My New Book Has Been Sent From The Printer

I just got an email from my agent that her copies of Let Them Be Eaten By Bears – A Fearless Guide To Taking Our Kids Into The Great Outdoors have arrived.

And she sent me this pic from her office in New York:

If They Have To Write A Disclaimer, Then It’s Going To Be Fun

From the new, typeset copyright page of my forthcoming book, Let Them Be Eaten By Bears:

“Outdoor recreational activities are by their very nature potentially hazardous. All participants in such activities must assume the responsibility for their own actions and safety. If you have any health problems or medical conditions, consult with your physician before undertaking any outdoor activities. The information contained in this guide book cannot replace sound judgment and good decision making, which can help reduce risk exposure, nor does the scope of this book allow for disclosure of all the potential hazards and risks involved in such activities. Learn as much as possible about the outdoor recreational activities in which you participate, prepare for the unexpected, and be cautious. The reward will be a safer and more enjoyable experience.”

“…nor does the scope of this book allow for disclosure of all the potential hazards and risks involved?”

“Prepare for the unexpected”?

I love it.

New Book Deal With Perigee/Penguin

My nonfiction proposal just sold last week to Marian Lizzi at Perigee (and imprint of Penguin Book Group).  My agent, Adriann Ranta, sold the proposal at auction.

Let Them Be Eaten By Bears:  A Fearless Guide to Taking Young people into the Outdoors will come out in the spring of 2013.

Now to finish writing the draft…
