Friends, today’s the day Letters to Zell goes on sale worldwide. You can have it in ebook or paperback, audio CD or mp3. You can read it in a boat. You can read it with a goat. Scratch that. Goats are bad news. (Speaking from experience, here.)
I started this post about five minutes to midnight. Adam and Dutchess have been asleep for hours now, but I know sleeping will be hard to do for me for least a bit longer. When you’ve wanted something your whole life — or at least most of the part you’ve wanted things better than red bicycles and Snickers — sometimes it’s hard to know what to do with it once you’re holding it in your hands.
And it’s here that I come to gratitude. The acknowledgements section of a book is so woefully inadequate at expressing thanks to the people who’ve made this possible. Writing is not completed in a vacuum. Nor is life. I am boundlessly fortunate to have met some of the world’s best humans in this endeavor. I continue to do so.
Today, the wonderful Su Ring, a novelist in her own right, invited me over to King5’s talk show New Day Northwest to talk about the book and the reading at University Bookstore. (That’s 7pm at the University District location.) Today was yet another day spent meeting new friends, talking to amazing people, and experiencing new things.
Maybe you’ve already started reading on your kindle. Maybe you don’t read books about fairy tales, or books in letters or even books at all. Still, I thank you for being a part of this journey. It means the world to me. Cheers. xo
PS. I mean it about the goat.
