Available Now… FOREVER THE ROAD

Last night at East Coast midnight, this pre-order e-book showed up on my Kindle.

Forever the Road just downloaded to my Kindle

Do pardon the blurry crappy photo. It was midnight, I had just finished watching Doctor Who with friends, then did a big mess o’ dishes, and you can only do so much when using an iPhone to take a close-up of your Kindle screen, all right?

Oh hell yes.

After years of work and 100 days to forever, my third book, Forever the Road, is available now in e-book and paperback.

The strange trip continues

“What a long, strange trip it’s been,” said The Grateful Dead.

They’re wrong.

What a long, strange trip it’s been, is, and always will be. That’s much more accurate.

Watch this space for news, events, and readings. Thank you so much for being along on this journey. I can’t wait to hear what you think of the book. The strange trip continues, and I hope that for you, it continues with Forever the Road.

Day 100

Travel. Destiny. Beer.

One last deep breath before the book release plunge. See you tomorrow, everyone.

From the Book

“You are just an ordinary person but one who loves the world and its roads and ways with all his heart. Love and power usually do best with those who don’t seek them out but instead accept them as the brilliance and burden that they are.”

Day 99: Forever is almost here

My son just learned that 2 signed copies of Forever the Road are all his. He put them on his own bookshelf.

My son just learned that 2 signed copies of Forever the Road are all his. He put them on his own bookshelf.

So here we are. 99 days ago, we started our countdown to forever. And now, forever is almost here. On Monday, Sept. 8, Forever the Road is available everywhere.

Behind the scenes, I’m taking care of final details, talking with folks, and fist-pumping with every email. It’s been an amazing journey—and the best part is, it’s all an amazing journey. This is just a particularly big part of the trip.

Thank you for sharing the road with me. See you Monday, space cowboy.

Day 90: 11 Days till FOREVER THE ROAD

Namaste la vista, baby. Forever the Road

11 is a good number.

Rufus Wainwight has a great song about it: “Woke up this morning, at 11:11. Wasn’t in Portland, and I wasn’t in Heaven.” (Easy to get those confused.)

2011 is the year my son was born.

11 is the number of my fave Doctor.

And from where we started back in May, with 100 days till forever, now there are only 11 days to go until Forever the Road comes out.

Need to catch up on everything we’ve talked about so far? Here you go:

From the Book

“Travel came to be part of me. I realized I love it more than being still. Even when it’s hard or scary or uncomfortable, I love the thrill of the road. Travel is an ultimate love. To see the world is to see yourself reflected everywhere you go. Yet it’s also about letting both the world’s light and darkness shine into you, show you things about yourself that you never knew. Above all, I came to see what was inside me: this special, boundless, shining love for the road, for the world. I learned I held it inside like this precious jewel. I held it close and no matter how dirty and dusty I got outside, that jewel, that love, stayed gleaming and pure.”
