    Susan, I just (after a long delay) began reading THE WAY OF ALL THE EARTH and am thoroughly enjoying it. It is a wonderful book and I plan to give it to a member of my writing group. Hope you are doing well. Are you stil seeking a publisher for your second book? I am just starting to work on my first full book. Have been sidetracked as my writing group just finished assembling our second group book — working title BOUND TOGETHER LIKE THE GRASSES — after THE MOON ROLLS OUT OF OUR MOUTHS, which has pretty much sold out.
