Books, Belated and Forthcoming

So I know that some contributors and book giveaway winners are still waiting for their copy of _Making Home_ and I offer you profuse apologies.  When I was out of town and a friend really wanted to sell copies at an event, Eric gave her some books.  Actually, all the books.  He didn't realize there weren't more.  In the meantime, she didn't sell all of them but for reasons involving complicated personal things hasn't been able to get them back to me.  They will re-arrive this weekend, and go out in the mail early next week.  Again, apologies for keeping you waiting.  

As a form of contrition, I offer another book giveway.  A kind reader has donated three volumes of the Hesperian Foundation's wonderful books on medical care in crisis, isolated or other situations where there is no formal care available, and I am giving all three away in a drawing.  I will give away one copy each of _Where There Is No Doctor_ , _Where There is No Dentist_ and _Where Women Have No Doctor_ to three lucky winners.  Post your name below and list them in order of preference (you don't need to list all three if you have one or don't want one or two), and my children will draw names out of a hat.

Also, just to confirm what is being passed around as rumor, yes, I am writing a fifth book right now - it will come out about a year from now, and is called _Green Sex: .....And Love, Friendship, Marriage, Family, Gender and Reproduction in an Ecologically Constrained World_.  I admit, I'm having a great time writing it (and I had the best time filling out the marketing questions..."Who do you think this book will appeal to...Ummm...folks who like sex?)  So there is more coming, if you can take it - including a bunch of books by mail.

Any one would be great! Preference: doctor, dentist , women

Women, doctor, dentist (My dremel tool says it is not to be used for dentistry or podiatry. I use it to pare down my toenails, but haven't tried anything in my mouth yet.)

I'm guessing previous winners are disallowed, but in case not: Doctor/Dentist/Women. =)

(I figured there had been some sort of mix-up; don't we all have those at home?)

Women/Dentist. I already have Doctor. Thanks for doing these giveaways, Sharon!

Oooh, yes! Please enter me in the drawing for Where There Is No Doctor. Thanks.
