A couple of years ago I made an inspiration board. I mined a pile of old magazines for photos and quotes that related to experiences I intend for my life—a “visual bucket list” of sorts. It hangs on the wall in my bedroom, and the first thing I see every morning are the inspiring words,
“Writer awakening, today is your lucky day!”
Call me superstitious, but when it came time to pick a date to launch my debut novel, The Recollection of Trees, lucky Friday the 13th seemed perfect. Then I realized there are TWO in a row, one in February and one in March. EUREKA!
The Recollection of Trees will be available for sale on Friday March 13th, 2015.
Pre-order details will be available March 1, 2015, so be sure to sign up for email alerts. (I never share my list with anyone.)
I have to say, it’s pretty amazing to write something on a bucket list or glue something on an inspiration board, and it is another thing entirely to see that something come to fruition! It’s similar to being pregnant and having the doctor or midwife confirm that YES, you’re in labor. YIKES—but in a good way. I’m going to need my knee-high lucky Halloween socks for this!
A BIG thank you to all of my kickstarter backers!!! I couldn’t have indie published without you!
Thank you everyone for all your friendship, support, well wishes, blessings, and bids of good luck!
