THE LILY BRAND has been sighted!!!! Really! And not by me either! (For booksightings by authors might be ascribed to wishful thinking or hallucinations. *g*) A friend of mine saw the book in a bookshop — probably in New York — and because I hadn’t told her that she is prominently mentioned in the acknowledgments, she stood in said bookshop and bawled into the book for a bit. Hehe. *ggg* (I hope you’ve noticed the alliteration.) She got her “revenge” though: when I read her note, I had tears in my eyes — while sitting in my office. And since then I’ve been running around whistling. Gosh, I’m so, so, so happy!
