    Few authors have any inkling of how difficult it is in any era, under any circumstances, it is to get attention for their books. Best thing to do, if you enjoy making them, is to go boldly forth and not worry about it. Just do what you have to do

      Thanks Margaret! These stories are just so fun to write. Hopefully the creativity and sense of play can be found in my book – I’d hate for it to become one of those books you were talking about when you lamented the state of books in the modern era ; )
