Supply Chain Pixies have not been kind to Dad's Girlfriend and other Anxieties! After last-minute publication delays in September and October, let's hope the third time is the charm! 

My friend, author Sarah Aronson, is hosting an online celebration at 6 pm MST (7 pm Central, 8 pm EST, 5 pm Pacific), Nov. 22 (publication day, fingers crossed). I hope you can join us! Contact me for the Zoom link!
