I am excited to share the good news--'les bonnes nouvelles'--with you today. My next book will be published by Simon and Schuster!

I want to thank French Word-A-Day readers for the support and encouragement you have sent in. Thanks also to these selfless behind-the-scenes editors: Chris and George Christian and Kathy Tinoco--who have sent in, on a daily basis and after publication, corrections to these stories.

Amicalement,
