thank you

The book launch last night was lovely.


And at least one person had a very good time.

I am feeling more than a little overwhelmed. Thanks to all who came, helped get the word out and put up posters.

Thanks especially to the staff at the First Avenue Day Care and Octopus Books. I don't have words to what a fantastic, beautiful and loving job these women did.

The only hard thing was that I didn't get to spend as much time with every single person who came as I would have liked. I love you all.

It was a fantastic event! Laurel commented after hearing you read that she thinks you are a terrific writer . I think she was very touched by your writing and also amused by the family anecdotes.

I brought my aunt the copy you graciously signed last night. She called to tell me that she put it down only to call and tell me she hasn't put it down!

Thanks Laurie. I'll be at the next launch too.

Sincerely,
Sue O'Reilly

Sorry I couldn't make it. We were triple booked last night. Where can I pick up a copy?
