ONE OF THE BIGGEST AUTHORS IN CHILDREN'S LITERATURE CALLED MY EDITOR AND ASKED TO READ THE HEALING SPELL! I have all fingers, toes and eyeballs crossed that he will like the book and want to blurb it. He's one of my all time favorite authors! I heard someone recently call him a Demi-God in the children's lit world. ;-D

Of course, my editor immediately had a copy printed up and bound for him and delivered - the same day. Then I got a personal letter from him over the weekend.

When I heard the news I started crying and dancing around in my pajamas with incredulity and delight and shock and excitement.

The blurb will look fabulous next to the blurb I ALSO received from the wonderful and generous and brilliant other VERY FAMOUS AUTHOR - a.k.a. THE DEMI-GODDESS of children's literature. I love her.

Wow. Wow. Wow. What a journey this novel has had. Seven years in the making . . . and that's just *this* book, not counting all the others I've written and never sold. Never give up. Never.

Feelin' like a kid!
