I'm SO glad you recorded this...

...and put it up on your site! I have attended events, so already know how wonderful they can be, and this was one I missed. I was alerted by an author/editor I know and am glad I took the time to listen. The information was invaluable; I enjoyed every word! Thank you SO much for offering this and the many other things you do :) :Donna
