16 August 2009: Soul Identity’s First Day

Today is Day One of Soul Identity. This morning Scott Waverly and his parents sneak a gun through security at BWI, and this afternoon he’ll take photos of a bluefish’s eyes.  If you want to read it in near-realtime, today’s a great day to start!

I started writing Soul Identity on New Years Day 2006. We had been living for a few months in Hyderabad, India — part of a 2 year contract — and we were sweltering in the heat. My resolutions: write every day, and complete my first draft before going home to Maryland. I chose August 16 because it was a long way out, and it was the birthday of my fourth child, my then-youngest son (today he turned five, and we’re celebrating at home in Washington state with his two younger brothers).

I’m so excited that this day has finally come! If you haven’t read Soul Identity yet, I invite you to give it a whirl.

Oh, and not to steal any thunder from Soul Identity’s big day, its sequel, Soul Intent, will be released in paperback on 9/9/9 (though Amazon’s Kindle Store has jumped the gun and already is selling it here).  Soul Intent takes place in both 1946 and October 2010.
