Sorry to miss you last night at Burbank.

I did catch you earlier at Cal Tech.

Have read the book and really enjoyed it.

Ready for the movie. ;-)

Waiting for the library to buy a copy, Dean.

I'm sure it's a worthwhile read and good luck.

hey there say, cragman...

wow, wonderful success!!!


say, my book does not really sell...

the subject matter is different of course, and it is fiction...

but, i just sent TWO free gifts to two families, just the other day...


1-one man had a head injury and can't talk anymore, and his wife wants
to help get him into ASL (deaf language) (writing is too difficult, but, he can do it, when he needs to really push it) ...


but her house is so silent, and she does not want to lose communication...




2-THEN-- another gal, well, she has a friend that is having tongue surgery,
from having cancer...

and, he won't be able to talk... and, he is so witty and chatty, or, was,
until now...


she is hoping ASL will help him, if he is encouraged to learn...




signing is a hard step for some men, that never needed to...
mom's with kids, might 'take to it' easier... due to all the
things and ways that moms interact with kids...



since my books deal with the main character having
lost his tonguefrom a bull accident,
and dealing with head injuries and seizures, and
having a TWIN sister to 'get him used to the idea' and start
a NEW step into a new way to communicate,
and a way NOT to be ashamed of... though 'different'...
well--
they were both so very happy to learn that SOMEWHERE there
is such a story situation that might HELP open a door to do
some good...


so, we are all praying and hoping, :)
and, will see how it goes...



:)


so, they may not sell, but, they are now getting an open door to
get out into the world and do some good, :)


wow, and, again, i am so happy to see your book doing
good things, out in the world... thank god, :)
