Greetings! Tehani here again. I'm on a roll with these updates; I haven't had much presence digitally via newsletters, etc as I have been SO committed to working out in the field that I haven't had much time to work at the office (what a conundrum!). It's a good conundrum and a blessing that I have had such an overwhelming flood of enjoyable work that I love so much!
It has come to our attention that SaRREAL VISIONS: Reflections & Journeys by Jennifer Tehani Sarreal (yours truly) and Josef S. Sarreal (my father) is available as an e-book on Google! Yes, it is true! It is news to us (particularly me!).
As I own the copyright on the book, I have to look into where the purchases are coming from and WHY I was never informed that my book was available as an e-book. Hmm. We had new copies of our books available on Amazon for many years before discontinuing it, but was never notified and had never authorized a digital version. It was one of my goals to have a digital format for the book available within the next year on my website, but it looks like it exists!
Is this a serendipitous unexpected Father's Day gift to my father? Perhaps. I'd love to see where the money is going. We are still working on getting a digital version set up and ready for purchase at Amazon.com, but in the interim we have hard copies still available for sale and Google seems to already have it available for everyone digitally. There is a watermark on each sample page of the Google version, mentioning a copyright exists, but it never mentions the copyright belongs to yours truly (hmm).
In any case, I'll be sending an email to Google tonight and getting to the bottom of this. They may have just done the digital work for me (yay!). We'll see. Until I have it all straightened out, feel free to check out their e-book version of our book (simply Google my name with my father's and it should pop up) and connect with us directly on our contact page if you'd like a hardcopy of the book. Thank you for supporting independent artists!
Have a beautiful Father's Day everyone! It looks like I stumbled upon a surprise gift for my father and me to share together right before this wonderful holiday in honor of all the amazing dads out there (like mine!). I can't wait to have our book available for you all again on Amazon but sooo very grateful that a digital version seems to already exist with Google (and as I own the copyright, Google may have done all the work for us!). Double whammy. We will see :) Whatever the case may be, I am so glad to know it is available in digital format. YAY!
Enjoy your Father's Day! xo T. :)
