First Place! Midwest Book Awards!

I’m very honored to report that Here Comes the Sun received first place in the Autobiography/Memoir category for the Midwest Book Awards!

It was a very fun event last night. I’m posting some images from the evening including our “after party” going out of celebratory ice cream!

Thank you all for your continued support!

Hot Off the Press!!

We have our first books in hand! Very cool to see the finished product. We’re very excited to finally get to share this book with all of you!

Big news!! Here Comes the Sun is officially listed on Amazon for pre-orders!!

It’s kind of wild to finally see the book posted… it finally seems real. It’s also a little nerve wracking because release date is coming up fast now!

Maybe you can help me with an experiment. If you search “Here Comes the Sun” in books I’m the eleventh title down on the page.

I’m not sure how the Amazon logarithms work, but if you feel inclined to click on this link multiple times today, I’m sure it couldn’t hurt! Maybe we can move the book up the search ladder!!

Oh… and if you feel inclined to pre-order… well that would be quite cool as well!

Thanks again for all your support and encouragement! Release day is coming soon, and it means so much to have you on the team!

Announcement: First bookstore events!!

I’m very excited to announce that I have booked my first two book signing events at two great bookstores:

On Saturday, September 28 I will be signing books at:

Birchbark Books
2:00 to 3:00 p.m.
2115 W 21st Street
Minneapolis, MN

On Wednesday, October 9 I will be signing books at:

Common Good Books
7:00 to 8:00 p.m.
65 Western Ave N
St Paul, MN

If you are able to make it to one of these store events, I would really appreciate it.  Bookstore events are the best way to generate buzz for a book AND to convince bookstore owners to keep the book in stock due to demand.

I am working on finalizing details for a book signing at The Bookcase in Wayzata. I will pass along those details soon.

If you know of a bookstore that you think would be good for a signing event please send me the suggestion on the contact section of this website.

We’re only a few weeks away from the book launch!  Very excited to see everything coming together… and I’m even more excited to share the book with you all!
