RADIUM HALOS .99 cents for a limited time [OFFER ENDED]

Hi. My novel, RADIUM HALOS, is available for a limited time on Kindle for only $1.00.

RADIUM HALOS is historical fiction based on the true events of the Radium Girls: a group of female factory workers who, in the early 1920s, contracted radiation poisoning from painting luminous watch dials with radium paint. Our narrator is Helen Waterman, a 65-year-old mental patient who worked at the factory when she was 16. She tells us her story through flashbacks, slowly revealing her past, the loved ones she’s lost, and the dangerous secrets she’s kept all these years.

http://www.amazon.com/Radium-Halos-n...=AG56TWVU5XWC2

It is also available as a trade paperback.

Go to http://girlebooks.com/ebook-catalog/.../radium-halos/ to find the ebook in other formats.

Includes a foreword by Leonard Grossman, son of the attorney for the Radium Dial painters.

FOREWORD
Five years before I was born, my father, Leonard J. Grossman, represented women from Ottawa, Illinois in litigation against the Radium Dial Corporation seeking not merely damages but also recognition of what had been done to them. I grew up in the shadow of the Radium Dial case, a landmark in workers’ rights in this country. I was deeply proud of my father and infuriated, as he was, by the injustice inflicted on these women. I am sure this background is one reason I became a government lawyer enforcing workers’ rights. So when I came across Radium Halos by Shelley Stout I was very excited.

Sometimes fiction can speak truth in ways that the bare facts cannot. Ms. Stout has found a unique voice in which to tell the tragic story of the Radium Dial workers and at the same time to say much about life in this country. The story goes beyond the Radium Dial case and reflects much about our attitudes toward work, women, mental illness and aging. Along the way it speaks of fear and loyalty and truth itself.
Leonard Grossman
September 2009

Enjoy!

All best,
Shelley

Is this book available at Smashwords?

I don't have a Kindle and I don't want to pay the $2 surcharge because I don't live in America...

In Smashwords you can publish your book in a lot of formats suited to a lot of readers, and we only pay the price stated...

I just purchased it at girlebooks for 1 dollar and it is available in pdf, kindle/mobi, eReader PDB, ePub, and Lit.

I registered, purchased, and was sent an email with a code for the download. You click the link back to the site and paste in the code for the download.

**Thank you, Shelly, this looks to be an interesting story.**
