Greetings all! I hope everyone is getting excited about the upcoming hunting season. I know I am, but not as much as my antsy Brittanys. Less than two weeks left in Idaho! It can’t come soon enough.
I wanted to give you a quick update on my book, Heaven on Earth: Stories of Fly Fishing, Fun & Faith, which was published earlier this year. I am so grateful that the book has received such a positive responses from those who have reviewed it. Most recently, Jen Kugler Hansen of Flyfishilicious posted a great five-star review, part of which I wanted to share with you:
I’m typically not a book reader, I just don’t usually have the time nor patience for it…but when Andy approached me a few months ago with the opportunity to read his book, I jumped on board. It’s about fly fishing — why not give it a crack?! . . . .
This book has had a permanent place in my purse for the better part of six months now . . . And during those extremely rare brief moments of silence . . . Waiting at the doctor’s office, in the car at school pick-up, or just enjoying a bread bowl at the bakery sans kids, I was able to take small bites out of this book.
I have been enriched. Andy takes a thoughtful approach to each section ~ short fish tales of family and life with a soulful touch. He talks of his faith and makes some really insightful references and analogies to scripture and fly fishing that I was especially thankful for. As most of you probably know by now, my journey into fly fishing began almost exactly a year ago (Aug 2011) – directly after a tumultuous marriage that ended in divorce, leaving me the primary caretaker for 3 precious kiddos – which is not always a walk in the park. Fly fishing became my escape, my solitude, peace, therapy and renewed my life. . . . . I’ve put a lot of thought recently into the magical (or is it Divine) energy that comes with fly fishing and every turn of the page seemed to hit the nail on the head in this book for me. Andy’s words touched something deep in me, stirred emotions that brought laughter, peace and relaxation, and I want to thank him for that!

Thanks Jen! It’s reviews and feedback like this that makes it all worth it!
In my last post about the book, I mentioned that Heaven on Earth is now available in Kindle, Nook, and Google E-Books. I’m happy to announce that it is now available in iTunes.
