I heard footsteps on the cabin deck yesterday and looked up to see the UPS deliveryman holding out a package. Inside were two copies of Pure Act: my first look at the actual book. It’s beautiful–and that’s not just this author’s humble opinion. When my editor saw it, he called it “stunning–breathtaking, really.” I hope others like it as much as those of us who have worked on it. If you’ve pre-ordered it, your copies should be arriving soon.
My first reading is up here at the library on Lopez Island at 1 p.m., next Saturday, August 29. Another good reason to visit the San Juans! Next up will be a reading at the Edmonds Bookshop in Edmonds, WA, at 6:30 on Friday, September 4, and then our Seattle launch at the University Bookstore on the Ave at 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 5. Please see my “Talks” page for other upcoming readings. I hope to see you at one of them!
