Thank you, Long Hair!  Yay to be hearing from another Kentuckian.  What part of the state do you live in? (You can ignore that question if you don't care to answer.) I'm in Lexington.

Long Hair, I hope our paths will cross. I'll be at the Kentucky Book Fair at the Horse Park in November. If you attend, please stop by my table and say hello.

Thank you, Anne, Austen, Marcia, ButterflyGirl, and Nell, for your thoughtful posts.  Blueboarders definitely know how to throw a celebration party!

I'm a little bit late to the "Congratulations!" but that is SO awesome! We've gone to the National Book Festival the last 3 years and my boys love it! We actually don't listen to any authors speak, we spend the whole day moving from line to line so they can get autographs from their favorite authors. But we spend time going through the exhibits on the exhibition floor, so we'll be sure to visit the Kentucky one and see your book!

 :yay :yay :yay

Blueboarders are definitely the bestest!  :thankyou Deb, Chris, and Melody!!

Oh, Deb, if you get a chance, I'd love it if you could snap a couple of pictures of my book and maybe the general background around it and email them to me, since I don't get to go.
