I did love

. . . your responses to the Gratitude Journal post. Thank you, thank you, and also I love you.

I'm off to Denver tomorrow morning for a few days to participate in the Mountains and Plains booksellers trade show. The University of Utah Press is republishing CHARLOTTE'S ROSE, and so I'll be at the booth, doing a little promotion dance. I'll also be hanging out with Anne and Jenny from TKE, and it will be good times.

Truthfully, I'm so glad Charlotte gets a second chance. It's a book I'm really proud of, probably because it was just soooooo hard to write. Historical fiction is hard to write, you guys. YOU HAVE TO DO RESEARCH AND STUFF, which is v. exhausting for a lazy writer like me.

I'll be back on Monday. Enjoy the weekend.

Hurrah for U of U Press! I loved CHARLOTTE'S ROSE and it deserves another go around.

What an incredible writing career you're having, Ann.
It's all good.

Look at the U of U Press, being righteous and perspicacious and smart like that, republishing your swell book. So pleased for you!

On a related note: could there be video of the little promotion dance? I am sure that it would sell you more books, were the video to go viral, a feat I'm sure your friends and readers would all be glad to do their part to make happen.

Go Team Ann! Go go go!

We love Charlotte at our house, too. Love her.

(My word-veri is a real word. Chive. I don't think that's ever happened. And right this minute, I want a baked potato. With Butter. And sour cream. And... pepper.)
