TODAY IS BE NICE TO MARGARET DAY; please mark it on your calendars, because my “new” life (which usually only Jack the Demon Cat bears witness to) is now flapping in the breeze. Out there. Appearing in a bookstore near you.
Yes, today is February 23, 2011: publication day for “And I Shall Have Some Peace There,” the memoir I started writing early in 2009, handed in that fall, and have watched gestate slowly since.
Andre Jordan, doodler supreme, author, and a pretty great friend, too, created this doodle (and this one, remember?) about my transition from corporate city type, to She Who Lives in the Woods. He even plays a part in the book.
To those of you who have been around awhile, thanks for all your support; to new faces, so glad to meet you. Have you bought a copy yet? Happy to help with that. :)
