What an absolute pleasure to hear from you. I'm so glad you reached out. I had a quick look around and it appears that the book is temporarily out of stock in our area until the next shipment arrives. I'm guessing this only happened due to the recent nomination it received for the Red Maple category of the Forest of Reading Awards. There must have been a surge of sudden sales. I know that my publisher has ordered another print run so shelves, both virtual and actual, should hopefully be restocked soon. In the meantime, if you or anyone else needs or wants a copy - please feel free to contact me directly at nancypif@gmail.com and we can work something out from the small supply I have at home. I purchased some myself for these sorts of situations and should anyone want to purchase an autographed copied directly. Perhaps since you are so close by - I could get a friend or family member to drop it off in Baden or we could figure out a way to get it to you through the mail. Looking forward to your email, and again...thanks so much for your interest. I hope that eventually more schools will hear about it and make use of it. I truly believe in "pro-kindness" vs. "anti-bullying" and inspiring our youth to go out and make a difference in any way they can.
My best to you and yours. Nancy(less)

“He reads every book in his home but it is not enough. The country boy craves stories. He devours every poem and fable in his school and library. Still he hungers. For stories.”
Jennifer Lanthier, The Stamp Collector

Nicholas Sparks
“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..”
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Chris Abani
“What I've come to learn is that the world is never saved in grand messianic gestures, but in the simple accumulation of gentle, soft, almost invisible acts of compassion.”
Chris Abani

Lori Lansens
“Write,' she said, 'as if you'll never be read. That way you'll be sure to tell the truth.”

Kristin Butcher Hi Nancy,
Hope all is well in your world. I haven't fallen off the face of the earth; just left the social network. (It's been a year and a half already.) It wasn't a a healthy fit for me. New book coming out next spring. In the meantime, I'm honing my painting skills. Who knows? Perhaps I can become an illustrator. To catch up on my activity or to get in touch, please visit me at my website: www.kristinbutcher.com
