5,000 Paperclips = 5,000 New Adventures

Adarna House ran an initial 5,000 copies of my book. According to their marketing department, all copies are out in bookstores around the country... and they have no more copies in their stockroom! WOW! And just when I was thinking of sending it to Oprah... Hee-hee. I hope we'll print some more copies... especially since the mag feature will be out by June. Hooray! You can just imagine: it's another my-heart-is-bursting-happy kind of happy time. I'm one happy kid.

If you're one of the 5,000 with a Yellow Paperclip as a new friend, pause to think: if you have a paperclip, what colorful adventure will you start today? Let me know so I can include your stories in the sequel. (Yes, thanks to an impromptu brainstorming session with Papa last month, it looks like we have a sequel... and possibly even a prequel! I just need to get it out... and write.)

Dear Nikki: I am absolutely amazed and privileged to know an award winning writer. After reading your book several months ago, I knew I wouldn't be able to look at paper clips the same way again.

I really think, next to post-its, that they're the world's greatest invention. You're not the only one obssessed with them.

By the way, you just gave me an idea--I'm going to get copies of your book and send them to my baby cousins (and my older cousins' kids) abroad. I intend to help giving your paper clips more adventures :-)

Congratulations!
