John Montandon's award winning book, By His Own Blood, is now free to magazines as a short story.

AUSTIN, TX / November 1, 2017 - John Montandon has taken another giant step forward in spreading the word about his recently published book, By His Own Blood. The author of this 2012 International Book Awards winner for best Non Fiction Narrative is making available to a selected list of magazines the By His Own Blood book as a short story or article at no charge. Sales of the author's book are continuing to increase and it has received excellent reviews from critics, authors, editors, readers, academics, and reviewers alike. The purpose of offering excerpts of the book in a condensed version is to the spread the word so that more readers will be exposed to this emotionally charged memoir based on a true story.

By His Own Blood begins as a story of growing up in the sparsely settled Rolling Plains of West Texas in the 50s and 60s on a small cotton farm. And it peaks with Montandon's father's horrific death and the author's search for answers and healing. In the book, the writer's father, Doc Montandon, was given a blood transfusion tainted with the HIV virus during unnecessary surgery and was refused treatment after having developed AIDS. To make matters worse, the ordeal was covered up and medical assistance to care for his father was almost impossible to obtain as it was at a time of the beginning of the AIDS epidemic. Doc, a retired Texas cotton farmer, suffered terribly and died not knowing why or how he was infected.
