I write books that run to a hundred thousand words or more. I write letters to my friends, stuffing the envelopes full of pages and mailing them around the world. I record long, chatty episodes of my podcast, Pub Dates, talking about life. And I want a way to communicate with my readers that has room to stretch its legs.
I’ve been thinking, like the word nerd I am, about the word newsletter. I want this to be both — a place where I can share my news, and a letter to you. A place where I can reflect, and share what I’m up to. What I’m thinking about. What matters to me.
I named the newsletter Finding North because I want it to be an ongoing letter — over many years, I hope — about finding my way. Through publishing and through life, figuring out what matters, and choosing a path that’s true to who I am.
This monthly letter will also be your one-stop shop for keeping up to date with all my new books, new adventures, sales and giveaways. I’ll let you know when I’m touring, and share things first here, like new covers, and new book announcements.
My goal for this newsletter is that it will be conversational, full of stuff that made you glad you opened it, and a way for you to get to know me a little better. It’s a sort of inner sanctum, and though there’s room enough inside for everyone, I want to offer some special stuff to those who have chosen to walk through the door.
I’m glad you’re here, and I’d love it if you’d pull up a chair and get comfortable.
