  1. My only tidbit is Talli Roland had a Book Launch yesterday that was lots of fun. People wrote interesting posts to help promote the book. If I ever have a book coming out, I'm going to have to be creative like her.

    As Theresa says .. Talli's book launch is a great idea, as is KarenGs BBQ fest, as is Arlee's A - Z Challenge ..

    Cheers .. Hilary

    So you aren't ready to retire on your book earnings yet? Perhaps someday, huh? Maybe Helen will help that along...
