I'm cleaning my e-mail and I thought this was a nice note from the author of The Year of Fog.

Dear Maggie--

Thanks so much for your wonderful and creative write-up about The Year of Fog on your blog. And many thanks also for promoting it in newspapers in Mississippi! It's quite a treat for me that you're getting the word out about the book in Mississippi, as both of my parents grew up in Brookhaven and I have cousins, aunts, and uncles who live in Prentiss, Brookhaven, and rural Lincoln County. I spent a lot of time in Brookhaven as a child and have vivid memories of the drive from Mobile, through Hattiesburg.

The Year of Fog didn't have a big marketing budget behind it, so its success depends enormously on word-of-mouth. So, once again, thank you!

All Best,Michelle
