Hey everyone, I'm sorry to have disappeared on you so abruptly and so long ago! I'm alive and well and it's good things that have kept me from coming on here even though i've been so tempted to pop back in over the last few months.
Steph - I got BOTH your emails. You must have assumed me dead.
I will email you separately about the bears and thanks for letting me know how things were going over here. I can't believe my willpower and not coming over here and living here - especially since the changes!!! NICE JOB, everyone!
A special "HI" to Sherry too - hope life is treating you MUCH BETTER these days!
I've been keeping in touch with TJ on Facebook and that's pretty much the only online addiction I have time for these days.
I was approached by a local publishing house to write a book on open adoption ... so with that and my already full plate of other life stuff and projects and family and other writing projects ... I've been absent here, but very much present in my writing life. It looks like the adoption book will go to print sometime next spring/early summer. I've published a lot of short works already, but not yet a children's book ... and this will be the connection I'm possibly looking for to publish my other biographical works and creative writing. Exciting times around here!!!
I hope everyone is well here and WELCOME to all the newest fans of TJ. Isn't Validation awesome?! I posted it on my Facebook profile and have gotten some great reviews already. I'll email them to TJ when I've collected enough of them.
Well, I'm off to go clean my bathroom - we have a houseful of company arriving tomorrow just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. Much love to you all and I wish I could be here more often! I'll do what I can and if any of you are on Facebook ... look me up! I'm on there with my maiden name and married name: Marie Pezzotta Foote. And yes, TJ is a Facebook "friend" of mine - ha ha ha! You can always email me via Facebook or ... email me at home: firstname.lastname@example.org
. I get those emails every day. As Steph can attest, I may not write back for four months, but I will read what you write, LOL!
