Look What Just Arrived!

Today's mail arrived and with it I got the first glimpse of my book!! Exciting times, for sure!

I'm hoping this means, for those of you who pre-ordered it, that you will have your copy real soon as well. And come May 18 it can also be purchased at bookstores in your area. Right now I know for sure McNally Robinson in Winnipeg, Manitoba and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan will have it on their shelves. But, I'm sure there will be more. You could just ask at your favourite local book store and if they don't carry it yet, hopefully they'll order it.

I'll be hosting a Hutterite Diaries giveaway on my blog on May 18, the release date. So do stop by to enter your name in the draw.

So exciting!! I got a notice from Amazon that the release date would be earlier now and I just got a notice that it was shipped and due to arrive tomorrow (Wednesday, the 13th). That's here in the U.S. so not sure about Canada. I'll be out of town, but I'll be back Thursday so I'll let you know. Can't wait!

Good to hear, Beth! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts once you've read it. I appreciate how excited you are by this! People around here who've now read it, really enjoyed it, and are just as excited as you. All very gratifying.

Congratulations, Linda! I finished reading my Advance Reader's Copy and am looking forward to writing about your launch in my next column/blog. Can you tell me how many photos are included in the finished book?
