Well, that may not be true. Many bookstores have the 8th--so, a week from today--as their official Skipping Stones at the Center of the Earth release date. But still, it's exciting: Today is the publisher's release date.
The manuscript I often thought was too amibitous for my own good, the one that took me 4 1/2 years to write one complete draft of--it's now available as a beautiful book to all of its intended readers.
Hope you enjoy it.
And don't forget to see me and the book this weekend. You could see me in Stillwater at the Valley Bookseller on Saturday the 6th (2:00) or celebrate with me at the release party on Sunday the 7th (also 2:00) at Glacier's Cafe in Minneapolis. On the evening of Tuesday the 9th, I'll be at the Riverview Cafe in my very own Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis.
See you soon.
