Mahalo Reading–December 10 in Hawaii! Last Reading of the Year–Thank you!!

Hi Everyone!

I will be reading and chatting on Dec. 10 with the amazing Kate Elliott. It is has been a difficult and heartbreaking year for me in so many ways, but also thrilling and wonderful in others. So,  I want to say mahalo nui loa to everyone. Please come if you can, and if cannot, please know how thankful I am, anyway!

Much love,

Ryka
