This is the best news I've heard since I learned I was moving back to Seattle! Congratulations on your exciting adventure! We all love your stories so much. Soon, even the folks who can't ride your bus will get a chance to experience a bit of it. Good luck with the project, Nathan!
it's only through the enthusiasm from people like yourself that things like this are able to happen! Thank you!
Fantastic! I'm very much looking forward to it too, Nathan. These stories have already setup space in a corner of my heart, and it will be wonderful to be able to always flip through these paper pages, digital ones, or if possible, both.
Thank you, Mr Walrus! The ball has been rolling on this for a little while already, and I can't wait to see it to fruition. The tactile experience of a reading a physical book means so much more to me than looking at screens, and I look forward to being able to offer such to all you wonderful readers!
I hope it will be available for my iPad, too. I can't wait to read it.
Thanks, Bill! We hope to have it in every format possible! Glad to hear of your support.
