Twenty-Two Days Until My Release From Taft Federal Prison Camp

One year ago today I was playing golf with a few close friends, lamenting over the unfairness of my imminent self-surrender to prison.  Those were difficult hours, knowing that the following day I would be walking into the depths of a federal prison.  I wish that I had had more guidance about what to expect, and that was the reason I wrote Lessons From Prison.  I’m certain the book will be of assistance to others.

Now I have one full year of prison behind me in the bank, so to speak.  The time has passed and I will soon return home to the embrace of my loving family and friends.  I feel optimistic about the contributions I will be able to make to others, and continue to think of steps I can take to expand my reach.  I certainly should make efforts to introduce my work to journalists.  They may like stories to apprise citizens about the consequences that follow criminal convictions and I feel strongly that I can contribute as a source.  By sending letters like the one I’m drafting below, I hope to meet with a few journalists and contribute to their work.

“Dear (name of journalist):
