Calgary Sun: Bomb hoax costly, Mormon fined $2,000
This was another headline 30 years ago today, when my days ahead looked fatter but my wallet was definitely thinner.

But what was so costly for me, you can read about for a pittance. While supplies last, signed editions of my memoir, The Accidental Terrorist, are only $19.95 in hardcover, and $11.95 in trade paperback. And you can get the ebook edition for a ridiculously low 99 cents!

Not only that, but you can even enter at Goodreads to win one of ten free copies of the trade paperback. But hurry! Like my days in Canada, there isn't much time left for these offers.

Not only that, but you can even enter at Goodreads to win one of ten free copies of the trade paperback. But hurry! Like my time in Canada, the days of these sales are numbered.

Calgary Herald: Missionary guilty in bomb hoax
Thirty years ago today was the day I returned to court in Calgary, Alberta, to be sentenced after pleading guilty to public mischief.

You could tune in here tomorrow to see how things turned out for me, or you could just pick up a copy of the ebook edition of The Accidental Terrorist on sale for 99¢ and find out the old-fashioned way.

Of the memoir, Kristine Kathryn Rusch said, "The Accidental Terrorist reads like a novel instead of a memoir. Only in novel form, no one would have ever believed these events could have happened. Believe it. William Shunn lived every word of this book. That he can share it so eloquently is a tribute not just to his writing skill, but his strengths as a human being."

Get yourself a copy today.

Calgary Herald: Missionary faces trial over hoax at airport
It was 30 years ago today that my trial over charges stemming from a false bomb threat got underway in Provincial Court in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. A kid who didn't want to be a missionary in the first place was now facing up to ten years in prison for trying to prevent another kid from no longer being a missionary. It was an upside-down world, and I was hanging on for dear life.

How I got there and what came after is the story told in my memoir, The Accidental Terrorist: Confessions of a Reluctant Missionary. In observance of the 30th anniversary of the events it chronicles, my publisher, Sinister Regard, is offering U.S. customers free shipping and huge discounts on signed editions of the book:

Hardcover: regularly $27.95 now $19.95

Trade paperback: regularly $15.95 now $11.95

Calgary Herald: Bomb threat sends crews into action
There's no way to make this pretty. Thirty years ago today—Monday, February 23, 1987—I was arrested at Calgary International Airport, by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. (Disappointingly, no horses were involved.) I had not awakened that day planning to commit a crime. I ended the day in jail.

Perhaps tempting fate, I began my celebration today debarking from an international flight in Reykjavík, Iceland. (The flight had landed without incident.) I am now writing this post on a patio at the Blue Lagoon spa, having just spent an hour drifting around the hot-spring-fed pool with my wife, sometimes with silica mud or algae on our faces. It just started to snow.

You, on the other hand, can celebrate with me by picking up a copy of my memoir, The Accidental Terrorist, which explains what happened before, during, and after that fateful arrest. All ebook versions are on sale for only 99 cents! Prices are slashed on signed print editions too!

Share the gospel. Tell your friends. Happy anniversary, wherever you are.

Elder Shunn with books
Cast your mind back 30 years from today, to Sunday, February 22, 1987. This smiling 19-year-old Mormon missionary is not nearly as happy as he might look on the outside. But even so, he doesn't have the first clue how drastically his life is about to change.

But tomorrow, he'll find out. Stay tuned.
