    Hello Delores! :)

    I was speaking with one of my clients this morning, Chris Curry (So You Want To Be A Star), and he mentioned attending an affair last night, which was none other than your First Annual Self-Published/Small Press Awards (SPA) Banquet!

    Sounds like you all had a wonderful time!

    Congratulations!

    :heart:

    Hey Destee! You are so right, we have a wonderful event on Friday, May 3, 2002. And Chris made it even better. He has a voice that is all that, and a personality to match. On Saturday, I attended the BlackBoard Reception in Manhattan, and the word had traveled to the BEA about our SPA affair. I'm so pleased with the way everything turned out. And thanks for letting me know about Chris being your client. I plan to contact him about some contacts for my granddaughter, who's an entertainer. Blessings~!
