CONGRATULATIONS, Kimberley, on your new novel!

And it is exciting to realize that SignWriting is a part of the plot of the novel - wow - I am really looking forward to reading it -

I just ordered two copies of your book online - I am very impressed with the Print on Demand features of the Harvard Book Store Online -

Thank you for posting this message to the SignWriting List…

I will inform my Facebook and Twitter followers too -

Val ;-)
