Christi will be taking part in the Burbank Book Festival on May 7, 2011, from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public. It will feature over 100 authors, have kids activities, and mini-workshops for aspiring writers. If you are in the area, come by to meet her and get a signed copy of the book.
We wanted to let you all know that we have released an updated version of Part 1. The typos have all been fixed (we hope) and we added a couple more short stories. Currently, paper copies are available at Amazon and Lulu, PDF copies are available at Lulu. It will also be available at some other bookstores and in e-pub format in the relatively near future. Part 2 continues to progress at a slow but steady pace.
Nordhavn has been making a series of videos to promote their boats. They featured us in one of them, and they even let us talk about the book at the end!
Sorry we have not been keeping the blog updated. All is well with us; life has just gotten busy. We are still hoping to find that missing SD card so we can load the rest of our Passage Across America Photos and Alaska on a Cruise Ship photos. Also, we had work done to Kosmos in November that we want to write about, as well.
Jeff Merrill did the most extensive review to date of The Unexpected Circumnavigation. Full disclosure: Jeff is our friend and our Nordhavn salesperson. But above all, Jeff has incredible integrity, and we believe his review is objective and complete. All of the feedback we have gotten on the book so far has been positive. We are still the number 1 selling travel book on Lulu!
