My Camino story is one step closer to publication!
After a couple weeks of winging ideas around, the incredible team at Mountaineers Books and I have finalized the title:
Walking to the End of the World: A Thousand Miles on the Camino de Santiago
It’s a lot of words, but it captures perfectly the things that are important to me about this story: the length of the journey, which extends the perception of “the Camino” beyond the Camino Frances; the focus on reaching the ocean (Finisterre is a derivation of the Latin finis terrae, meaning “end of the earth”); and a subtle nod that this is a walk (accessible) and not a hike or trek (scarier words for people like me).
Next stop: choosing illustrations and finalizing a book cover design.
Slowly but steadily, this baby project of mine is getting closer to being in your hands. And I’m feeling like the luckiest writer who ever approached the end of the world.
