The recently discovered small cache of Small Graces CD’s is an unexpected treasure. It’s a handpressed, backwoods edition that was done at a small recording studio in the pine forests of northern Minnesota. My friend, Pat Riley, who was once a cellist for the Baltimore Symphony, composed the musical interludes between the chapters. With the materials I’ve found, I’ve been able to assemble it into something unique and beautiful.
One of these days I’ll figure out how to set up an online store to sell books and such one-offs as reader’s copies, manuscript pages, and out-of-print editions — all of which I will personally sign,of course. But until that time, anything I sell has to done using the clunky, conestoga-era system of personal checks and the U.S. Mail.
So if you want one of these very rare signed two disc CD sets of my personal recording of Small Graces, you will need to send me a check for $20 at 885 Lake Forest Drive, Lake Oswego, Oregon 97034. This truly is a limited edition — how limited, I can’t say exactly because I haven’t bothered to count. All I can say for certain is that when I do count, I don’t think I’ll need more than all my fingers and toes.
What excites me the most is that I was able to find all the original cover and insert materials, so you will be getting this in the way I intended it to be presented. I seldom have the opportunity to pass something directly from my hands to yours, and certainly not without the intermediary of a publisher or corporate shaper of one sort or another. Not this time. This is directly from me to you. A small grace, as it were. And I’m happy to share.
