publication day and skype contest


Well, today is the official release date for Ready for Air. It seems unreal, but there you have it. Of course I’ve written about my struggles to get this book out into the world. And yet, here I am, with my first review under my belt. And I want you to know that I couldn’t have done it without all of you in my life, reading this blog, supporting me and sharing your own words, heartbreaks, triumphs. I’m so grateful for you, for this community. Thank you!!

And as a way to say thank you, I want to come to your book club! The University of Minnesota Press is coordinating a Ready for Air Skype Book Club Contest.  For your chance to win one of three Skype book club visits, please e-mail with the subject line “Ready for Air Book Club Contest,” and include a few sentences about why you’d like me visit your book club via Skype (or, if you’re in the Twin Cities, in person). Contest deadline: October 31st.

Thank you again, my friends, for accompanying me on this journey!



  1. Congratulations, Kate! I’m loving the book. So honest and beautiful (and funny…somehow you manage to be funny amid all that trauma). I stayed up too late reading it and took it with me to the beach this weekend. Can’t wait to get back to it!

  2. Yahoo!!! Savour the day. Love the skype book club idea.

  3. Congratulations, Kate! You are an inspiration.

  4. Congratulations kate! So pleased for you!
