How nice to hear from you. Glad to hear all is moving ahead in full force.
I would love a signed copy, and I accept it only with the verbal handshake that I will in turn buy a copy to give to a like-minded friend or colleague.
Thanks so much,
I sent a book, and although I did not hear from her again, my hunch is that she followed through on her offer.
During our conversation, I mentioned that I had recently completed a long career at USA TODAY. She asked me if I knew the paper’s book critic Bob Minzesheimer, who had written about Encyclopedia. She said to tell him hi, which I did via email. This was his response:
Pls excuse very belatedly response. This got lost in post-vacation backlog, but it’s good to hear that there’s life after usa today. And congratulations on your book. I met Amy long before she became a prolific kids author. she’s a hoot.
And if you’re in NY let me know.
Somehow following up with Bob about my visits to New York fell through the cracks, and it never happened. Now, sadly in a further twist of fate, that’s no longer possible as Bob died at 66 of brain cancer last October 15.
