major circuits on a New York tour.  The book will be released the first week of May.
