I cannot check that site, but I have to pass on a sad word.

Diana has been recovering from a ten-day bout of flu, which had become a
chest infection over last weekend, and on top of that has now caught a
cold.  Her husband rang the store this morning after looking at her
thoughtfully, and told them that he would not allow her to try to do a
signing tomorrow.

She didn't argue, which means she really is ill -- if she were able she
would not let people down.

She has asked me to tell the List so that nobody rushes to an event to meet
her when she won't be there.

She has asked me to say that her words are, "I'm sorry.  I'm *sorry*.  I'm
SORRY!  Bah!"
