Just a month earlier, I was involved in the London Book Fair with a bunch of other authors from the Freepartay group. We needed to have actual books to give out to publishers and agents. So… I had been forced to overcome my childish qualms about dealing with the pitfalls on Createspace, and get my book “Together Again” published.
You see, some years back it had been a nightmare for me trying to get “My Cheeky Angel” published there. Rather than dealing with the situation and learning how to do it right, like any card-carrying techie wuss, I backed off and decided e-books were just fine. Who needed a paperback anyway? They were going out of style in the next twenty years–right? So, no one would even care. (Well – except for my mom, but that’s another story.)
Much to my delight, Norris’s daughter sent me a picture of him holding my book. With his permission, I just had to share.
Thank you so much for the book you sent my dad for his birthday. Dedicating the book to him was just over the top. He got the biggest kick out of you using his green bananas story. He was laughing so hard he had to stop reading. He received the book Monday and has already finished reading it. He said it was a real “barn burner.” I’m sending you a photo I took of him this morning when he was officially 100 years old. I can never thank you enough for making this birthday so special for him.
