The last I remember, this had been sent the the illustrator, or something. Will there be another book signing event featuring this? I know there was talk earlier of making it (book signing) an annual event, but I know how life just comes at you sometimes, or doesn't. Thanks for the update.

Hmmm, I should have known that.  You are always on top of everything.  I thought maybe I'd missed something, but I should have known there would have been chatter all over if plans were finalized.  Thanks!!  Have a great weekend.

We promised we'd report in when we had anything to report! 

We had dinner with Thorsten last night (that's why there was no video yesterday and won't be one until much later today, if at all!) and went over the layout and specifics of the book.  There are still a few details to iron out, but we're now well on the way to publishing the book.  

Stay tuned to this space:  There will be at least one (and probably more than one) book signing events, among other things.  We're so excited about this book, and thrilled to be a part of making it a reality!

And PS:  You guys are going to ADORE it - it's sure to be a classic!

WOW!  Now you've got us all excited & salivating over the prospect!  I know my 2 little toddler grandsons will love it & I cannot wait to get my hands on it.  And will be at the booksigning, too, with bells on!  Thanks for the great news Gina!  I'm sure you all enjoyed the company at dinner!

Thanks for the info Gina, I too thought that something was brewing but never said anything. I thought you might say "shut up Enis and wait". so I shut up. Hope you all had a wonderful time with Thorsten, he is such a nice man.

Take care,
Enis

OK - let me get this straight!  You abandoned US to have dinner with Thorsten to discuss your publishing his book of poetry for children? 
 
Let me see, make clips for the MB; dinner with Thorsten to discuss your publishing his book of poetry for children?  Make clips for the MB; dinner with Thorsten to discuss your publishing his book of poetry for children?  Make clips for the MB; dinner with Thorsten to discuss your publishing his book of poetry for children?  Make clips for the MB; dinner with Thorsten to discuss your publishing his book of poetry for children?  Make clips for the MB; dinner with Thorsten to discuss your publishing his book of poetry for children?

Kathy, Christy or Gina I have a question about the book.  I think I read somewhere (and my brain just can't quite bring it to the front where it was) that proceeds from the book will go to children's cancer research...or am I imagining this.  I know Thorsten donates a great deal to children's charities and was wondering which one this will be.  He is the MOST generous man and this does not surprise me at all.  Thanks again for any information you can give.

No, you aren't imagining things, that's the plan.

Thank you so much for confirming what I thought I knew Christy.  Thorsten really is an incredible, giving person, just one of the reasons he is loved and respected by so many!

A question for our dear Mods;

Is Thorsten going to recite his poems from the new book? Like the one he did so beautifully from Timber Ridge to Daymer Gardens?

I sure hope so.  The combination of his voice and his accent is just breathtaking....IMO.... I still get goose pumps every time I put his CD on.

Thorsten's voice is as beautiful & amazing as Andrea Bocelli's
..Calming yet Powerful.......

Sophie, we think a CD would be the perfect complement to Thorsten's new book of poems (which are so poignant, humorous, imaginative, clever, and/or just plain cuuuuute that it just kills us -- they beg to be read aloud), and he's discussed it with us, but no decision has been made yet.

Ohhhhhhh!!!!!!  I was just discussing TK's children's book with hubby!!  Yes!!  An accompanying CD would be just awesome!  Lexy still listens to her Timber Ridge CD all the time -- imagine a children's CD to go with the book -- she'd be in HEAVEN!  And so would I! Heeee!

Thank you, Kathy. It sounds wonderful. I can hardly wait for the book to come out. And hopefully accompanying CD.

Kathy, thanks for the update, I too can't wait and feel a CD with TK reciting would be a definite plus as I truly enjoy the CD from Timber Ridge and also purchased a few for some of my son's teacher's who really enjoyed the poetry.

Thanks and keep us posted. 

PS, do we have any idea as to when the book signing may occur?

Thanks for the update Kathy!  ITA a CD would be a fabulous addition! I listen to my Timber Ridge CD everytime I get in my car & nothing compares to that lush, smoky baritone voice of TK's.  So looking forward to a booksigning & hope it'll be soon!

Really looking forward to the book coming out.  My Samantha (6) and Sawyer (3) loved, "A leathery lizard lived with a wizard . . . if it's made by my best friend and me . . . "  I kept getting "read it again!" and Samantha being the GIRL that she is asked, "is the cake chocolate?"  I know they would love an audio version with Thorsten's voice - but then wouldn't we all? 

Any word as yet on when the book might be out and a book-signing might be scheduled?  I may move to Auckland New Zealand with family next year, so hopefully before that.  Or, how about scheduling one "down-under?"  Thorsten - ever been? 

I hate alarm clocks - especially at 4:30 AM (!) and his Timber Ridge CD has been such a gift to wake to - certainly puts me in a much better mind-set to start my day.  So, LEAN on him a little bit for the audio version as well - just not during hockey season.

A CD would be a great addition; as who can't get enough of that voice?

Thanks for the update and really looking forward to buying the book!

I really hope that Thorsten goes ahead with making the CD.  What a wonderful addition that would be to accompany his book.  I'm sure that my grandchildren are going to enjoy their copies of this book especially while hopefully listening to his voice reading it aloud to those of my little ones who can't read yet.
 
Thanks for the info, Kathy.

I plan to buy the book for my new great grand daughter, who will be here next Wednesday at the latest.  I would sooo love to have a CD as well so she can, as her mom says, hear the poetry read by the man who wrote it, so she knows how it should sound.

TKDreamy, I can't even believe you wrote this!  TK and Andrea Bocelli are the only CD's I have in my car!  Nothing soothes me like those two voices!  I've always thought, if TK has a singing voice, it must be like Andrea's!  So nice to know that someone else appreciates perfection!

  Gina... Do you have any idea WHEN this book will be available?  For some reason (don't know why) I thought it was scheduled for October, but haven't heard anything now for so long, I'm getting antsy. Really looking forward to this one (or ANYTHING Thorsten does!) and add me to the list of those hoping a CD will come with it. My " Timber Ridge" gets constant play. If it were a tape, it would have worn out long ago. LOVE THIS MAN !!!!!

Work is continuing on the project - you can't imagine how many things have to be done when publishing a book!  But we are one step closer to having the book completed.  All of the illustrations are finished (except for some finishing touches), the poems are assembled, and we're in the final design stages before the book goes to print.  I wish I could give you an exact date but we won't have an estimate on that until the book is actually on the printer's desk.
 
Stay tuned to this site for further info!

Thank you, Di -- it was totally our pleasure -- we've been like kids on Christmas Eve until the book was finally ready and we could send it out to everyone! I just posted that the orders have now all been shipped, so hopefully (if the USPS cooperates) you'll have yours in 2 or 3 days!
