"No One But You"

It's great having a Dublin city centre studio, and it's particularly buzzy during the week of official visits to Ireland by both Queen Elizabeth and President Obama.
The Queen's visit a few days ago was a major success, and today President Obama is making a speech down the road a bit in College Green. I don't think I'll be able to see him from my window but I will certainly be able to hear his speech. (They are testing out the PA system right now)
Obama is such an important figure in history, being the first African-Irish-American President, but he is also a hugely inspiring speaker, and I am really looking forward to hearing his speech later to-day.
I blogged before on how one of the pictures in "Lincoln and his Boys" by Rosemary Wells, was inspired by Obama's election, and likewise I was thinking about Obama when I created the image on the cover of my latest book "No One But You".
Written by Douglas Wood, "No One But You" was published in the US last Tuesday.

My copy is on it's way and I can't wait to see it. I'm always excited to lay my eyes on a new PJ Lynch book. I'm glad you're settled in nicely in Dublin, my friend. One of these days I'm gonna get there.

Many thanks Sadami and James,
I hope you will like the book when it arrives, James.
Re Dublin...... has been a crazy week, security-wise and I'll be glad when things get back to normal. But I must say being in the same street while Obama delivered a terrific speech was pretty big deal for me.
Best regards

PS James
I forgot to say thanks for ordering the bloomin' book!
All the best
