2. How to Be a Hero: Train With the Saints released on Wednesday, but Amazon sold out their stock during the preorder! Right now, they are saying 1-2 months for fulfillment, but it should really only be about 2 weeks. My publisher shipped more copies to them today.
Should you want yours sooner, you can order straight from Pauline here.
3. There was a small debacle with the author copies and they didn’t get delivered until Tuesday. Of course, Monday night, we got a snowstorm. I was beside myself that they wouldn’t be delivered and kept frantically refreshing the UPS tracking info all day. When I saw the truck pull up outside the window, I went charging out there with no coat on. I think the guy thought I was crazy.
4. I’m currently setting up speaking events to promote How to Be a Hero. You can contact me through my website (or Facebook, or Instagram) if you’re interested. I am available to speak to kids, parents, or teachers & catechists. Please feel free to reach out if you’d like to chat details & topics.
5. When I showed Will the book and the dedication page, we asked him, “Who wrote this book?” With total confidence and disinterest, he said, “The Amazon guy.” (True confessions: I sometimes worry that Will thinks Amazon is God between Amazon TV and the near daily arrivals on the doorstep.)
6. He was much more interested in snowman building and snow angel making, and even more interested in “hot cocoa” upon retiring from snow games. Bridget takes after her mama and is not interested in snow at all. She does, however, enjoy trying on her brother’s snow apparel.
7. We are having a little St. Patrick’s Day party today with the kids’ cousins and I may have gone slightly overboard with shamrock activities, mostly centering around food. Obviously. You know you can’t wait to see the Jello jigglers and the sugar cookies, and of course the shamrock raviolis I impulse bought from Costco yesterday. It’s a magical childhood up in here, y’all.
Go see Kelly and everyone!
