Update 11/8/12: Sadly, my publisher’s brother lost his battle with cancer and has gone home to be with the Lord. My condolences are with Linda and her family.
Dear Chanson fans and friends. I had hoped to announce the release date for my books this month, but due to a critical illness in my publisher’s immediate family and her need to leave town to be at her loved one’s side, Chanson will most likely not be released by Thanksgiving as we had hoped. I have decided not to stress over the release date when I have no control over these kind of situations. If we don’t make it by Christmas, it will certainly be released shortly after the first of the year. I trust you will all bear with me, and meanwhile, please keep my publisher in your thoughts and prayers. She lost her sister last year, and this is very tough for her to now see another family member going through a similar health crisis. I love all of you for hanging in there with me!
We are very involved in working on the CD and I should be making that special announcement soon. Nathan is working on the orchestrations for 3 new songs, and will be composing a few more instrumental pieces as well. He also has plans to release Michele Karmin’s breathtaking recording of Firelight Through Diamonds before Christmas.
