setback


As many of you my already know, I've been trying to grow my hair long enough to donate which has been challenging. It has gotten pretty long but, unfortunately, I noticed the ends were not looking as healthy as they should. So, snip! clip! Two hard-grown inches had to be chopped off.

The hairdresser insists that this will make the hair grow even faster and stronger, so I am trying to have faith. I'm finding the whole incident symbolic to what is happening with my new book as well.

Because I was told, due to the printing difficulties (this is the first novel that the publisher has ever printed in full color) that my book release is being pushed back. So instead of June 1st, the general release of Where the Mountain Meet the Moon will be July 1st. Perhaps this delay means the book sales will be faster and stronger too? Like I said, trying to have faith!

Regardless, they will still have books for my book launch. And that just means you REALLY have to come to it, because the book won't be available anywhere else until July!!

Sorry to hear about your book release date, Grace. But just as your hair will get to that requisite 10 inches, so too, will July 1st arrive. I can only imagine how hard it is to wait though. My sister just got her hair cut for Locks of Love, so you'll get there, too! Looking forward to attending your book launch! :)

One step back, huge leaps forward! Disappointing, but not a deal breaker! (Plus, it gives me a little more time to write the really FABULOUS review that end-of-school work has kept delaying!!!)

Thanks for your nice words! You're so encouraging! I will continue to think positive thoughts...hair WILL grow...book WILL launch...
