GLOW!

Glow is now available in bookstores! Your friendly independent retailer, with their funky music, interesting booksellers and cozy corners ought to have a few copies on hand. Barnes and Noble is doing a lovely floor display, I'm told. I have to go check it out. I know Borders is also excited about the book, so I hope to hear they're showing it off too! And if you're the ordering kind, Amazon is stocking it, quite naturally!

Remember to write me about it after you read it. Your words may very well turn up in this blog, (anonymous and with your permission!)

FIRST bit of fan mail for GLOW!

See this lovely note from Terra, after she read the first 20 pages of GLOW:

I almost never buy books brand new, one reason because I generally give them away when im done. A book is somebody's story, and stories are meant to be shared... there's something about reading a book that other people have read. Now that im completely off subject .. I just wanted to say im so looking toward to it coming out and that im actually going to go and buy a copy. I can't wait to finish it :)

How true that stories are meant to be shared. That is certainly why I write. I love the idea of words and thoughts of mine being whispered into readers' ears as they cozy up to my book in darkened bedrooms, or comfy armchairs, in towns I've never heard of, living lives I've never imagined. All those people are sharing in the experience of my book! It's a community of strangers, all turning over my thoughts in their minds. This is a magical idea, and I'm the luckiest woman in the world that I get to do this for a living. So yes, Terra, please do buy my book so I can keep writing more stories, but also, please share it, as much as you like!
