Notes from the Writing Life

The Wishing Box is on sale!

The Wishing Box is on sale!

My novel for adults, The Wishing Box, has had two lives. It got great reviews when it came out in 2000, including being named as one of the best books of the year by the Los Angeles Times. But sales were never outstanding, and eventually it went into hibernation. Then, last year, it was reissued as an e-book. To my delight and surprise, the book took off, climbing up the Kindle best-seller list. Now Amazon is offering it at the low, low price of $1.99 for the month of November, and it's your chance to see what the fuss is about. If you want to read it for your book group, you can find a reader' s guide on my website, as well as interviews with me about the book. You can even send a request to have the e-book signed through Authorgraph.


As an e-book skeptic, I've been wowed by the power this new distribution channel has to reach new readers. And as an author, I'm very grateful that a book that I still feel proud of has had a chance to live a second life.
