Love letters

Hi, Brian.
I just got some good news this morning. Getting Rid of Rosie came out in Germany in hardcover and has already sold through! Hurray for voracious German readers!
Cheers,
Lynda Simmons

Read a review of Getting Rid of Rosie here. Lynda will be guest speaker at How to Build Your Story on Oct 29 in Toronto (details here) and on Jan 28 in Newmarket (details here).


Dear Brian,
I have some good news to share and I owe it partly to you, since I found the courage to start writing in English when I went to one of your writing workshops.

A few of my poems have been published in the magazine Pink Panther (see, pages 18 and 46 of current issue). It is really a great feeling to be recognized this way and I had an immediate urge to share the news with some of my friends, you included.

I know you are so supportive to new writers and I want to thank you for that. It's a beautiful thing to do.
All the best,
Vesna

 Hi Brian,
I am happy to inform you that I now have an agent for my collection of short stories, Qala Academy, and that we are undergoing revisions on my manuscript.

I really want to thank you for your How to Get Published Workshop last winter - the advice I received there was invaluable and it really helped me during the querying process.

Thank you so much and hope everything is well with you.
Regards,
Tanaz Bhathena
