Ken,

Bwah ha ha!!!! There IS no calm in my life! Quite the opposite! I just no longer have that job! But thank you!

If you ever do read Threads, be sure to let me know what you think, okay?

Now, I'll make absolutely sure to read it AND I'll let you know what I think!

Stay well (and strong!). Things WILL get better for you!

Hey, cool, Ken! Let's be friends!

By the way, you can read the reviews on Amazon.

And if anyone is a Tudorphile, I created a website with about 20 pages devoted to Anne Boleyn at http://www.nellgavin.com.

By the way, all you authors: My advice is to build your web site around your subject matter, rather than yourself. Create a different page for every aspect of your historical era, and load the code with META tags, including misspellings (for instance, I'm the queen of pulling in hits from keywords "Ann Berlin" and "Anne Boylen"). If you're a new author, probably no one is looking for you, but you'll pull in all kinds of traffic by dangling your subject matter in front of students and people who are already interested in whatever you've written about. More on that later.

Once a product manager, always a product manager, eh?

Hi Nell

Just to let you know that I have ordered 'Threads' from Amazon UK (6 reviews, all of them good!).

I'll let you know what I think even though Anne Boleyn lived in a period a bit later than my favourite 13th Century!

Really hope that you have found that 'calm' you are looking for!

Ken
