I agree. Good and I'd like to add that it's useful a lot. At least for me. (I'm still a beginner, I'm afraid) :)

Jon, thanks for your lists. I usually find at least a couple that any writer at any point in the journey will find useful and educational.
So, again, thank you.

I have another new great grandchild. Different mother. I figure I can wait a year or two, but it looks like I'll be ordering more of your book/mug/pen offer. Will it still be available? Is it now?

Thanks!

Hi Deanna,

Lovely to hear from you. Congratulations on your latest grandchild.

Sadly, I don't have any books available in print at the moment, but I'm working on it.

Take care :)
