Hi Everyone,I recently heard some good news from Jim Haskett, our printer. He is saying that the books should be finished by Dec. 1 and he will deliver them to me at my house. I have asked him for the first 100 copies and will be happy to send those out to you if you’d like your complementary copy in advance of your order. I don’t know yet what the cost of sending one book will be, so when we get the books, weigh them and find out the shipping costs to your area, I’ll let you know. This has been a long but very eventful year for me and I thank all of you so much for contributing your best to my praise to the Lord Jesus.Look for my next email, the arrival of the books!!!Sincerely, Diane
Hi Everyone,A few days ago, Georgia Herod, our New Song assistant editor, flew in to visit me and other friends in northern Utah. She had a wonderful suggestion — that she and I meet the printer and see the setup as the book is being produced.So I called about doing that and this morning, we met with Jim Haskett of Watkins Printing, just outside of Logan, Utah. He said because the coverstock was heavier than the original press machine could handle, they moved the entire project to the offset press (see photos below). This will give us a more professional look but has not added to the costs!Allowing for the Thanksgiving holiday, the forecasted release will be around Tuesday, November 29th. He will verify this with me as time goes on. When complete, he will be delivering all the copies to me and I will then take them to our church bookstore. As soon as those books are available at the bookstore, you will all be hearing from me! If you have any questions, please let me know.Here’s how the book has been advertised by some of you. Thanks so much for all you are doing to get the word out!• One of our writers sent a copy of the cover and the preview copy (attached below) to people in his address book and several responded, sending me an email to order a one or more copies.• Others with web and blogsites have added these same attachments to their sites to inform their friends.• Those with writers’ groups have already ordered copies for their book tables.• Those who go on the road for speaking engagements have also made their orders.More later,DianeIf you would like to use these items, please add this splash from our website: Following the example of the psalmist in Psalm 40, the writers for this collection have remembered their histories with God, describing His rescue, their salvation, His comfort in a time of crisis, or leading when they needed a new direction. They hope that their collective hymn of praise will be an encouragement to you. For questions or to place an order, send Diane Kulkarni an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

I wanted to give you the update as I heard it just now from our printer, Jim Haskett of Watkins Printing. The inside pages of the book are ready and they are waiting for the cover stock, which was on back order, to be delivered either today or tomorrow. Once the right machine is chosen for the binding (the cover stock is heavier than they normally use), they will go forward and finish the project.
So we are so very close to having this book in the mail to you! I can’t wait to see the packages on their way.
Thank you for your patience and as I said earlier, I will notify you when the books are in our church bookstore and the shipping costs can finally be determined.
I just revived an e-mail, the book is just about finished…. WOW!!!
