Okay. Here's the plan. You want to know if I'm REALLY real? Have your local grammar school bring me in for an author visit. Then you will not only know if I'm real, but you'll get my genuine, personal autograph, too. :smile

Can't afford your plane fair, Verla.  There's accommodation around here, but Moggy's hotel is probably not to your taste.
Thanks for the offer though.  Hugely appreciated.
Any chance of you posting that autograph to us loyal BB'ers? :bow

YOU wouldn't pay the plane fare, Thunderingelephants. The school does. :-)

I believe in you, Verla!!

Just curious though... by any chance, was Stephanie pronouncing your name "V-ear-la"?

That's how we southerners might say it. (Not that I had pronounced it that way for the last, oh, I don't know, five or six years.)  :hiding

 :ohno

That's good for Stephanie, bad for me. Leave it to me to possibly be the ONLY person on these boards to have pronounced it that way, AND to totally tattle on myself in public!!  :lol2

Just another day in the life of me.  :ahh

(Anyone else out there itching to join me in the V-ear-la Kay fan club?)  :neck

ETA: a huge Happy Birthday to Verla!  :cake :phat
If you're having a birthday then you are most definitely real!

See, that's how I know you are real.  Who else would bother to give such simple information?
Incidently, authors don't usually do school visits.  They tend to attend groups in libraries.  Hence: most of the time it's impossible to gain info about such visits and schools would NEVER pay a writer.  My visit is voluntary. Probably why I am completely broke.

At least this vast and vibrant club is free...and completely addictive.

Aha, Thunderingelephants. I think I'm glad I live here in the USA instead of Ireland.

:envy
The scenery is good.  Nightlife: not bad and drink, if you partial is not bad either.  But resources for CHILDREN'S writers are  :toilet.  There is one group meeting per month and I have to travel over one hundred miles for that.  But worse than that: no-one knows about Verla Kay and are baffled when I mention it.  I am trying to spread the word, but it's hard!
