I asked readers of this blog where they would take their next best journey.
Lenore said Bologna, Italy, NYC, and perhaps Senegal and Kuwait. Bee dreamed of Greece. Bermudaonion and wordlily named Asia, Melissa Sarno named Japan, and Kelly H-Y spoke of Tuscany. Inspired by Nora Roberts, Fantast fantasized about living in Montana and Alaska. Pink Dogwood said she would either stay home and live a simpler life or travel beneath the Tuscan sun. Cuileann said "the faroe islands." CK said "the city that never sleeps (New York)." Sarah Unger would like to stay home. Mandy spoke of England/Ireland, Malta, Peru, and the southern US. Steph Su spoke of a life spent partly in San Francisco, Portland, and neighborhoods in Canada, New York, Maine, Nebraska, and Australia. Amy is already planning a trip to a working winery near Sienna. Susan Uhlig spoke of Haiti.
There's no rational choosing from among so many terrific dreams, and so I did the irrational: put the names, literally, into a hat, and drew one out.
The winner: wordlily.
Then I thought, oh what the heck, and I drew a second name out: Bermudaonion.
Then, because I was feeling lucky, I drew out a third: Kelly H-Y.
Get in touch with me, you winners three, and I will send you a copy of The Heart is Not a Size, which will take you to Juarez. Heart is officially here, arriving a little early, at least in my house. With this blog entry, I officially launch this Indiebound book.
