A special invitation from Kent
I just got back from the Pacific Northwest where the buds are beginning to show on the branches and the clear, bracing winds of spring are in the air. What I found when I got home to northern Minnesota is several feet of snow and temperatures that still are stubbornly hovering around the zero degree mark. But winter has had her run, and spring will not be denied. And with spring comes an exciting time for my writing and speaking.
I have finally finished the third book in the trilogy that began with Neither Wolf nor Dog and continued with The Wolf at Twilight. This third book, The Girl who Sang to the Buffalo, will be published this fall by New World Library. I printed, bound, and signed 20 copies of the first chapter to send out free to the next 20 readers who purchase any book or gift basket. Only a few remaining copies! (Sorry, in stock items only)
I’m very excited about The Girl who Sang to the Buffalo. It took three years to write and has a unique character about it. A few early readers have said they like it the best of the three books. I’ll write more about it later. But, for now, you can get a feel for it by purchasing any item here and getting the free signed first chapter sent along with your order.
There also is movement on the film of Neither Wolf nor Dog. The director, Steven Simpson, is currently assembling a cast and tying down locations. We appear to have funding and are intending to shoot this summer. Again, more information will be coming soon.
I also have decided to reprint one of my favorite literary children, A Haunting Reverence, on my own. I called it my poetic, quiet child who would never speak in public. But enough people found it and knew of it and have asked me to make it available. So I am embarking upon a self-published reprint that you will be able to purchase directly. If any of you have thoughts on whether I should change the title from A Haunting Reverence, go to my website, www.kentnerburn.com, and contact me through that site.
While you’re there, take a look at the Common Ground public television segment on me and my work — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgHs9uk5qYI. I think it was well done, and will be followed up with a full hour version fairly soon.
Have a good spring, all. Smell those flowers, get on those bikes, love your family and pet those dogs and cats. We all deserve a season of renewal after this winter that would not relent.
