Today my novel The Séance Society entered the world. Heard from many friends and supportive acquaintances. Both my kids called me: my daughter from Rome during her backpacking Grand Tour; my son from college in Burlington where he requested we each get ourselves a glass of Octoberfest ale to toast my book over the phone. Then a lovely dinner with my dear wife at a nice restaurant. Plus I finally snagged that final stop in my book tour which I'd been trying to get in place. All good! A long road indeed to this juncture. Now the novel is a reality and the tour awaits. Onwards!
