I did send you that text about book two and I love book two even more than book one. It is very rich with details, reality, emotions, and characters plus an unusual subject area – the circus arts, clearly a dying art too.
You might want to see if any Sarasota, FL, outlets might want to sell/distribute your book if that’s possible. Sarasota is the home of performer Nik Wallenda on the tightrope and his entire family of performers.
As I may have said before, it is probably the only remaining place that circus and aerial arts are taught in the public schools and there are several conservatories and schools for circus artists here, as well as the home of John Ringling and all of the B and Bailey circus companies. The bookstores here carry lots of circus theme books.
I think it is very cool that I can ‘see’ your persona come through in reading your books – the magical aspect, the mystical angle, your humor, your perception of the deep ties between 3 generations of women and the different stages of their lives. I’m not done yet, but I had to tell you how wonderful you are as a writer. Keep it up, dear old friend. I’ve been reading the book on the beach sometimes and I laugh out loud at parts of it.
