"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 yesterday (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, *******

This Sunday, December 12, 2010 about 6PM

I will be on WAAM (1600AM), Ed Hoffamn's "Speaking of Art" program.

This should be fun.


The radio interview was, inded, fun. I ha dto go out in the middle of the blizzard, but it was worth it. I have not heard any feedback or confirmation that anyone actually listened to it though.

I just heard from Peaceable Kingdom yesterday that they sold their last copy of "Who's Behind the Fairy Doors?"

It seems that chapter of Urban Fairies Operations is closed.


What's next?

I guess New Year's Day is next. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.
