Dear Ones —

I just found out that the paperback of THE SIGNATURE OF ALL THINGS will be debuting on next week's New York Times Bestseller's list at Number 5!

I am grateful, grateful, grateful.

To put it mildly, a book like this one is never a sure thing — commercially speaking. This novel was an act of passion and love for me, but I never dared to assume that my readers would necessarily want to come along with me on this particular journey.

How can I say this better?

Ah, here is how I can say it better:

You just made a 500 page novel about a 19th century woman who studies mosses into a New York Times Bestseller!

And people say that books are dead.

I love you for this one, you guys.

I really love you for it.
