Teacher knows best




Going through my daughters' schoolbags this morning, I came across a note from one of their teachers. Dated yesterday, it read, 'My son is reading your book and loves it. As soon as he is finished it'll be my turn.'

My week may not have started out too well - I scheduled my third 'slash 'n stitch' dental operation within nine months - but it sure ended on a high note

It certainly beats the notes I used to get from my old teachers, or my old gran for that matter ;)

;3 In some ways, my old gran (the one on Mom's side, not Dad's side, who was a writer for a local paper in Oregon) was a lot like yours. Figuratively, ayway.

I'm sure the quote from your review on the back page helped set the lad's expectations :)

Ooof, sorry to hear about the dental work, but how wonderful about your book! That's **wonderful**, knowing you have readers out there in the wild, who are enjoying your story just as you intended.

Thanks, Francesca :) The actual dental work isn't so bad, it's the face swelling in the days after and a fortnight of saltwater rinses I'm not looking forward to.
