Bethlehem Ghosts

I saw prolific author Katherine Ramsland at a regional writer's conference. I'm pretty sure Katherine never sleeps--she was one of the faculty at the conference, and she asked if I'd seen her new book Bethlehem Ghosts yet. I hadn't, but I was looking forward to it.

"Don't buy it; I'll give you one," she said, then told me that I'm mentioned in the Acknowledgments and quoted in the text, too. She'd already given me a boost by publicly suggesting I should be on the answering end of the Q&A panel instead of asking questions. (Like many writers, I often show a confident "game face," but underneath I'm a contradiction: at once prideful yet simultaneously self-doubting.) So I had a lift in my step as I left the conference, partly thanks to Katherine.

So buy the book, willya? It could be ordered through Moravian Book Shop, and there might be some private sales through Amazon.
