Watson's Case Weekend

A special thanks to all my family and friends, both old and new, who celebrated the release of my second book, Watson's Case. It would not be what is without all of you, especially a few individuals I must acknowledge here.

Michael: because of your assertive campaigning, advertising, and creativity, the book release event at Toy Zoo drew crowds larger than I ever dreamed! You worked so hard to promote me and my book and it paid off. I would never have published or pursued this hobby without you. I love you!

Marc, owner of Toy Zoo: due to your enthusiasm and willingness for us to take over your store, the kids enjoyed activities and I sold out of books! I think this is the beginning of a new business relationship!

Dad Shaw: the new book is dedicated to you for all your love and support and editing expertise. Someday I hope to pay you. In the meantime, I love you!

Kyle: your excitement, creativity, and support reflected on the front of each copy I sell has visually turned Sherlock Academy into a wonderful thing. One kid told me, "I bought your book because I liked the cover!" Thank you!

Family and Friends: special thanks to my mom and Mimi, Sarah and Adam who made the long drive up for the event. Special thanks to Jon, Morgan, and Adi who snapped photos, brought fun siblings to the party, and gave me extra moral support. Special thanks to the great Kiniry Clan for using the Burrow to host the private release party--it added extra magic having it there with them. And thanks to everyone else!

And all humble thanks to God, who for some reason decided to inspire me with Sherlock Academy, and allowed me to share it with others. I'll never fully understand His plan--it's too grand!

Thanks to Farah for creating a great book we can gather around to talk, laugh, and speculate about. We love you!

The two celebrations were great fun and full of interesting games for young and old alike. Next time let the Santa Maria Times know about any book events.

Mum- we did let the SM Times know--TWICE. They posted something in the events section but wouldn't cover it other than that.

We too will endeavor to cover new upcoming Sherlock Academy events much more meticulously.... With best wishes and regards,
The Times of London, The Guardian, Telegraph,Gazette,
News of the World, and Daily Mail... P.S. There may be some delay as someone has just
kidnapped our three North American Reuters news service correspondents and is demanding a substantial
ransom in sterling, or Miss Gram..... The Editors
