Are you a REVIEWER TYPE PERSON?  Are you interested in MAKER stuff and DIY?  I'm in the midst of writing my second DIY book, this time focused entirely on musical instruments and noise toys (many electronic or electro-acoustic, both traditional and odd-as-hell).  If you are possibly interested in a review copy, hit me with contact info and a link to your venue (or Amazon, or whateves):  http://davideriknelson.com/contact.html

(feel free to pass this on to others you know who do book reviews, etc., and are down with MAKER/DIY craziness)

I have no real idea what "endorse" means in this context, but please consider "endorsing" this thing, as it is my sister's thing and the is an OK Human:

Writer of Things!
Introduction
There are a lot of "Dave Nelson"s out there.  I'm the "David Erik Nelson" one.  If you are looking for a "Dave Nelson" who wrote a story where robots had sex, or where a talking Squid did something morally reprehensible, or where a guy in a bar explains about this haunted dog he got from the Human Society, I am that guy.  If you were at a talk where a "Dave Nelson" gave you tips on writing or teaching or throwing boomerangs, I'm also him.  If you read a book or article by a "Dave Nelson," and it resulted in a mild but painful electric shock or left you feeling slightly more well-informed viz. the small business ecosystem of Ann Arbor, MI, then I am probably the "Dave Nelson" you are looking for.

But if you are looking for an actor or a senator or a real estate developer or an engineer, I'm not them. If you are looking for a Rabbi "Dave Nelson"--and Michigan has a whole mess of 'em--I'm not any of them, unless you are looking for the one that performed a multi-denominational Hindu-inflected wedding in South Carolina on his 34th birthday, because I am that "Dave Nelson."  I am totally that guy.
