First of all, thank you everyone, for your incredible support and encouragement. If you are receiving this newsletter, it is because you have signed up to be a part of Team American Sutra, which is just a playful way of collectively supporting the launch of my new book. I expect that this newsletter will be going out to you once or twice a week, so please look to it for progress on the book’s launch as well as the publication of related American Sutra podcasts, interviews, book reviews, and videos.

As you know, the book is scheduled for official release on February 19, 2019 (Day of Remembrance), which is less than a month away. I am gearing up for a national book tour and wide reaching publicity, with the hopes that with your help, we can reach as many people as possible in the first two weeks of the launch. Each newsletter will include a selection of upcoming book talks scheduled around the country, and if you can take the time, I would love to see you at one of these public events.

I have set up an American Sutra Facebook page, which I invite you to "like" to get my most timely updates, including new book tour events, quotes and excerpts from the book, and to follow me while I take the book on the road.

Lastly, while I don’t want to harass anyone into accumulating excess material goods, if you don't have preference of where to get your copy of the book, I hope you will support your local, independent bookstore, whether in-store or online. Alternatively, feel free to follow these links to the larger online retailers.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding American Sutra or this newsletter, please email me.

Kindest regards,
