Oceano, California (I-Newswire) March 6, 2013 - In celebration of Read An E-Book Week, Rightword Publishing is offering its newest e-book, Soldier-On: The Mercurey Goodman Experience, by Iraq War veteran Mercurey Goodman, absolutely FREE through Amazon.com until midnight March 7.
The e-book can be downloaded and read on all e-book readers as well as most computers, smart phones and electronic tablets. After March 7 it will be available for $2.99.
Soldier-On: The Mercurey Goodman Experience, is a coming-of-age memoir drawn from 10 years of duty in the United States Army in times of peace and war. Mercurey Goodman, the book’s author, enlisted in 1996 and rose to the rank of sergeant in a career that began before the 9/11 terrorist attacks, spanned four continents and included combat duty in Iraq at the time of dictator Saddam Hussein’s capture and execution.
His memoir shows Goodman struggling to fit in with Army life, suffering more than his share of “ass chewings” from his superiors for various transgressions including losing his rifle, marching out of step, nearly shooting a child on the streets of Iraq, going AWOL after crashing his car into an elk, surviving a tornado and facing court martial. With suicidal thoughts and post traumatic stress disorder, Goodman’s domestic situation is equally challenging as he deals with a cheating spouse, divorce, money woes, a mysterious illness, violent altercations, and unscrupulous business people.
“Soldier-On: The Mercurey Goodman Experience is poignant, humorous and as embarrassingly true-life as it gets,” said David Ciaffardini, who, with Matthew Gray, co-founded Rightword Publishing in Oceano, California. “Soldier-On sympathizes with your average military recruit in a way we haven’t seen much since MASH, Catch-22 and Gomer Pyle,” Ciaffardini said. “It’s a quirky, fast-paced story perfect for the e-book age. You can read it on the weekend but you’ll remember the character of Mercurey Goodman for years.”
Goodman says he didn’t have any grand literary ambitions for Soldier-On, nor any extreme political or philosophical messages.
“I was just looking to write an action and adventure story that keeps you wanting to hear more and find out what’s going to happen next,” Goodman explained from his apartment in Arroyo Grande, California, where he’s working on his second book. “It’s about acceptance of who you are and how you just do what you have to do, accepting things for what they are.”
