Hi again...
Tue Nov 16, 2021 4:11

Bob, it is very nice to hear from you. Thank you for kind words and an invitation to lunch. I shall have to scout out the possibilities with a little more consideration, perhaps less scrutiny.

Covid is still a threat from time to time though in this location we seem to be less exposed, possibly because of the lower population and also our limited social connections.
but we have friends who are hospitalized and very worried. It is surely unpredictable and not something to fool around with.

I am disappointed that the book is slower coming out than originally planned. I work with a small local publisher which has been very good to me over the years but they have numerous obligations and so my book keeps getting set aside a little as it is not the source of their 'bread and butter,' so to speak. It is not their fault. They are loyal and are trying to keep my expenses down as well.

So it looks like February or March is a somewhat reliable expectation. I hope it will be something that will stir up some discussions that are lively for everyone. I'd be happy to send you a preview chapter of your choice if you have a long winter ahead of you. It's been pretty quiet for a while.

Delighted to hear from you. Thank you. Be careful with your health as it does not seem to be over yet.

Best regards, Joyce

          Hello there, Sarah I think life's concerns out there have kept us all involved elsewhere with all that is going on in this mixed-up world. My book is being delayed a little but can't be helped as... more

        Joyce, I hate to hear about another delay, but understand about the small, local publisher... having been there, done that for many years. Sometimes things just happen... Have you queried the publisher... more
