     Good morning readers!
     Albin's Letters is racking up a few sales and the Kindle version seems to be very popular. I still have a long way to go before I feel comfortable calling myself "author".
     I was thrilled to see so many friends and relatives at the Launch party given by my kids on the 19th. Nancy and Teri did an outstanding job of staging the event at the Port Orchard Yacht Club. If my children learned nothing else when they were growing up they learned how to party.
     Charlie Rook was on hand to greet old and new friends and you couldn't wipe the smile off his face as he inched his wheelchair around the room.The only thing missing was the rest of our grandkids and great grandkids.
     Some of our friends said they ordered their copies from amazon.com although now that Barnes & Noble have the book in their catalog it can be ordered from them although it takes a bit longer for delivery.
     Old friends, Bill and Janice Lounsbery said Bill's book has been published and will soon be available. I'll post the title in my next message. It seems like people all over the area are getting books into print. Of course our most famous local author, Debbie Macomber, is at the top of the romance best seller's list  and now has a series on the Hallmark Channel every Saturday night. Look for the Cedar Cove dramas glittering across your screen every week.
    And for all of you who loved the story of Albin and Hilda and want to know what happens next in the lives of these two pioneer Finns in America at the turn of the last century, stay tuned. The sequel is well under way!
