    Some of you know that my husband, Jon Clinch, is the author of FINN, a book that first came out in 2007 and was named one of the best books of the year by The Washington Post, the Christian Science Monitor, and the Chicago Tribune, as well as a Notable Book by the American Library Association.

    So it's been ten years, and he's releasing a 10th-Anniversary Edition,with a lot of cool extras -- an author Q&A, a new FINN short story, and a few other things.......including an intro by Oscar winner, JARED LETO, who's a huge fan! So cool!

    As a mid-30s lady, it's impossible for me to think of Jared Leto as anyone other than Jordan Catalano from My So-Called Life. :smile:

    By the way, if anyone wants a personally signed copy of FINN, here's what to do:

    You can order it directly through PayPal (webmaster@jonclinch.com). Just be sure to include your name, shipping address, and the name you'd like used in the signing. It's $20. (that includes shipping within the US). OR you can send an email to webmaster@jonclinch.com, and he'll work it out with you that way.

    I am freaking obsessed with Jared Leto and his music. Last week I saw that he posted about Finn and mentioned Jon and I did a triple fake because I thought FB was messing with me. Its incredibly cool that Jon is in touch with him and he wrote the intro.

    Hey now, I've always liked Jon but you are right I never would have guessed his Jared Leto connection. If only he could arrange a meeting for me.....

    In other news I hate that I can't go back to my posts and fix stupid spelling errors. I meant triple TAKE, not triple fake. That just sounds dumb.

    Good article, and quite possibly brilliant marketing!

    Really enjoyed the Post article, and have now downloaded Finn onto my iPad...it is next in line to be read! One of the downsides of ebooks...can't get the author's autograph!
