So, my wee book, Approaching God, has been released in the UK, Australia, South Africa and the United States. I know this for fact not fiction because I've started getting emails from friends all over the place saying that it has arrived at their door (if they ordered it through Amazon) or they've run into it in a shop.
My first sighting of it (after Jesse carried the one copy to me here in Arusha last July) was walking into Richard and Angie's house on the island of Guernsey and seeing it on their table. Then I saw it in Thames Ditton (London) at the home of Mike and Margit Newman. For my writer friends out there, I know I'm probably making a hoo hah out of nothing, but it really kind of jolts me to see my book lying around in someone else's possession.
But what's really crazy is to hear about other people's sightings of it. I received an email from a young friend named Carlee (from California) and she had just seen it in a bookstore in York, England. My friend, Janelle, picked it up in Melbourne!
Then there's the weird feeling of signing it for people when they ask. Honestly, I feel like a dork when I sign it. But I do it anyway because I think it's a nice thing.
Anyway... I promise not to keep going on about this. I think I just want to celebrate it a little.
So here's to the release of Approaching God!
I'm hoping many people will enjoy it.
