God in the Yard is Here...

God in the Yard

There is something about a book in my hand. The weight of it, the way the pages move. I admit I felt a sense of delight when I opened my mail today, and touched God in the Yard for the first time.

I am such a sentimental writer.

Thank you all for your warm encouragements. When you open the cover, you will find the book's dedication is to you.

(UPDATE: God in the Yard is now on Amazon Retail. :)

Glad you used that photo, btw.

Okay. So...would it be totally overkill to buy the bound copy even though I've been reading on Kindle? My frugal side is struggling with that need to smell the paper...

Cake being served here -- luscious raspberry and white chocolate with dark cocoa drizzles. On fine china with silver forks and rich, finely-ground Sumatran coffee in little cups with real cream. Pale roses on the table. And linen napkins. DO NOT forget the linen napkins, please.

Only the best for my friend L.L. Barkat!!

Doing the happy dance for you and wishing my arms reached that far. :)
Hey, and maybe the third time will be the charm for that signature. Although I do own a few VERY early originals :)
Love you.

Holding tangible evidence of the imprint of your heart must indeed be thrilling and I know it will transform many lives for glorious purpose. Looking forward to meeting God in a new way through your words. Warmest congrats.

I remember reading an excerpt a while back. It lingered long with me.
I will be saving pennies for a copy of this LL.
Can't wait to read it all!
