Now for a quick announcment.....

We have been waiting for so long. (And when I say we I mean me, but feel free to take a deep breath if you had been holding it.)

The wait is over. And had the wonderful unsuspecting passersby at the Woodland Hills Marriott known the significance of the wait finally being over, they would have been less perplexed by the sight - and sound - of a frantic brown girl sitting on a low brick wall, with what looked like a book clutched tight to her chest screaming repeatedly at the top of her lungs, “OHMYGOD!” until the back of her throat felt raw and useless.

This was my reaction to holding Lorraine and James in my hand for the very first time. It was a feeling loosely akin to what I felt like on the day that little-man and baby-girl were born. Pure magic.

Lorraine and James is here.

Immediately after all of the screaming, I thanked every writer who sent in a story to our little unknown literary project and held enough trust in their hearts to let us handle their most valuable works. But…..alas none of you were there to hear my tiny, choked offering and so here in front of god and all of mankind I say, thank you. Really.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you.
