Further Book Adventures
I made it through my first month of book adventures (12 appearances in 18 days) and wow, what a delight it was to see so many new AND old faces. There is a good spirit of accomplishment out there, amongst all you creatives. Book appearances are like playing gigs...you have to get yourself up and perform well, regardless of having large or small audiences. A valuable lesson. This is a very rewarding time and I thank and respect each of you. The BMI show was a gas too. Excellent music and great to see the newly married Hanna Bolte Pantle! I will have more exciting news to announce shortly about some book partnerships and many more activities for 2004, so see you down the show/book/seminar trail. Donít forget the Xmas Special...it will be fun!
