Death By Living is due to be released in just a few weeks. A follow-up to Notes From the Tilt-a-Whirl, this book brings us a lot more of the same — Chestertonian exuberance, vivid descriptions, and the romance of orthodoxy. One of the perks we have in our family is that we get to read stuff like this on the done-writing date instead of the release date, which is a lot of fun. But in addition to the fun — for we were not put on this earth for pleasure alone — this means that we are in a position to say that this book is the hot stuff.
Now I understand, as the purchaser of many books, that placing a pre-order is not nearly as satisfying as just ordering one that will consequently be on your doorstep in just a few days. But ask yourself, as you go back and forth in your mind about this, what is the right thing to do?
UPDATE! If you pre-order from Canon, here, you will get a copy signed by the author.
(Note the new cover for Tilt.)
