Party’s On!

While my book, Calling the Shots in Your Medical Care, officially launched July 5, I figured, what is a book launch without a party? I will be hosting a book launch party on Saturday, July 23, which will include a reading, discussion, and a book signing. Refreshments will be provided.

If you are in the neighborhood, you are welcome to stop by. The party will take place at Bespeak Studios, located at 737 W. Wrightwood Avenue, Chicago IL 60614, from 3-6 p.m.

I have my special pen ready and willing to sign autographs.

As the book launch party nears, I find myself filled with so many emotions — joy, anxiety, and determination, just to name a few.

I want this to be a great event for my guests.

I want to sell books, of course. What author doesn’t? But, in the end, I know success is not measured by the number of books I sell or the number of books I sign.

Success is measured by how we help our fellow human beings.

And I am hoping that my new book will do just that.


Even if you are too far from Chicago or are in the Chicago area but unable to attend the party, I still like to think of you, dear readers, as important guests of the party. I will think of all the wonderful people whose paths crossed mine, as I embark on this new endeavor.

    Congratulations Beth! I got the Kindle edition and will consider it signed in cyberspace. We are moving soon and I’ll be able choose doctors again. For now, the only way to get service is to go directly to the ambulance bay at the hospital and request a ride to the city hospital.

    Will let you know how your ideas work in the socialized system here in Alberta. The other day I fired a skin specialist for calling me in (6 hour round trip drive) to finish off an incision started by my family doctor. He did a two minute exam and said that was it and I’d have to book another appointment for the “surgery.” He also refused to give me a full exam of the OTHER skin cancer spots on me. My last dermatologist did everything in one shot.

    For now, I’m off doctors and may fire the whole system. My first tip is to NEVER visit a doctor who has moved into a new office or building. You will be chopped up into micro-appointments to create multiple, full charge visits. These doctors usually become habituated to the unnecessary visit cash cow and will make things up to keep you coming back.

      Yes, I’d be curious how my ideas would fare in a socialized medical system, too. Yes, consider the Kindle signed in cyberspace. If you would be so kind as to give the book a review on Amazon — good, bad, or indifferent — I’d greatly appreciate it.

      Sounds like you have had horrific experiences. I’m so sorry you have encountered such medical duds.

    Wish I had been in the neighborhood Beth 😉 How did the launch go?

    • Beth L. Gainer had this to say about that:

      Hi Marie,

      The launch went very well; thanks for asking! It was a nice celebration, and I’ll be posting pictures some time. I wish you were in the neighborhood too. I’m so glad we got to communicate “face-to-face” last week.
