Dear American Readers, the American version of my book has already been released, and my Canadian publisher wants you to buy it from the Americans he sold the American rights to. Here is what your version looks like: You can buy it over amazon.com, and I bet you can get it at your diocesan bookshop, too.
Everyone else can keep on buying Cute Cartoon Lady instead of Shoe Lady for yourselves, your friends, your siblings, your cousins, your aunts, your parish priests and your publisher pals in central Europe.
Meanwhile, I am delighted by this marvellous review in the Prairie Messenger by Caitlin Ward. British readers should know that in Canada "cow" is not the mortal insult it is in this sceptered isle, this earth of majesty, this seat of Mars (etc).
