In the marketing of a book, an author has her/his work cut out when it comes to how best to go about it. But the ultimate feeling of joy comes from receiving an unexpected testimonial. This made my heart swell, and when I picture the real people involved in this scenario - it is exactly what I hoped this book would do:
We are so very happy with your book. We have a very reluctant mathematician in our house and this has given us a framework to work in and some great tips and pointers. I dare say my husband and I have learned a thing or two in the process.
Despite her lack of enthusiasm for doing math all summer (and really who can blame her???) I think she will be well pleased when she sees what a difference filling in the gaps will mean in Grade 7 math.

Thank you to all the people who have given me feedback. It means the world to me. Eight months on since publishing… this has given me such a boost. Heartfelt thanks.
