Like many of you, Sammy changed my life. Unlike many of you, I wrote a book about it, but I've also been pondering another project for years--I want to help you tell YOUR story.
I'm asking you to contribute your stories, memories, poems, photos or songs, of which you own all rights to, to a book/journal that I will edit and compile in the coming months. I can't afford to pay you for your submissions, but I will give you credit for your work. The book will be a bound, published book, hopefully one day in ebook format and if it turns out good, I will send a copy to Sammy.
This is not a “poor me” post. It’s above love. And friends. And REDheads! And what you and Sammy Hagar mean to me.
Ever since my unexpected out-of-body experience during one of Sammy’s shows in Cabo in 2003, which I wrote about in my book, "Dance of the Electric Hummingbird," my husband have been attending Sammy’s birthday bash concerts in Cabo. And ever since Cabo Wabo opened in 2004 in South Lake Tahoe, we’ve been there to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Sammy and all of you, except for this year.
Because of Sammy and his wonderful son Aaron, my book DANCE OF THE ELECTRIC HUMMINGBIRD is now an award-winning memoir!
Recently, DANCE OF THE ELECTRIC HUMMINGBIRD was nominated in multiple categories for a 2013 CIPA EVVY Award. Merely to be nominated is a tremendous honor, but during the awards ceremony on May 18, 2013, CIPA judges chose DANCE OF THE ELECTRIC HUMMINGBIRD from among thousands of entries to win the "Merit Book" award in the category of Autobiography/Memoirs.
Some people say that Sammy Hagar doesn't care about his fans--that he's only in it for the money. Well, I'm here to tell you that that is definitely NOT the case.
TODAY, Friday, Sept. 14 at midnight, is your LAST chance to enter your name into the drawing for TWO FREE copies of "Dance of the Electric Hummingbird" to be given away in memory of fellow REDhead Sherry Altice Chenoweth. (This book is fully endorsed by Sammy, with cover artwork by Aaron Hagar. It is also offered for sale in the gift shop [Thank you, Sammy!] at the Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.) Drawing is tomorrow. What are you waiting for? It's FREE! Get your entries in today!
In honor of a dear friend and fellow REDhead, Sherry Altice Chenoweth, who passed away unexpectedly yesterday, I am giving away TWO FREE copies of my book DANCE OF THE ELECTRIC HUMMINGBIRD. This book is fully endorsed by Sammy, with cover artwork by his son, Aaron.
Please visit my website for details on the drawing. Thank you. http://www.bajarockpat.net/2012/09/05/free-book-giveaway-2/

In Tahoe, Sammy Hagar personally bought several copies of my book "Dance of the Electric Hummingbird". He had me sign them, then he was going to sign them and place them for sale in the Cabo Wabo gift shop in Harrah's in South Lake Tahoe. There were only 6 books but they will be collector's items--having *both* our signatures on them! My book is about how Sammy personally changed my life and is fully endorsed by him.
