FRIENDS.

This week, I finally received my official copies ofThe Lightmaker’s Manifesto.

It is a surreal thing to open a box and see the final product of something you’ve worked on for over a year. DURING A PANDEMIC. But it’s here, and I’m overwhelmed. I don’t even know how to feel.

(Except to say friends, the cover actually ✨sparkles✨. Oh, those clever, clever folks over atBroadleaf Books!)

另外,还有一件很酷的事:一些预订了这本书的人收到通知,他们的书将在11月2日正式出版日期之前到达——这有多神奇?

And here’s something they don’t tell you: preorders meaneverythingto a publisher — it’s a sign that their investment in me was worth it.So, I need your help: if you haven’t preordered yet, please do so!You can preorder at the links on this page,或者甚至是在你当地非常酷的独立书店,那里有很棒的舒适的沙发——任何卖书的地方。我会非常感激的。(还有,假期就要到了,所以当你意识到忘记给别人买礼物,而你突然需要在手边买一件礼物的时候,也许可以买两件?只是一个想法!)

In any and all events,thank you. I mean it: you who have followed my time here at Chookooloonks since the very beginning (over 17 years and counting!), and who have left comments, sent me encouraging emails, and just generally cheered me on, I ambeyondgrateful. This book absolutely could not have come into being without your kindness. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

More about virtual launch events very, very soon.

(P.S. Did I mention the book ✨sparkles✨??)
