Soon, I expect the urban fairies to dump their excess coinage on me to redistribute to someone who can use it. In the past, I have dropped it off with the Food Gatherers during their Rockin' For the Hungry program.

Desperately tryingt o catch up with this web-site. Not doing very well. BUT I did get a shot of a bird at the fairy door of Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea.


I'm working on a seasonal card of the fairy door at Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea. Hopefully I can finish it in time for THIS season. If all goes well, I'll also have the long over due RedShoes fairy door card too.


The seasonal card of the fairy door at Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea is on it's way! It should be here tomorrow. The RedShoes fairy door postcard is likely to be here on Monday.


Yesterday there was only one copy of "Who's Behind the Fairy Doors?" left at Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea, so I decided to sign and illuminate it and left a note in it. Today there are none. YAY! & boo hoo... the ending of this chapter *. There are still posters and cards available there along with the fairy door and micro brew café to visit. Sweetwaters is a wonderful place regardless of the "accessories"!

* The books are still available at The Peaceable Kingdom .


"Who's Behind the Fairy Doors?" has sold out at Nicola's Books. Still 16 copies at The Peaceable Kingdom.
Perhaps available at Borders store #1. They had 2 a few weeks ago.

I'm a bit sad they are gone. No more. :(
A happy side is: I am not stuck with boxes of unsold books! :)
Sad: minor income stream is gone. :(
Happy: It won some awards and was on Nicola's Books Best Seller list several times. And the Ann Arbor News Best Seller List back when there was an Ann Arbor News.

I received a lovely e-mail today (excerpt below):

Dear Jonathan,

.... I found your website just yesterday when looking for something fun to do with my children. Imagine my suprise at the hidden treasures in Ann Arbor.

We traveled through downtown and out to the bookstore. We were there when they called you about additional copies of your book. The clerk informed me you were out and undecided about printing more. I am pleading with you to please print more copies.

Some of us did not know of the fairy population in Ann Arbor. You can trust me when I say, that knowledge is growing. My daughter begged to have the photos of the doors to share with her class today. My son took additional copies to share with his class.

I have told several people at both schools as well as two families up north about our adventure. And I plan on sharing this adventure with my daughter's daisy scout leader this afternoon at our meeting.

I have always found fairies to be wonderful fun creatures and I wanted to thank you for sharing this tid bit with us. We will be watching for more doors to appear daily. My daughter is courious about how to attract her own fairy. Her grandpa seems to have a little fairy magic, we are hoping he will share.

Thank you again, *******
