I've figured it out, this strange, slightly sad and lost feeling I've had in the quiet shallows of the week that has passed since release day. It's empty nest syndrome! My book has left home. But, she's finding her way into the homes of other people, and the nervous euphoria I feel about that is definitely overpowering the empty nest stuff. I've had a very nice review, and heaps of very nice text messages, photos and emails from people who are reading it and liking it. I assume the ones who don't like it aren't telling me, which is also nice. You others, keep 'em coming. My appetite for niceness knows no bounds. This photo is my nephew doing a happy dance in Dymocks for me. I will give a free copy of DTTS to anyone who sends me a copycat shot! Also - this story is pertinent.
