Hi Everybody, It’s been a wet July here in northern Wyoming. We’ve gotten lots of rain, and it’s been a pleasure to sit in front of our computers and listen to it pattering on the roof, and watch it drenching the red sandstone cliffs that surround us. Our high temp today was 68 degrees. Perfect weather for reading and writing. We just received word from the American Booksellers Association that booksellers throughout the country have voted and CHILDREN OF THE DAWNLAND, our first book for children, was selected for the Fall 2009 Kid’s Indie Next List, “Inspired Recommendations for Kids from Indie Booksellers” (http://www.indiebound.or/indie-store-finder). We sincerely appreciate the effort that booksellers put into reviewing the book. We know it’s gets harder and harder to find time for such activities. Thank you all. For those who’ve asked, Little Evening Star, the buffalo calf, is doing well. Right this instant, she’s out frolicking in the meadow, running like the wind… Best Regards, Michael and Kathleen
