Happy Launch Day for The Soul of the Family Tree!
August 24, 2021

Dear Friends,

Today's the day!  The Soul of the Family Tree: Ancestors, Stories, and the Spirits We Inherit is available in print and e-book form (the audio version is unfortunately delayed, but it will be available soon). You can find it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online sites, as well as in bookstores. I urge you to patronize your local independent bookstore if you can--they are community treasures worth supporting--and you might also ask your local library to order it. 

If you open this email in time, you can listen to an interview I'm doing at 10 am (Central) with Charity Nebbe on Iowa Public Radio's Talk of Iowa. The interview will also be a podcast after it airs. 

Thanks for the kind notes many of you have sent me--and a special thanks to those serving on the launch team. I appreciate your willingness to be early readers and to write reviews.

If you like my new book, I hope you'll tell other people about it, either in person or on social media. Word-of-mouth is the single most important factor in a book's success. And if you'd like to use it in a book group, here are discussion questions.

I hope you enjoy reading about my journey through the Web of Wyrd---and that my book stimulates you to do your own climb up your family tree!
