Hi book friends!  I have not been on here for awhile, because I have been rushed off my feet going to the many book signings and readings from January to now.  I will keep you posted better since my schedule is more under control!

Hello book friends!  Just to let you know that I am now behind the scenes working with the publishing company to get the book spread viral.  This includes, of course, social media marketing that reaches to the public on-line, several distribution centers, and connections to not only Barnes and Noble and Amazon, but also directly to independent bookstores, preschools and daycares nationwide.  Books a Million fans hold tight as the publishing company will get the book connected with them soon.  Also, I have had many, many book signings, and I may be traveling to California to one either in the Burbank or Santa Barbara area.

Keep watching for further updates on this.  I want to thank all the many supporters of my book so far.  There is much more to be done before the book or myself are a household name!
