The Sleeping Lady at Book Passage

What a great audience! They entertained me as much as I (I hope) entertained them.

 

My official launch event was last night and it was a blast. The turnout was beyond anything I expected: The bookstore didn’t have enough chairs to accommodate everyone.

My friend, Kate, delivered a beautiful introduction. Because the crowd was almost all people I knew—friends, family, work colleagues—I felt super-comfortable. It was such a pleasure to share my writing journey, read from the book, and answer questions. Plus, there was wine and food. I’m so grateful to everyone who came and wished me well.

Next up: the local dog park later this week. I’m not kidding. At the suggestion of one of the regulars, I’m hosting a wine and cheese evening to celebrate my book launch. Let’s hope the dogs don’t eat the books.
