    I just finished reading your book, Emerald Silk, and was very pleased to see you presenting such a positive image of the Gypsies.
    I am a librarian in the Special Collections Dept.of the Cleveland Public Library, and we have one of the largest collections of Gypsy material. In fact, I presented a paper on this at the Gypsy Lore Society Conference in Washington, DC in August, and thus learned a lot about the Gypsies in my preparation.
    Will you be attending any sessions at the Am.Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting to be held in Denver at the end of January, 2009? If so, I would love to meet you at that time.

  2. Hello, Oksana,

    How nice to hear from you! I’m delighted you enjoyed my novel. With every page I strove for accuracy and fairness, and I’m pleased you noticed.

    I envy your easy access to the wealth of info on Gypsies. I would love to attend some sessions at the Midwinter meeting, if allowed to do so, and would also enjoy meeting you in Denver.

    Hi Janet,

  4. Hello, Janet!
    I find your blog so interesting that I will drop it by regularly. I feel that you not only write pretty well, but you also enjoy it. Such enjoyment gets one’s souls trapped and helps to keep alive (and writing…)
    Many thanks for your hopeful contribution!

  5. Thanks for visiting, Alex. I’m glad you’re enjoying my blog, and I’m honored to meet a writer from Argentina. Thank you for letting me know that the Jorge Luis Borges was an Argentine writer and poet. (The quote: “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library” – Jorge Luis Borges)

  6. Great blog. I’ve just started mine so it’s useful to see good examples like this. I’m published, but in non fiction and am currently trying to get a novel accepted, so wonderful to see someone who has done it and is sharing experiences with others.

  7. Hi Janet. You have a great blog and I look forward to visiting it often. Thanks for sharing your tips and tricks and wishing you much success with your writing. Cheers!

  8. hi there, I understand you are new to the neighborhood (we moved here in 1977). Anyway I have retired and am writing my first fiction book. Do you have a critique club in the area?
