  1. Excellent press release! I'm intrigued.

  2. How exciting, Wendy. And a podcast! Just think, I will be able to listen on my iPod while I'm walking the dogs and then return inspired and ready to write.

  3. Pleased the press release worked for you Karen. Like you I believe books - and writing - can change lives. w

    My imagination is charged now, Boots, with the thought of you striding out with your dogs listening to my sometimes odd thoughts about writing. wx
