Ways with Words

Just to prove to myself that I really was there yesterday, reading from my beloved All the Time in the World.  It was a really wonderful experience with a small but very attentive audience and I was overwhelmed by their receptiveness to this wee book that I really thought would never get published and that I would never be able to read.   Thank you to Ways with Words and Kay Dunbar for having faith in this, (more than I had) and to Christopher North for his very supportive comments at the beginning.   And more thanks to Cinnamon Press for taking it on at all.

  1. Oh Rebecca – this posting made a huge lump come up in my throat. “All the Time in the World” is a wonderful, moving, real little collection of gems – it’s one I keep on my bedside table. I am not at all surprised, but couldn’t be more happy for you, that it has had such a great reception. Well done on reading and sharing. So wish I could have got there to hear you for myself. xXx

  2. Wow, I had no idea you liked it that much, dear Valerie. Thank you for kind words. My eyes are going misty as I write!
