Cancer-free!
Or...The Dragon will be drinking celebratory wine this evening

This afternoon, I had the opportunity to invite an oncologist to Saturday's book signing. Yes, today I handed one of my lovely 4/C postcard/flyers to Dr. Mark Moskowitz of the Florida Cancer Specialists and invited him to my book signing Saturday morning at B&N. He seemed delighted. But why on earth was I hob-nobbing with an oncologist, you ask? Why, to have him inform me that I am still healthy and cancer-free!

Woo-hoo!

I have kicked the butt of Hodgkin's Disease and don't have to do any more of this scanning business until April. Hooray! And anyone who would like to shake my doctor's hand may do so Saturday, Halloween morning, during picture-taking and candy-eating and monster-talking at the Barnes & Noble at 41 and Pine Ridge in Naples. I'm there from 10 a.m. to noon to sign books and hang out with all of you.

Sorry I can't make it on Saturday but I hope you get writer's cramps from signing loads of books!

Congratulations, Sandy! That is awesome news!

I wish I could be there to shake his hand and have you sign my book. Jenni gave me a copy as an early b-day present. I'm already diving in!
Blessings!

Oh Sandy! Isn't that just the nicest news ever to hear your doctor tell you that? Good for you to hear; great too for us to hear you announce it as well! Now, keep on, keeping on!!! Yes -as you can see -I still love using those exclamation points, even though I know you hate that. (The period there was just for you.)

Hi, Jane!
Yes, we'll miss you Saturday, but we'll take plenty of pictures to share all over the place. :) When my hand starts to hurt, I'll think of your little blessing here...
Mwuahahahahaha.

Mags,
I'm stoked to hear you have the second book now. Have you set it on the shelf next to Book 1? Don't they look cool? Happy Birthday Early!

Jeni,
Ah, the oh-so-ever-present exclamation point. You, know, he has his place. IN HELL! (I'm totally teasing you.) I had to laugh that you remember my lecture about them. I wonder how many appear in Choices Meant for Kings...
Probably less than ellipses. I'm addicted to the ellipsis. I channel Charlotte Bronte and start flinging ellipses around...
He he he.
(I love her.)
