Taking Care of Bizness

Behold, a real photograph of the real book.

Smells like a real book too. Mmmmmmmmm

In case you forgot, you can still pre-order through next Thursday, March 8th, at the discounted rate of $10.50, plus shipping. After that, the book will cost $15 plus shipping.

Early bird gets the worm (for 30% cheaper).

You can either pre-order by pressing this button:

Or click on this link: Stansbury House Publications.

This book will also be available to scratch-n-sniff, leaf through or peruse at the Story at Home Conference on March 9th and 10th. Discounts for the book will be available for attendees, and several of the authors, including moi, will be there (with our crystal balls) to tell you who you are.

Actually DeNae ixnayed my crystal ball idea. She says Tell Me Who I Am is more of a rhetorical request, but whatevah.

Either way, here's a recap of what you'll be getting when you order:

Tell Me Who I Am is a collection of stories and essays depicting the faith, struggles, and universal experiences of sixteen LDS writers. Told with sensitivity and humor, these tales offer a glimpse into a religious culture that is alternately criticized, admired, and misunderstood. Self-reflective in tone, Tell Me Who I Am will inspire and delight readers with its heart-wrenching, head-nodding and often flat-out funny narratives. While dogma may define a people, this groundbreaking anthology shows how our individual stories ultimately tell us who we are.

Compiled by DeNae Handy. Beautifully designed and illustrated by Jana Parkin.

Yay for beautiful books!! And I suppose you can bring your crystal ball to the conference, but I draw the line at seances.

I'm looking forward to reading the book and all of my favorite writers' testimonies. If you can't bring the crystal ball, maybe bring a liahona--you may not be able to tell us who we are, but you can certainly tell us where to go! lol

HA, Liahona! That's a good one, Momza.

And for the record, there are no testimonials in the book. It's just stories. Nothing overt, which is why it's groundbreaking. ha ha
