That’s right. Fifty seven days from now, my baby will be on the book shelves. And I will say, “Mister, please climb down from there, it’s not safe.” And I’ll pick him up and bring him into the kitchen to try interesting him in banging pots on the floor. Meanwhile, my other baby will be taking her socks off. And all the while, The Path of Names will be on sale in bookstores and websites everywhere.
As you can see, I’m a little giddy at the thought. Given my lifelong love of bookstores and libraries, the idea that my book will be on the shelves with … like real books, seems wholly delightful to me.
This might be a good time to mention how to buy The Path of Names. It already has an ISBN: 978-0545474306. With these 13 digits you can preorder from whatever online or real life book store you like.
At some point soon I will put up information about my micro book tour of the East Coast. I have a professional development conference for my day job in Washington D.C. at the end of May, and a book launch in NYC in early June. In between, I’ll be doing some readings and classroom visits. More details to follow!
