Well I'm thrilled to be able to purchase your first, but certainly not your last book.

That said, I'm sitting here thinking about the beautiful portrait of Mercedes and there are tears Kevin. Oh you've shown us all sides of your city. Thank you for sharing her with us. God bless her.

Petrea said...

Kevin, I'm thrilled for you. This is such a big deal. Congratulations.

You did Mercedes a great service, as you've done for many others.

Petrea said...

So, now, um, you could be a little more clear about where we can pre-order our copy. Please.

Lincoln Castricone said...

Ted and Lori said...

Yes, where do we order these? And I agree with Virginia about Mercedes (and the many others)

Virginia said...

Petrea's right. We can't throw money at you without an address K! It will be a late birthday present pour moi.

Very sorry to hear about Mercedes. Virgina and Petrea both said it better than I ever could.

Virginia said...

Now you're talkin' . I'm promoting this book on my blog now. Make a million and take me back to Paris. That works for me.
