I woke up this morning to find that the official review of my latest novel, Dragon Magic, done by Kirkus Reviews was ready for me to read. It is so amazingly wonderful I am just floating on cloud nine. I had to correct a couple of facts in the review, most notably that the dragon hatchings happen every three years not every year, but once that is fixed the review will be published and I can hardly wait. I was really leery about asking for the review as I’ve never been convinced that my books were “real books,” but now I’m glad my publisher encouraged me. I’m still waiting on the review of The Egg That Wouldn’t Hatch, but that should be done really soon. Anyway, my entire day was colored rosy by the review! I tutored at Student Link, mostly helping just one student but we were able to concentrate and get a lot done! I picked up part of my buyer’s club order at Minglement, but I have to wait until next week for my edamame as they were all out. Fortunately I was able to pick up a week’s worth at Thriftway because otherwise, dinners would be pretty empty! Then I spent much of the afternoon working on my puzzle because one of my students had to cancel. I just finished doing Latin with another and my final student will be here in a few minutes. It has been a really nice day!

  1. Thanks, Lydia. I mailed you a hard signed copy last Friday, 2/21. Heaven knows how long it will take to get to you. And I’ll be posting a link to the review once it is published.

  2. Aww, thank you.

    It actually just arrived. That sure is a lot faster than it’s been in the past. Maybe it’s because we’re past the holidays now? I’m not sure, but I can’t wait to read it. šŸ™‚

  3. Thank you Daphne. Much as would love a signed hard copy I am a bit overdone with books here! I will download the kindle version.
