Clayton and Jen are my brother and sister-in-law, and the editor, Barb, is Jen's mom.  We got to have a peek at Thanksgiving, and I'm looking forward to getting my own copy at Christmas.  If you live in the Winnipeg area, go check out the launch and readings this Thursday.  I wish I could.

Just home from the book launch - great readings and great chocolate cake too. They didn't give me a name tag as the mother and mother-in-law of authors - go figure!
