  1. Hello Daphne:

    I enjoyed chatting with you at Chapters a few days ago. Liked that you were given to engaging in conversation. Not people are.

    I’ve started reading Jacob’s Landing as you suggested before giving to my friend Sheilagh Simpson in Vancouver on Friday. I learned that Sheilagh’s mother was Christie Harris. She lived on the west coast and wrote books ‘for youth’, Sheilagh said.

    I thought after that more people might stop at a stand like yours if the author stood up and looked and smiled at a person who might be enticed to stop if helped to do that with a friendly smile and look, Maybe even ask those that might seem receptive to a question if they like to read – not too tough a question.

    Another good book on writing is The Elements of Style by Strunk and White.

    Okay, take care…Eric Jorden
