A Special Entry: The Sacred Ground










[Edit: You can pre-order the book right now at Barnes & Noble here]


I have news. I mentioned it on facebook and on twitter. But now I have details. And the only place I haven't said anything, is here.

After a long time, the book I've been working on for you, is done. Nearly 200 of the best, most relevant entries and photos from the I Wrote This For You project are being published on the 20th of December 2011 in print and as an ebook.

The book is split up into four sections; Sun, Moon, Stars, Rain.

It puts things into an order.

It also contains several entries that only appear between its pages.

An enhanced version of the book for tablets will appear next year with music, readings and video.

More news will follow.

If you'd like to get involved, I need someone to write 'iwrotethisforyou.me' in the most interesting place they can find (no freeway overpasses). Napkins, books left behind, notes on notice boards or slipped under doors, leaves, the dust on car windows or traced over someone's skin.

I just never want anyone to come here who didn't find something.

Between now and January 1, If you write 'iwrotethisforyou.me' somewhere interesting, where someone can find it, and send me the picture at pleasefindthis at gmail dot com, I'll post the best ones to facebook and send the creator of the most creative entry a signed copy of the I Wrote This For You book.

There's a lot of exciting stuff happening and I've never been happier here, doing this, with you.

Until the end. I miss you. I love you,

Me

I'll do my best to put up some signs for you but I wont be making any photos of it.

I need you now in my heart als a calming factor that will always be there, thank you :)

Today will be my big day, I will abandon my abusers and move on. It will be hard but I won't come back. No more abuse.

Big hug to you for all your support and I wish you well.

I started crying when I read this... I am so so so excited for you guys. You deserve this more than any other people in the world. I am so proud of all that you do. You have helped me through so much over the years and I cannot wait for the book to come out so I can be in another way, closer to you. Something I can hold in my hands... oh wow. Thank you so much for all that you do. For writing this for me. And for never giving up on me. I love you.

Iain, will the book be distributed internationally?

klara said...

I really hope (if I don't win, which I probably won't) I can get the book in some way where I live. It will be available everywhere, will it ?! :O

I just can't wait until Christmas when I'll finally get a camera to be able to take this picture. -_-

Congratulations.
I'm buying one of you books as soon as possible. Maybe, one day if I ever get too old to use a computer, at least I can see the art you and Jon have created in a book.
(That's also why I prefer to buy cd's in person, not online.)

Finding your blog was the turning point as it helped me recover from a trauma, out of depression and into the world.
Gave me hope.
Thank you and good luck.
Please do not disappear
