Update To My Last Update!

Hey!  I hope this finds you all well. I'm loving this Long Island weather- anxiously awaiting spring, but not complaining about how mild it's been.

I'm also looking forward to spring for a few other reasons- I wanted to give a little notice on a few events coming soon.

Saturday March 31 at 2:00 I will be at the Riverhead Free Library.  I'll talk about the book and answer questions.  I hope I'll see some old friends there and meet some new ones.  Registration is opening February 19 on the Riverhead Library website http://www.riverheadlibrary.org/ It should be fun!

I will be at at the Spring Book Fair with the LIAG (Long Island Authors Group) at Martha Clara Vineyards on Sunday April 22, 2012. Come on down and you'll have a chance to meet 20 or so other local authors  as well as visit with me.  More details are coming soon- but I am so excited about this! Martha Clara is located in Riverhead, NY.  http://www.marthaclaravineyards.com/

The highlight, I'm sure, will be to watch me sign books after a glass or two of wine!  It'll be fun !

I know some people haven't signed up for notifies on this blog (and my other at http://www.homeschoolerbyaccident.blogspot.com ) because the process is limited to a few profiles, but now you can sign up with an email address! Yeah!  So please do so (don't be shy!) and if you would, please forward this email to other people you think would enjoy this or my homeschooling blog.

Also if you missed the Blogtalk radio show-  you can catch it here-  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/jennifer-walker/2012/01/04/a-cup-of-coffee-and-a-good-book  See if you can count how many times I say 'ummmmmm' especially in the first 5 minutes! After the initial terror, I think the rest went ok.  Let me know what you think.

I'm trying really hard to get the sequel to 'Death Is  A Relative Thing' out- so I apolgize for not updating more regularly.  I will though as soon as I can.  Hope to see some of you at the events.  Thanks so much   Holly
