As I’ve been on tour with The Lost Book of the Grail I’ve been showing a collage-like image of a lot of the different books, magazines, places, and even furniture that inspired details in the book. One item in that collage is a CD of John Rutter’s Requiem. I almost always get a question about this—why is Rutter a part of my book?
It has arrived at last: publication day for The Lost Book of the Grail. I am looking forward to getting out there on the road and sharing my thoughts about the book with you and of course I’ll be excited to hear your reactions when you have read it. But on publication day, I make a tradition of saying “thank you” to all those who helped make a book possible. I do this by reprinting the acknowledgements from the back of the book. I hope this will not only express my gratitude to so many who help and support me, but also will encourage you to always read an author’s acknowledgements. We put a lot of thought into those words and they, perhaps more than any others in the book, are truly spoken from the heart. Thank you for reading my blog and (I hope) for buying and reading my book. And a special thanks to those below.
