If I’ve been silent recently, it’s been for good reason … s.  Mid-December, I cruised through the Caribbean … Puerto Rico, St. Martin, and more … with The Nation magazine.  This meant I combined intellectual and political pursuits with snorkelling … I’m sure you can appreciate that this was an excellent mix for MOI!  After the cruise, I spent two days in New York City dashing from store to store with Lost and Found in London in hand.  Unlike Toronto, the response from the independent bookstores was mildly luke warm, if you get my point.  Barnes and Noble on the other hand was quite welcoming and I’ll report on that later.  It was a great way to BE in NYC … as an author promoting her latest accomplishment.  And then, Christmas with my lawyer/writer brother and part of his family in Toronto, plus my Mum.  It was a good month all in all!  Best of the season to my readers!
