One year ago today my first book Junkyard Wisdom was released! It’s hard to believe a year has gone by already. As a first time author, each experience has been so memorable. The first book signing, the launch parties, the speaking opportunities, and the generous comments from readers have all been deeply meaningful.
Thank you for making it happen. The support of friends and family was at the core of any success Junkyard Wisdom has experienced. Just think about it: the writing began without a publisher, the publishing began without a marketing plan, and the marketing began without, well, without any clue on my part! Yet each stage of the process was supported and made possible by so many of you.
Again, thank you!
Three quick updates.
First, we are going to have another Junkyard Wisdom Belize experience next February. We are currently taking deposits if you are interested. You can learn more at www.junkyardwisdombelize.com.
Second, this morning it was fun to be at my college buddy Ron’s church in Fremont, California. During the service he interviewed me about wealth and poverty, and I signed books afterward. Great people, great church. Thank you to all the folks at Bridges Community Church.
Third, my next book is progressing nicely. It is a fun book to write because each chapter is short, self-contained, and often very funny. Well, at least I think it’s funny! Hopefully you will too. The goal is to have the manuscript done in two months, though of course it will take longer before it is released.
Once again, thank you. It is a joy to remember all the great people who helped with the book, all the new friends I have made, and all the people who have said the Junkyard Wisdom impacted their heart. Very, very cool!
