We’re still in quarantine, and hopefully coming out soon. I will clean out my inbox tomorrow, I promise. Meanwhile, I got online this morning to send regrets for an event this afternoon, and there was a book cover in my inbox:
Woohoo! So, looks like Classroom Management for Catechists is the final title on the book, yay. Easy to remember. Or you could remember it as “that purple book”. I’m sure your local Catholic bookstore owner will appreciate you asking to see all the purple books in stock. Narrow it down by saying, “That purple book from Liguori, with the lady on the cover who’s wearing a clean white ruffly blouse while she paints with preschoolers, and it’s still clean, I want to be like her one day.”
(That lady is not me. I advise you to wear an apron when painting with preschoolers. But think of it as an aspirational photo. They didn’t do the “before” image. If you’re buying my book, you probably have your own “before” images permanently seared in your memory, and are pursuing Memory Destruction Therapy in the hope that even though everyone else in your parish will never forget The Time They Let You Teach Kindergarten, maybe you can.)
My understanding — don’t hold me to this, because I’m working from a few conversations last August, and this news could change, is that the e-book will come out early spring (As soon as February? Maybe?), and the paperback for the “Fall 2013” line. Apparently “Fall” is a loosely-used term in the publishing world, which can mean as early as, “I’m at the waterpark” or as late as “Help me shovel this snow.”
Now back to our regularly-scheduled Advent break.
