Today, all the orders for the limited edition sewn-hardback of Sister Fox’s Field Guide to the Writing Life, by Jane Yolen, have begun their migration to their new homes. If you ordered one, cross your fingers and sit tight. This is way more exciting than the arrival of the Hogfather. Sister Fox is bringing you wonders you don’t even know you want yet. We can’t promise they’ll arrive by Christmas. They might arrive by Hogmanay. And certainly you should have had a chance to read it several times by Groundhog’s Day.
While we’re planning a mass market edition for next year, only 144 of this beautiful first edition were made. This is a special book. Happy reading, and hopefully the Field Guide will help you identify ever more poems in the wild.
