Be Still!

Yesterday was a day to celebrate. The publisher of BE STILL! Departure from Collective Madness graciously agreed to used Vincent van Gogh‘s painting from the asylum of Saint-Rimy as the Be Still! Departure from Collective Madness’s cover.

“Prisoners Exercising (After Dore)” – Vincent van Gogh, 1890. Also called “The Prisoners’ Round”

Today Be Still! is going through the final steps before publication by Wipf and Stock Publishers in Eugene, Oregon.

It will take two to three weeks before Be Still! will appear on Amazon. You will find it sooner on the Wipf and Stock site at reduced price. Those in the Greater Twin Cities will be invited to a book launch and book signing party where Be Still! Departure from Collective Madness will be available at reduced cost.

Grace and Peace,

    • Thank you, Sue. On Tuesday I Bob Todd, a highly successful publicist, signed on as the publicist, a great relief to my soul. I’m thinking of a tour down through Madison WI, Chicago, Indianapolis, and Cincinnati later this winter or this spring. I should wait until you’re back from Florida!!!

    • Thanks, Cynthia. I was SO pleased they chose to use it. Wipf and Stock if very clear in their Author’s Guide that the publisher makes the decision about cover design. They are very clear that it is “rare” for them to use an author’s suggestion. Three cheers for Mike Surber, the designer, and to Matthew Wimer, editor.
