    Hi Katie,
    My middle-grade novel, Elizabeth’s Landing, staring sea turtles just came out, so I didn’t think I had anything else to say about them. Your video has my gears turning! Thanks! Sharing this video on my FB Author page!
    Thanks for all you do.

      That’s fantastic! I love reading this comment, Katy…thanks for writing. And btw, you were mentioned in last week’s podcast (I think it was last week!)

        Just heard the gratitude segment. Winged wishes of thanks to the universe that all your family escaped unhurt from the accidents. The gratitude thing goes both ways for sure. You are sooo generous. We only make it as artists when we support each other, and you’re an ace. My kids book author friend, Ginny Rorby, will be running a blog piece I wrote in a few weeks on what it is to be a new author, launching a first book, and how to give back. Such opportunities to grow. Peace and hugs Ms. Katie.
        BTW, Katy Pye is not a pen name–another parentoid blessing!
