I have been reading your books to my class for years. You are always a class favorite. This year when I read the last chapter of WHY, you could hear a pin drop.

Tomie: I just finished the artwork for Book 8, FOR THE DURATION. The publisher is scrambling to get it published asap. I heard this morning that mid-July is a likely on sale date.
