It’s been a long time! I got very sick in May and wound up in the hospital for a few days with a gastrointestinal disaster. I’m happy to report I feel fine now, and I’ve been given a sparkling clean bill of health.
Thank you so very much for all your support during this time, for your kind words, and comments and likes on social media. If you’re not my friend on Facebook, please reach out to me there at https://www.facebook.com/InaMayWool. I can still add a few more to that page before I hit the FB max. Find me on twitter @InaMayWool. Been having lots of fun with photos. See some of the pix I've taken in the past few months below my signature.
In the meantime, I’ve been cooking up a batch of songs I’m extremely excited about. My focus is on writing, and I think you’ll be surprised and pleased with the new stuff when you hear it. Astonished even? Could be.
But yesterday a friend who met me when I was 17 that I hadn’t heard from in a while wrote from far away to say her Thanksgiving celebration included going out to a movie, then having dinner with her husband while listening to my CD Crack It Open. She wrote with warm words of appreciation. Other fans and friends have been quoting my lyrics to me, mentioning older songs, talking about my albums.
Meanwhile I just found out that CD Baby is charging only one penny for shipping everything between November 30 and December 4th. It’s one cent for shipping whether you buy 1 or 100 CD’s during that time only. Artists love CD Baby because they pay us a higher percentage than other distributors. Your purchase helps support the music more.
So what the heck? The universe might be trying to tell me something.
I’m looking forward to having my new songs recorded. In the meantime, if you’d like copies of Moon Over 97th Street or Crack It Open, for yourself or to give as gifts, please go to my CD Baby page at http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/InaMayWool. You can also purchase my collaboration with social activist Bev Grant (WOOL&GRANT) on a different CD Baby page: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/woolgrant.
I wish you the very best of health and happiness and celebration, and I promise it won’t be such a long time before my next letter. Let’s make it a music-filled holiday season!
