Following on the heels of Goosebottom Books' successful launch at the Book Passage in Corte Madera, we held a launch party in Ukiah where Gretchen Maurer (Mary Tudor, Bloody Mary), Shirin Yim Bridges (Agrippina and the publisher of Goosebottom Books), and I were the authors present. We had a fantastic turn out! It was truly wonderful to see all our friends and families, writing and literature friends in the audience. We presented our dames, signed books, held a raffle where the proceeds went to our public library, and generally, had a very good time.

In November, Gretchen and I did a blog tour with World of Ink Tours, which included an interview on Blogtalkradio.
Then in early December, I finally received the offer of terms from Charlesbridge Publishing for Goldy Luck and the Three Chans which my agent, Karen Grencik, is still negotiating. Sheesh! It takes forever, but looking at all the language requests she's made of Charlesbridge, half of which I don't understand, I'm so glad I have an agent to wade through the legalese.
