You've told us about how you came to help your aunt write this book. In the Acknowledgements at the end Mary Ann mentioned how grateful she was that you stepped in shortly after the manuscript was sold. Was that the first time you read any of it or had you had access the whole time she was writing it?
The first time I read it was right before it was sold. My mother read several of the early versions of the manuscript, but I was busy with babies and tiny children during that time, so I didn't read it until later.

I'm not sure if you're still with us for the weekend but I have another question for you. I know when authors have a new book out they have a lot of different ways to promote them - in person, online, on TV, etc. With your promotions for this very popular book do you have any other experiences like this one? I know authors drop in on events, we even have authors who come here for a week long experience that's a little different than this one. Are there other clubs or activities that last a month or longer?
