Blogging’s been sparse here down the home stretch of distilling some of our insights into book form. See? I’m so worn out that I’m mixing metaphors.
UPDATE: Some of you might be asking, “Hey, what happened to Blooming Idiots? THIS IS THE SAME BOOK. My editors had a late insight – a good one – that there could be a perception problem. Can you imagine a Tweet something like “I just read a #book about #autism called Blooming Idiots” ? The implication would be that people with special needs are idiots – precisely the opposite of the book’s message.
We tried some artsy titles, but they made it sound like a gardening manual. So we went literal, just laid it on the line. Wise move, which is why one has editors.
Also, some have asked about formats. It will be available in paperback and in a Kindle version. At the Amazon page, there should be a show all formats link. If that doesn’t work, try clicking the link version of author name (Timothy Fountain). That should show the choices.
We pray that it will reach and help family caregivers, especially those just stepping onto the ground we’ve been walking these last couple of decades.
And hopefully we’ll be back to blogging and sharing more thoughts. Thank you all for being part of this.
