My very personal story, KILLING CANCER has been updated with a new introduction by Dr. Mark Scholz who I believe is America's best when it comes to prostate cancer, new cover, cover copy by an enthusiastic fan, and some new content. For a very short time you can grab a copy for $.99, as, like me, the publisher wants it available to everyone. Here's the cover copy and a link:

Western and thriller author L.J. Martin never expected to be the victim. But a chilling prostate cancer diagnosis felt like an epic showdown lifted straight from one of his novels. He approached treatment like a well-plotted conclusion, until another terrifying discovery threatened to cut his ending short…

Facing a horrific battle against throat and neck cancer, Martin consulted experts, sought opinions, and researched new-age alternatives. With countless possible interventions available, Martin realized that the only person who could drive the disease from his body… was him.

Killing Cancer is L.J. Martin's frank, real-life account of his fight from the razor's edge to perfect health. Told in a compelling suspense-style narrative, the author lays bare everything you should know about a disease destined to impact every American. Martin's brutally raw and inspirational story won't just save you time; it could save your life.

Killing Cancer is a highly-detailed account of a modern-day approach to treating one of the world's scariest diseases. 

If you like candid conversations, no-fluff info, and positive paths to wellness, then you'll love L.J. Martin's powerful, uplifting memoir.
