Upon entering the store, however, I was met with a great…

Tonight I had my signing at Pinetree Chapters in Coquitlam, and I was welcomed in a way that made me feel like I was home. Linda, the manager, met me at a table that was already set up with copies of Whale Song and a sign announcing my book signing.
The staff was all very friendly. Many of them came over to the table and asked about all three of my titles. Caitlin and Pali rang in my sales until closing time. Earlier, I witnessed Pali making an elastic attack…

There is one thing that I have no tolerance for and that is anyone that harms or attempts to harm a child. Recently there was a girl who was found after being missing for nearly a year.

This may be the place to ask about website hits. I launched my site on March 12, 2007. Within the first 80 days, I received 10,059 hits from people in 25 countries.
So far in June, I'm averaging just over 200 hits a day. Is this reasonable? It seems like a lot, but truthfully, I don't have a clue.
