My Name is Published

I was so excited yesterday to receive a copy of Abby Newton's new cello tunes book, Castles, Kirks and Caves. I'd been working with Abby for several years now. The tunes are like old friends to me. Abby game me the nicest tribute in the acknowledgements page:

“I would like to thank my Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp cello student, Judy Bush for inspiring me to put this book together. Several years ago, she asked me when I would publish my next collection of tunes and generously offered to transcribe the music into digital form. For four years she has been sending me musical copy for rhythm, bowing, and chord corrections. Without Judy’s persistence and help this would never have come together.” (I added the boldface type for emphasis!)

It was a fun project for me, and it is especially nice that I have my name in a book. I feel like I've been published!
