Hi for 2010!
Hope the Landsdowne, Virginia project worked out for you - a great way for parents and children to stay together.
I will be purchasing Tunde from B&N or Amazon.
Sounds like the perfect story for a child I know.

Thanks for you comment. My only advice is that writing/publishing your story is only half of the journey; marketing is the other half, so promote yourself everywhere - online and in person!
