My author copies of the paperback arrived the other day. This is still a thrill, holding my book in my hand. The first time I had a book published was May 1993. I was in the hospital giving birth to Weston the day my author copies arrived. When my husband came to pick me up at the hospital, he brought the box of copies of my first book with him, in the car, so I could see it as soon as possible. My latest book came out in hardcover last year at this time, so it’s not the first time I’ve held this book in my hand, but it’s the first time with the paperback version. My publisher produced the book in paperback just as beautifully as in the hardcover. The paperback is less expensive than the hardcover, though, so if you haven’t gotten your hands on my book, this is your chance to get it in paperback. It will be on store shelves October 7, but it’s available for pre-order online now. And let me know what you think! The cover is different from the hardcover. You like?
Sometimes there are just no words for fall.

I let Maia out of the field to visit for a few hours toward the end of the last day of this past weekend’s retreat. She was wearing her tutu.
Then she wasn’t. And I’ve been looking for her tutu ever since.
The “person of interest” in the tutu’s disappearance is not cooperating with authorities.
