Three years ago next month, I decided to write A Year's Journey/Simple Things--an in depth look at living life more fully with gratitude and joy. I spent nearly 15 months writing the book; various changes and edits (with two very patient and encouraging editors--thanks Kirk and Stacey) spanned the next nineteen months. Some days (lots, actually) I didn't think I'd ever see the book reach print.
I arrived home yesterday to find my box of author's copies. It's official: Simple Things is now "real" and starting to arrive in bookstores. My most sincere thanks to all of you who encouraged me these past three years: my editors, beta readers, friends, and family. Heartfelt gratitude and thanks for making a dream come true.
