“Second Chance: The Mark Sanford Story” will be on sale soon on Amazon, iTunes and other e-reader formats. Check Evening Post Books for availability and how to buy the book.

“Second Chance” is part of a new publishing trend to produce “e-shorts” — stories that are too long to run in a newspaper and too short to be books. E-shorts are designed to be read in one long sitting and give readers a fuller picture of an issue or, in this case, a public figure’s riveting internal struggle.
