Two days ago, I met my friend Terri S. for lunch. As usual, I was running five minutes behind schedule and she was already seated when I arrived at the restaurant. I hurried over to the table and saw that she had two copies of The Wild Sight lying there next to her elbow on top of her plastic Barnes & Noble bag.
That's when it hit me: That was MY book! It really is out there in bookstores. Complete strangers are reading it. I REALLY AM A PUBLISHED AUTHOR!
After all these years of trying and hoping and dreaming, it was a very surreal moment.
So as promised, here are a few piccies of the big in-person pizza and cake launch party that happened one week ago. Wish you could have all been there!
AC and long time friend and former officemate Donee Sue.
And another long time friend and officemate Linda E. who designed the flyer/invitation for the party.
Signing my very first copy of The Wild Sight for friend and chaptermate Maureen R.
Cutting a piece of the cake for my very good friend Debbie J.
This party will always have a special place in my heart, but I'm looking forward to having more launches in the future!
