You are welcome, Karen. I would like to pass the word along each time, but I can never just copy the announcement. I very much appreciate what you have done with Writers Night Out. I heard there was a huge crowd last Friday night. Don't give up on me. I very much want to be there but I have not yet been able to get myself there. That is my goal, for sure, to get myself back out among my writing friends.

Congratulations on all of your achievements. I feel sure I will hear about you with a new book coming out soon.
