Just had to add a ps after I read a bit more about you and going into senior homes. Have you heard about the book "Lavender Ladies?" It is a book espcecially for elders. The founder and it's idea is so heart-warming. You may want to check it out at www.ageless-sages.com. If you do, tell Natalie... more

Hi Marilyn,
Thanks so much for the kind comment.
Your bookstore sounds great. I'd love to check it out if ever I'm in Ontario.
Comment by Gregory Synstelien on 3/7/2008 at 2:10 PM:
Hi Marilyn,

Thanks for the wonderful comments about my work. I'm hoping to somehow get published one of these days. Not real sure how to go about it... but then, I'm just beginning my investigations. Any and all advice is welcome. Thank you again. Gregory
Comment by Maggie Summers on 3/2/2008 at 9:48 PM:

Thanks so much for your warm comments about my work. I completely understand your folly, I lived in Ontario, Canada for 20 years and this past year they have been hit with a really nasty winter that hasn't let up. I too hope for spring as soon as possible!
Comment by Heather Elia on 2/29/2008 at 9:52 AM:
Very nice website. If we are ever in the Toronto are, we will stop by the store. (We live in central NY, so it's not out of the question. We went to Niagara Falls last summer & stayed on the Canadian side.)
Comment by Marie Boyum on 2/27/2008 at 1:42 PM:
Oh well, you never know- we do like to travel...
Stay warm!
Comment by LInda Silvestri on 2/27/2008 at 12:51 PM:
Marilyn, Thanks so much for your encouraging and positive comments about my work. How wonderful to have your own children's bookstore! A dream job, and kudos to you for all your good work.
Comment by Marie Boyum on 2/26/2008 at 12:28 PM:
Canada is nice too! I was there last year. What part of Canada?
If things work the way I have in my fantasy world, we'll be moving to Vermont and I can take that jog up to see your shop. It really isn't even that far from Wisconsin, depending on where you are.
Keep in touch!

Hi Marilyn
Thanks for the lovely compliment!
The work you are doing promoting reading and books is admirable. Well done! Where is your shop?

Comment by Marie Boyum on 2/25/2008 at 4:52 PM:
Dear Marney:
Thank you for the nice comment! I am working hard to find the right balance in my writing and marketing that helps promote a lifelong love of books, not only to children but also adults. If we do not keep adults modeling good reading habits, the children will not follow. <... more

Thank so you Marilyn.
Sounds like you have a great programs in your bookstore, I love to read with children and books has always been a very important part of our household (we are all big readers).

Comment by Shea Darian on 2/18/2008 at 6:00 PM:
Marilyn, Thanks so much for your encouragment! I love it that you are going into seniors homes to read - what a gift to those fortunate enough to receive it, and for you to have the opportunity to share such tender moments. Shea

I'll put the ARC in the mail tomorrow, Marilyn.
Comment by Judith (Judy) Mammay on 2/18/2008 at 1:49 PM:
Nope, don't do the beach scene very often, Marilyn, although it would be easy enough to do, since I live ten minutes from the beach in Florida. I decided before I retired that I needed a second career and decided on writing for children, since I had a few things I wanted them to know. In addition, I... more
Comment by Judith (Judy) Mammay on 2/18/2008 at 12:17 PM:
Thanks for the comment, Marilyn. KNOWING JOSEPH will be released within the next month or two. Good work on teaching the seminars...wish I lived close enough to help out. Kids NEED to read...it opens so many doors for them. And hopefully what I write will help some of them in some way that is impo... more

Hi Marilyn...

Koda's my shadow and I don't know what I would do without him. Moses wouldn't be spoiled would he? grin... I think Poms are made for spoilin' and Koda is proof of that...grin...

Happy Writing...Brenda

Congrats on being a new "Grandma!" Puppies sure take a lot out of you!
I am sorry to hear about your experience losing a baby. To loose a child whether infant (or any age) is probably on of the most difficult things a person can go through. I appreciate your heart - to put t... more

Hi Marilyn!
Thank you for the nice compliment.
"Angel Eyes" and "An Angel's First Job" are not in print yet- You will be able to get "Angel Eyes" (Guardian Angel Publishing) this summer -hopefully early.
And I just heard from the publisher that they think (Dragonfly Publishing) ... more
Comment by John Steven Gurney on 2/15/2008 at 9:42 AM:
sounds like a noble eneadvor. I give a fair number of presentations every year, and I try to focus on how the text and the illustrations support each other in a book. So please, if you ever have the opportunity to bring any presenters up from Vermont, keep me in mind.
