Congratulations Nori On Your Book!
That's right, Haines own Nori Nash (well, her parents and siblings still live here, and she is a Haines High grad.. I think that counts) otherwise known as Avon romance author Lenora Bell, has just published How the Duke was Won, a real bodice ripper, to great critical acclaim-- including this review from her elderly aunt Carol, whose husband is in the Pioneer Home in Sitka: "It made me miss Roy." I'm waiting until The Babbling Book store here in Haines has some in, so I haven't read it yet, but here are all the details from Nori's blog.
( I have not replaced my limping laptop yet either, and my dad doesn't have internet at his farm anyway-- really-- so you won't hear from me again here until I return from a visit to NY on May 12. )
