New!
Hooray! The History Press is planning to publish my

Kentucky Puzzles: Fun Challenges for Ages 6-106.

The projected release date is January 2014.

I can't compare with Tori's 19 year wait, but I've been trying to find a home for this one for 9 years and it's one of my favorite manuscripts, so I'm really excited.  I hope my experience will provide one more bit of inspiration for those of you who have mss you love and believe in, but are still searching for the right home for. Please don't give up!

Thanks for all the love and support the BlueBoards have given me through the years. Extra big hugs to the mods and admins.   :grouphug2:
