From our lips to Heaven’s ears

The cast wishes our scribe’s much-missed sister a very happy birthday in heaven. RIP Carolyn Kucsera.
We’re sorry book 5 didn’t publish on your birthday.
Please stop giving Auntie Sovvan ideas. She’s running amock doing cool things and egging on other characters and generally making it hard for our scribe to end the book.
If you could take her aside next time my Papa’s guardian angel drags her back to Heaven and have a quiet word with her, I and the rest of the cast would be forever grateful.
