Hello, everyone --

I hope and pray you and yours are staying healthy in these unsettling times. 

I am currently sheltering in place and "mom-schooling" my son. (I swore I'd never attempt homeschooling. Mom-schooling is different, right?)

As our individual and collective priorities shift, I find myself increasingly thankful for every day, every hearty meal, every good night's sleep ... and looking forward to the day when we can emerge from isolation and spend time together again.

Even as much larger concerns loom, I hope you don't mind me sharing a few bits of writing-related news. 

All best wishes,

Coming soon: new publisher, new edition

The Same Moon has been picked up by Camphor Press! Camphor is based out of England and Taiwan, and specializes in English-language literature of East Asia. They are amazing to work with and anticipate releasing the new edition of The Same Moon in May 2020 (soon!).
Bonus: The new edition will include an epilogue about what my friend Linda calls the HEA. Happily Ever After. (Am I the only one who didn't know that term?) This is for those who wonder what happened after I left Japan. I just finished writing it yesterday. This is fresh!


**Limited availability** 
The Same Moon!

I have about a dozen copies of the first edition remaining
and am selling them for $15 each, including media shipping to U.S. addresses.  

Also coming soon: rural Japan anthology

If you are interested in more stories about life in rural Japan, you are in luck! Camphor Press is releasing a rural Japan anthology this summer, including my chapter on how the koto -- Japanese zither -- helped me enter a new life in Japan. I'm excited to be part of this project, which includes 18 writers -- some of whose books live on my bookshelf.

Other ongoing writing

Japan, faith, yoga and food are the most common topics I address on my blog, which I update most weeks.

I'd love to have you join me! 

An invitation to yoga

I usually teach Holy Yoga at my church and our local YMCA. Due to the pandemic, though, I am offering classes Thursday evenings via Zoom. If you'd like to join us, please let me know.
I so appreciate your support of The Same Moon and my other writing, and would love for you to share this email with others who might be interested.
