The book signing party at Osondu Bookseller was a success! I am so humbled and happy.
I had a Huge surprise, too….one of our own bloggers – the beautiful vivacious sparkling eyed Kathleen of Katsoup came to the signing! Bless her, and her husband, drove from Georgia to attend. I was astounded and overwhelmed with gratitude!
I posted some photos on facebook and on the Tender Graces blog. Below is the photo of Kathleen and I – *smiling*
I couldn’t be happier – I can’t tell how many attended, but I was pleased and happy with the response. Some came early and had to leave, some came later after the champagne toast, some stayed the whole time – but it was such a blur of excitement, I just know that my friends were there, that there were more people that I imagined (I had told Good Man Roger: "please, just let there be at least 10 people there…." well, there were more than 10 people there *laughing*
I woke up this morning with a big smile on my tired but happy face. No matter what happens from here on out, I have reached my goal: I wanted to see my book published, I wanted to have a first signing party, I wanted to sign my book for beautiful friends, I wanted my family to have my book — all done. Everything else is just icing on a big beautiful cake – which I’m also posting a photo of Christy L. Bishop’s cake – she’s chef/owner of Sugar Buzz and this cake was so GORGEOUS!
Ha! I have pen in hand! *smiling* Look at Kathleen’s sparking eyes (and can I please have that beautiful blond hair!)
