"Lord of All Things" is out now!

It was on 18th december, half past seven in the evening, when suddenly our door bell rang.

It was already pitch dark, and we had a thunderstorm that evening here at the most western coast of Brittany, France (as we have often in december). Out of the dark, through the heavy rain, appeared a man from UPS, carrying a heavy box, happy to unload it without much delay. "Christmas time", he said as he handed me the form I had to sign, "a lot to do." (He said it en Français, of course.)
I signed the paper, wondering what this delivery might be, because as far as I knew, everything I've ordered had already arrived. The sender adress was printed too small to read in the dim light of the entrance. So, while the man from UPS ran back to his car, I carried the thing inside and simply opened it, curiously.

It was something I somehow knew was to come, but didn't expect it at that time: My author's copies of Lord of All Things! Twenty of them, wonderfully crafted books. I picked the first one and spent the next hour browsing it, just as delighted as back then, almost twenty years ago, when I held my first printed book ever in my hands.

Meanwhile, my dear readers, the book is out. It's a week already that my novel is available in every format we use to have today, it is getting its first reviews on Amazon, which are, until now, very much in it's favor – so, get on board, the ride ist about to begin!
