I just returned from a short West Coast (Portland, OR, Oakland, CA, and Santa Cruz, CA) tour promoting Circus of the Queens: The Fortune-Teller’s Fate. It was a great experience and very successful! My nephew Jon helped with all the things that are now difficult for me to do, like carrying things. A big shout out to him and the others who helped by sponsoring events and inviting people to attend, like Tiffani LeClair, Becky O’Flannagan, Fredi Schilter, Kathy Miller, and Bobbi Todaro. Thank you to all.
In the meantime, I was honored to be a guest blogger several weeks ago for the wonderful and well-known Jane Friedman. I wrote about health and creativity. The article is called How I Used Writing to Survive, and so far it has gotten over 600 FB shares and 15 LI shares.
Amazon has sold out of their copies of my novel at least twice. That tells me we are selling more books than they thought we would. And just this past week I was invited to speak on the same subject, creativity and health, and read from my book at the Woodstock Library Forum in Woodstock, NY. The date has not been pinned down yet, but as soon as it is, I will let you know.
News of the day: Circus of the Queens: The Fortune-Teller’s Fate is now available on Kindle as of today. It’s beautiful! Just wanted to alert those of you who have been waiting.
Happy Holidays to us all! Donatella sends her regards, too, and I’ve been told that whoever reads and finishes her memoir, our novel, and honors her journey, will get a question of the soul answered this Holiday Season!
