Dear Chipsters,

We want you to be the first to read “Circle Way,” Mary Ann’s beautiful, visually rich memoir about identity, family and the creative calling. It doesn’t go on sale until Feb. 15, but if you pre-order now, we will send you an advance digital copy as our thanks. This holiday offer is exclusively for Chips Quinn scholars, and author proceeds will go to The Hogan-Newton Fund at the Miami Foundation, which helps young journalists realize their true potential. 

To get your free digital copy, please follow the instructions below. 

First, pre-order a hard copy from any of these retailers: 

Then, forward your receipt to Patty Kabick at [email protected] and let her know whether you prefer a PDF file or e-pub file. 

If you’d like to support this project in other ways, we’d very much appreciate the following: 

  • Write a good review on Amazon and Goodreads the day the book goes on sale, Feb. 15. 
  • Post about the book on social media using the #CircleWay hashtag – and be sure to tag Eric Newton and @wonderwellpress, so we can find and share your post! We’d love to see photos of you holding the book, but if you don’t have a copy yet or don’t have time, you can use any of the images in this Dropbox folder. 
  • To buy copies in bulk for friends, colleagues, students, our contacts at Porchlight can offer a discount on bulk purchases. 

Thanks so much,

Eric Newton
