Was That Thunder? self-publish book

In April 2018, I published my first book, titled “Was That Thunder? More Than a Boston Marathon Bombing Story.” The book was released April 15, in conjunction with the fifth anniversary of the Boston Marathon explosions. Visit www.gregkalkwarf.com for more information.

To help defray the costs involved with self-publishing, I am accepting contributions of any dollar amount. Anyone who contributes at least $25 to the campaign receives a signed copy of the book. While the print and electronic versions are available, I would like to record an audio version.

My financial goal is $8,422, which represents the approximate cost to publish the book – editing, cover design, printing, etc. Contributions are not tax-deductible, but I plan to contribute a portion of the proceeds to the Alzheimer’s Association, the disease that took my mom and grandpa.

Here is a summary of the book:

"Running up and down Pikes Peak, a 14,000-foot tall mountain in Colorado, was great preparation for the life changing moments Greg Kalkwarf experienced in a 13-month period in 2012 and 2013: a raging wildfire, the tragic death of a family member, the happy birth of a baby girl, a crosswalk collision with a taxi cab, and a terrorist bombing at the finish line of Boston Marathon. His journey encompasses a spectrum of emotions, captured in a 26.2 chapter book reflecting the miles of a marathon experience."

Thank you for your consideration and support!
