Been a long time coming for The Transpersonal Papers (1861-2010).
Three editors, two proofreaders, two designers, four printers, and hours, days, weeks, months, years, lifetimes, (I know I'm overstating), of writing, traveling, shooting, editing, remembering, hiking, and more writing, shooting, and editing, but I'm not complaining. No, no, no.
And apologies for not having the dough right now, to print The Transpersonal Papers as a coffee-table book as I had originally planned. ($10,000, it would have cost. Maybe someday.) But you now can buy it, for $14.95, as an Ebook on the Apple IPad, and I expect it to be available within a couple days on the Nook and the Kindle as well.
I just looked at it on my new IPad. The photos, text and design look grand.
And as an extra surprise, Bozo In Love is now up on IBooks too, ($9.95), as well as the rest of my catalog: Flame Spirals, Hoop Dancing, and Dementia Blues, on IBooks, Nook and Kindle.
Just in time for Christmas.
And don't worry. All but The Transpersonal Papers can still be bought as a book book through Fezziwig Press. I have plenty. Just go to www.fezziwigpressonline.com, for the hardbounds and paperbacks, but go to ITunes, today, (and Kindle and Nook, soon) for the ebooks.
Heavy sigh from my third story apartment balcony. I look out onto the Tucson city lights in the valley below. Cold, dry air embraces me. I inhale deeply. Exhale.
A very good night in the desert.
Think I'll make a cup of coffee with egg nog and play some Angry Birds on my new IPad.
(Thanks again, to all who came down to the Tucson Open Studios, over the weekend. And prayers to those in North Carolina in the aftermath of the tornados, and to my sister who is getting a biopsy today for her returning cancer.)
I'm off to California for about a week: A couple days in Los Angeles, doing some book work and such, a couple days in San Francsico, seeing the Belgian choir Scala, and a couple days on the road doing research for the next book, namely visiting the railroad stations in San Bernardino, Bakersfield, perhaps the depots in Fresno and Emeryville, and for sure, marveling at The Tehachapi Loop.
Important: If you order any books or prints from Fezziwig Press, I'll ship them upon my return to Tucson.
And thanks, y'all, for your continued prayers for my mother Mary. And put my sister Pamela in your thoughts as well. She's having serious complications from her breast cancer surgery from a couple years ago.

[From Stu: I have great friends. Glad the video I shot at Horseshoe Canyon came to such good use. Wonderful place, Horseshoe Canyon; wonderful people, Charles, Terri and MaryAnn; wonderful song, Cherokee Girl.]
[Teaser: Morman Tea plays a role in the novel I'm writing. Under advice of other authors who are really go at this, I best say little else about the book, besides I'm enjoying the heck out of writing fiction. Hope to have the novel done by the end of the year, and in ebook and book book form soon after.]
