Your presentation was wonderful.  The ladies were so thrilled to have heard you and to have the opportunity to get an autographed copy of your book.  Thanks again for bringing your story and book to us in such a charming way.

Dear Helena,

On behalf of the Friends of the Central Library I want to thank you for your delightful presentation on Tuesday January 3. We enjoyed very much learning the thought process you went through in going from writing as a journalist to writing as a novelist. I have enjoyed reading your novel and  will be eagerly looking forward to your second one. I hope you will keep in touch when you are in Bradenton. Don't hesitate to e-mail me for hurricane updates.

Dear Helena,

What a lovely afternoon you provided our group!  I am going to tell our state chairman about you, so that perhaps other reading groups in the area might be able to arrange for you to speak to them.

Thanks too for sharing your wonderful story with us.  It was delightful!

Hi Helena,
    Thank you very much for your very entertaining speech last Friday.  Everyone I spoke to said it was the best entertainment we've had in a while.  It was a pleasure meeting you & having you dine with us.  I hope you managed to sell lots of your books - it looked like all of the ladies were clamoring for a copy!
