Book Announcement: The Time to Buy is Now

And now, with a completely selfish attitude, I'm going to tell you all that my book, Ayahuasca in My Blood: 25 Years of Medicine Dreaming, is being finished up and edited at the moment. I'm publishing it myself via Lulu because no big publishers have come to me and I just don't have the time to go to them.
I think the book is a great read. And if you've followed me for 25 years, you've already read a great deal--though by no means all--of the material, from the first time I went into the Peruvian Amazon and drank Ayahuasca through my marriage, its breakup, my healing, and finally my beginning to learn to heal others. It's running between 260-280 pages and will be a good sized paperback. It's been designed by Johan Fremin, a former guest of mine in the jungle who's become, like some of you, a good friend. He's done a fantastic job with it.
So here's the pitch: Go to pgorman.com, find the paypal button and send me $25 (that includes shipping), and when I have the copies in hand at the end of February--a perfect time for a great read--I'll get it out to you. Don't forget to write me at peterg9@yahoo with your address so that there are no mistakes. The site is being updated with a button just for the book, but that's not done quite yet, so just go to paypal and send the darned money. That way I'll have the money to print the darned thing. Get it? That's what this pre-publication sale is about! And I'll sign it if you like however you would like it signed. Hell, I'll even blow mapacho smoke on it for you.
So get to it and get me that money and I promise I'll get you a great read about that fantastic medicine, the jungle, and my 25 years of medicine dreaming.
If you prefer to send a check or money order, send it to

Congratulations, Peter! Can't wait to read it. Another thing - don't forget to post the info onto Facebook, your profile as well as on the discussion board of the various aya groups on Facebook.
Hugs to you and yours!

Hmmm, looks like I'll have to mail you a check. Couldn't find your paypal button for the book...

Just login to your PayPal account and "Send Money" to peterg9@yahoo.com

That's the fastest way, I believe.

Congratulations on your new book! You know that I have been a fan of your writing for many years, and I am delighted to have both your best and your most recent writing collected in one place. I am really looking forward to reading it. I have sent you $25 through PayPal. If we meet in Iquitos I will also buy you a beer. :-)

Warmest regards.
