November 2013 FREE BOOK!

This month’s FREE BOOK is a thrill-a-minute ride from the first page. Written by Richard L. Mabry, M.D., HEART FAILURE will take you into the life of Dr. Carrie Markham, respected internal medicine specialist, just as she discovers that her fiance is not at all who he claims to be.

From the back cover, “Now, just as her medical practice is taking off, her fresh engagement to paralegal Adam Davidson seems almost too good to be true…until a drive-by shooting leaves Carrie on the floor of his car with glass falling around her.”

Our give-away copy is a new trade paperback, and your name will be in the Wednesday, November 20 drawing if you leave a comment to this question:

If you were a doctor, what would be your specialty?

    My specialty would be in gastric bypass surgery…reason number one I wanted it for myself since age 28 and to this day being treated as if my obesity was a communicable desease still hurts .Happens every time you see a Dr.:)

  2. Sue, I faced this choice, of course, while I was in medical school. That’s when a talk at a Christian Medical Society meeting by Dr. Jack Hough, a pioneer in ear surgery, pointed me toward ear, nose, & throat. Although I later moved away from ear surgery into nasal/sinus/allergy subspecialization, I never regretted my choice.

    Thanks for featuring Heart Failure this month. I hope your readers enjoy it.

    I would have gone into research, help to find treatments, and a cure for cancer, and other catastrophic diseases…

  4. Anonymous says:

    I would be an orthopedic specialist.

    I’m sure they will enjoy the book, Doc. It’s a winner. Thank you for your information about how you made the choices about your medical career. You’ve led and are leading such an incredible life. Sometimes I’ve been the “mouse in the corner” when you make comments in various Internet social contexts, and I also was able to meet you at the 2011 ACFW Conference, which was an difficult time for me. Your friendliness and great smile and your comments on the Internet have encouraged me more times than you know! Congrats on your fine books.

  6. I think I would be a podiatrist. My wife loves to have her feet rubbed, so I might learn to do that better. 🙂

  7. Linda Six says:

    If I were a doctor I would love to work with children.

  8. amyc says:

    I think I would be more into psychiatry.

  9. Jackie Smith says:

    If I were a doctor, I would be something in line of a pain relief……maybe cause I have had perfect health until now and can’t seem to get proper help for facet joint syndrome!
    I love Richard’s books…have read them all but this one…thanks for the giveaway.

  10. If I were a doctor, I think I’d lean toward family practice. The doctor I had for the first 25 years of my life delivered my mother and me. Our whole family went to him until he retired in his 90’s. I know this is rare today, but that’s my ideal.

    I’d love to win Dr. Mabry’s book. Code Blue was great! susanjreinhardt AT gmail DOT com

  11. Roanna says:

    If I were going to be a doctor, I would do obstetrics.

    Thank you for hosting a giveaway!

  12. Ada Brownell says:

    I would be a neurosurgeon. The brain and the nervous system are so interesting. One neurosurgeon that I quote in my book, Swallowed by Life, believes the location of the soul is in the brain. Dr. Andrew Newberg, neuroscientist and author of “Why We Believe What We Believe,” says our brains seem to have a special place for faith. He has tracked how the human brain processes religion and spirituality. It’s all part of a new field called neurotheology. Interesting stuff! I wrote about that in the chapter I have in Shelley Hitz’s book, 21 Stories of Faith.

  13. Since blood usually makes me faint, probably psychiatry. 🙂

  14. Umm… I’d choose to be a vet. Does an animal doctor count, or am I stretching it too far?

  15. Heidi Newell says:

    I think I would concentrate on mental health. If we found a way to conquer that, many of society’s problems would disappear.

  16. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all Richard’s books to date. In answer to your question, I’d likely choose to be an Oncologist. Since doing a round with cancer I’ve come to appreciate the importance of combining medical expertise and compassionate care when a patient is both ill and terrified!

  17. I worked in West Michigan’s largest health care system for approximately 1o years. Through my experience in the medical community, if I had become a doctor I would have specialized in geriatrics. The elderly have needs that mirror those of a child, and having been responsible for my grandmother in her last years I think I could have bridged some gaps in their lives. Thank you for offering this giveaway, and for giving me cause to ponder a new path in the medical field.

  18. Katrina says:

    As a nurse, I’ve only worked in the ICU and the emergency room. I think I would prefer to be an ER physician. This book sounds wonderful and I am looking forward to reading it. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  19. suehar says:

    Sure, Janet! Animal doctors count. I don’t know what we would do without our local vet. He and his assistant (who is his wife) have saved the lives of many of our dogs and add such a kind, wise, and fun vitality to our community.

  20. Thanks to each of you who has commented. I appreciate your interest. And thanks, Sue, for making this book available. Blessings, all.
