Fellow author Jodie Toohey launched her latest book at the Midwest Writing Center yesterday.  “Melody Madson – May It Please the Court?” sold from a display of its own. Jodie’s three other print creations lay face up on a table nearby – a pair of poetry collections and her first YA novel “Missing Emily.” We politely asked each other about our book sales and progress on the latest story we are compelled to tell. We imagine, write, edit digitally release, print and bind worlds for others to discover.  We wait for sales, reviews, confirmation that our story touched a few or, dare we dream, many someones.  Writers are such hopeful people
