The first tour for Ronald Reagan My Father is over. I’ve slept a couple of days and caught up on some work but before I get into booking the next leg for September — which should bring myself and Emily (whose softcover will be out in the States by then) to New York, San Francisco and Atlanta—I wanted to say thank you again to everyone who helped out this time.
Publishers: My editor Michael Holmes, publicists Sarah Dunn and Simon Ware, and Erin Creasey for getting the books to the stores.
