Today we had a customer call us in regards to a book they heard you were publishing. I think she's looking for the memoir that you read a part of at the Master Workshop Reading at the river's end awhile back. She didn't have the exact title.
I found an article on Oswego County Today about the anthology of stories about caring for special needs children & the article included your e-mail, so I figured it'd be the easiest way to get an answer! Is there a release date on either of the books you've been working on so I can pass more information onto the customer?
Also, would you mind if I shared a link to the article on Oswego County Today via our Facebook page? I think it's a wonderful & incredible idea & look forward to reading it & would like to spread the word!
Thank you so much your help!

Imagine my excitement reading this email. There is somebody out there who is actively looking for my book in bookstores so that they can buy it. OH MY !!! I don't know who this person is, but I can say they are my biggest fan right now. That was the biggest complement that I could have received, and if I ever had any quetions as to wether or not to publish such a personal story, those fears are now gone. People need to hear it. People out there are suffering, and want to connect with somebody else who has gone through similar fates. I must pubish it!
As I said before I am hoping to have the anthology available for distrubution by December, 2011. (What a great Christmas present that would make for somebody!) I had advertised the project as From Caring To Sharing. When the book goes to print the title will be Sometimes The Wind Blows Sideways: Our Lives With a Special Needs Child.
As for my memoir, editing a 50,000 word book takes a lot of time and patience. But do not fear, I am working deligently on it and will keep everyone posted as to the progression of the project and you will be the first to know when it will be ready for publication.
In the meantime, take a moment to visit the wonderful RiversEnd Bookstore, either online or in person. They offer a wide selection of books in a comfortable, inviting atmosphere. Plus the staff are among the nicest people you will ever meet. Oh, and did I mention that they offered to host a book launching party when my book is released? I love that place !!!
