  1. Thank you for wanting to be there, Sue! I’m sure we’ll meet soon – at Polyverse, for example!

    (Must get back to you about Book Club readings too – haven’t forgotten – just haven’t got to it yet….) x

  2. Why does everything happen at once? I love the Troubadour and would have loved to come see you read, but I already have 2 things booked for that night. Ugh. Enjoy it, though!
