    Hey my new novel will be published in the fall, I would love it if you found a place for it in your library.

  2. If you would like to donate a copy to the house, we would love to have it to show. Also send me an email, may we can place it in our Online Store!

  3. Sandra Says:

    Will do. My book isn’t launched until the fall, but once it’s passed my beady eye of satisfaction. I will send you a copy. Looking forward to staying with you sometime too. I have followed your progress with interest. Well Done.

  4. Thank you! We look forward to having you here!

    It must be very exciting.

    Bella, my sister-in-law, will be in Northern Virginia next week on a business trip. She may drop in on her day off. Bella has a fondness for historic places and homes.

  14. How wonderful! Please have her call us so we can be here for her to see the inside! You can email me at and I will give you the number.

  15. David Says:

    I’ve forwarded your email address to Bella. She said if you don’t hear from her, she can’t get away for a visit.
