A grand day out





I gave my 10 THINGS EVERY WRITER SHOULD KNOW talk at Cinnaminson Library this morning. I had a great time. A young lad in the audience asked if he could review my book. I hope he likes it.

In the afternoon, I joined my friends, Jim 'JJ' Lair, Alice 'JB' DiNizo, E. F. Watkins, Helen Henderson and Walt Ecklof for a New Jersey Authors' Network panel/Q&A, From Thoughts to Print: Getting Published in the 21st Century. We had a decent turnout and some great questions from the audience. I'm looking forward to giving my 10 THINGS... talk there next month (March 7th).

Best of all though, when I got home, one of my autistic daughters made her dear old dad a lovely cup of tea in my 'I are a writer!' mug. I don't know which of us was more proud.

She made you a cup of tea? Oh, this is wonderful! She is thinking of you and wanting to make you happy. Doesn't this class as a major breakthrough? In any event, she is showing you how much she loves you.

That would be nice, but I think Senior Management was behind the idea (she supervised the whole procedure). It still made my day though :)

Sounds like a perfect day, Jon. That's wonderful that a young boy asked to review the book. That's the way to get it around, and so nice that he showed that much interest!

Glad it rounded out so beautifully with your daughter too. :)

She looked so pleased with herself when she poured the milk in without spilling anything :)
