Sunny and mild
If you should happen to wander past a bookstore and go inside . . .
If you should then happen to see a book with a lovely cover entitled Simple Pleasures of the Kitchen, edited by Susannah Seton and published by Conari Press . . .
If you should happen to purchase that book . . .
And then read that book . . .
There are several essays in the book by Christiane Van de Velde . . .
And that’s ME!!! :)
Yes, that’s one of the other names under which I publish, in honor of two of my ancestors.
Copies of the book arrived yesterday (along with payment). The book is truly lovely and it’s so exciting to hold it in my hand. Somehow, the thrill of picking up the first printed copy of your work never diminishes – each “first” copy is equally exciting. What’s even better is that it’s a warm, loving volume that I can read and enjoy, not just have sitting on my shelf because my work’s included in it.
Off to write a note to the editor, and then back to the next polish of Glam Hearts . . .
Lots more to say, but that’s what’s important for now.
