Since my last post almost a month ago (!) when I concluded the First Sentence Fridays, I’ve already been from the mountains to the Piedmont and down into South Carolina just yesterday. It was after I got home, I calculated I’d logged over a thousand miles of driving since February 5th, my official book launch date, but there are plenty more places to visit and exciting events to come.
One of my favorite things about a book releasing is not only the fact that readers can now enjoy what I’ve been talking about for months, I also get to meet some of them. Here are a few pictures I’ve taken so far. I admit, I’m not the best at remembering to do this, and then I hate when it’s all over, and I realize I didn’t capture certain moments.
Here’s a small collection from various events so far – although this doesn’t count a couple of book clubs I’ve visited. (because I forgot to get pictures! And some of these are repeats if you follow me on Facebook)
For the book launch at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, NC. The cupcakes! Decorated with a cotton boll on top.
(where I also just found out the book is a bestseller!)
Support from family, friends, and new friends! (which is what I call people I don’t know. 🙂 )
Handsome (son, Justin) and me!
The Women’s Fiction Writers Association “sistahs” who came to support me! Thank you, Bernie, Monica and Rebecca!
