If you’ve read any of our blogs you “know” Steve. He’s our endearing, smart and oh-so-adorable editor at Fairview Press. And thanks to Steve – who is also a marketing/PR guru of the literature world – What Happy Parents Do has received all sorts of media attention lately. For that, and for Steve, we give much thanks on this eve of the national holiday for such gratitude.

Deger-Dude, you rock!

And to all of my friends and family out there, please know I’m incredibly thankful for you too. And even though I might have been ignoring you lately, it’s only because I’ve been taking calls from all of the reporters and radio DJ’s that call at all hours of the day and night. For that you can blame Steve. Last name Deger. Of Fairview Press. Of Minneapolis, MN. He likes oatmeal and raisin cookies more than wine or flowers. Be sure they are from Lunds or homemade.

Want to buy a copy of What Happy Parents Do? We’re thrilled that WHPD is available at your favorite gift or bookstore, including all Patina, Bibelot, and Hot Mama locations in the Twin Cities.
