Show-and-tell

About 10 o’clock this morning the doorbell rang. I opened the door to a man in brown, holding a clipboard. At his feet was a big box which, after he left, I promptly opened to find it was full of this.

Yes indeed, it’s finally here, my hot-off-the-press book of poems, Family Reunion! It is one of the perks of being named Utmost Christian Writers Poet Laureate. Many, many thanks to my editor Nathan Harms for his help in putting this together. What a fabulous prize and honor!

(Yikes, a hundred books looks like a lot. But then, I guess I have the rest of my life to dispose of them.)

Thank you, Julana and Donna!

You like the cover, Donna? I'm glad. I do too, actually. It's a picture I took of my kids when they were little - at Fantasy Garden.

I want one, but you can sign it for me in person at the InScribe conference in Edmonton in September ...

AP - of course! I would be honored to do that.
