I am SO behind in keeping you updated on what’s been happening in my world. Probably because I’ve been writing blogs for my blog tour as well as for the Writing Sluts blog, editing, writing, etc, etc. I know. That’s no excuse!
On Saturday the 3rd, I had my debut book signing in the library ‘back home’ and had a lot of people show up to see what I had to offer. Normally, I like to sit in the back of the room and observe. Um, not gonna’ happen here. I stood up in front of everyone, gave a nice little talk about my writing journey and signed books for family and friends. One super sweet cousin drove SIX HOURS to help me celebrate. Bless her heart!
Okay, I’ll admit I’d told her I’d bake her favorite cookies if she’d come, but she never responded to me. I mean, it’s a 6 hour drive for goodness sake. I squealed when I saw her get out of the car!
I received some gorgeous flowers from Marilyn, Susan & Jackie (who couldn’t be there), had sister writers there to cheer me on and even had my mother-in-law and step-mom there for support (despite the awful heat).
I had a wonderful day!! Actually, I think I was floating on air most of the time. 😉
You have your first book only once, and these ladies wanted to make sure it was special for me. They have no idea how they touch my heart and soul. Their kindness and thoughtfulness will forever be a part of my life. I look forward to the day when I can pay it forward to another member of the group when she sells her first book and has her own book launch. Because now I know how much it will mean to them.
My next book signing will be at Steve’s Sundries in Tulsa on August 25th from 1-3 pm. Drop by if you’re in the area. I’d love to see you!
