The followup to DRAWING OUT THE DRAGONS, Book II of The Meditations, THE BARBIZON DIARIES – A Meditation on Will, Purpose, and the Value Of Stories is now available for sale at the Coppervale Marketplace, and will very shortly be up at Amazon and B&N.com. It is gorgeous, moving, inspiring, and wrenching, in all the best ways. Early readers have already responded with five-star reviews at Goodreads. This is the trio: pdf, epub, and mobi, all in one zipped file, so you can read it on any device. All the DRAWING OUT THE DRAGONS Kickstarter supporters will either be sent one directly, or given a link for a download. If DotD was my heart, this one is my soul – it’s the center of my personal mythology. Mythologies are huge, sweeping things. And the grandest stories are those with the widest arcs of triumph and despair. As much as we may want to, we may not be able to avoid the despair — but triumph is a matter of will. DotD was written for everyone, but THE BARBIZON DIARIES is an advanced course in surviving the Refiner’s fire — because some stories are too important not to share, and some stories are too meaningful to hide. If you find something of value in it, I hope you will post about it, on Facebook and at Goodreads, and send people to read DRAWING OUT THE DRAGONS. It’s the primer for this one, and really should be read first. Help me spread the word, and maybe, together, we can start some good trouble that will grow larger than what I can do alone.
With luck, it’ll grow larger than us all.
Love, your brother in moxie,
