A Phoenix in the Hand

Thanksgiving isn’t known for gift giving, but I got a wonderful gift from my publisher today: my first copy of Phoenix.

I’ve stared at the cover enough to know it as well as the back of my hand, so finally seeing it in my fingers was a thrill. But, what took my breath away was when I cracked open the spine, when I saw words that I labored over so long ago printed, ready for the world. I admit, I teared up (and ordered a mimosa).

I’m sure this must be what it’s like when you have a new baby: you can’t stop staring, you wonder what the future holds for it, hope that you prepare it for the world. My publisher teased that she expects to see me next wearing Phoenix in a Baby Bjorn. Oh she kids, but just wait.

You too can have a copy of Phoenix in hand. It’s available in paperback from Amazon (Kindle coming as soon), and in both paperback and e-book from Barnes and Noble. Apple’s iBooks will have it soon as well. And, check out my new Goodreads Author Page.

Thank you all for joining me on this incredible and humbling journey.
