Ink and Paper (guest post from Kathryn Soper, c jane's distinguished editor)


Like any normal (?) person, I wish for things I'll never get in this lifetime (like world peace, a flat stomach, and a husband who likes chick movies). But one of my wishes just came true--and I'll bet one of yours just did as well:
c jane published a book.

No, you're not dreaming. There's an actual ink-and-paper collection of all your favorite c jane posts available for purchase this very moment. And if you can handle even more good news, get a load of this: All royalties will go to benefit Nie Nie. So when you curl up in bed with a cup of cocoa and this collection of c jane's quirks and quips, you'll have an extra-big warm fuzzy knowing you're lightening the burdens of one amazing woman.
This 285-page, square-format paperback was compiled by c jane's Segullah sisters, and includes 137 of her best and brightest posts from 2005-2008. The story concludes shortly before that fateful day in August when Stephanie was injured. We'll create a sequel volume detailing the current chapter of c jane's life, and in due time, you'll be able to enjoy that collection as well.
I doubt I need to convince you that as a writer and a woman, c jane is one-of-a-kind. As we've been compiling, formatting, and editing c jane's story over the past month, I've had the privilege of reading the text again and again. I've laughed and cried just as much on the fifth reading as I have on the first. Whether you're a long-time lurker on c jane's blog, a daily commentor, or an excited newbie, you're gonna love having c jane's wit and wisdom at your fingertips. And I'll bet you've got some people on your holiday gift list that you've been dying to convert!
So, whip out those credit cards and place your order through Lulu.com. Within a few days, you'll have c jane hanging around your home. Enjoy it! -Kathryn Soper


p.s. c jane will update about the weekend as soon as she can!
