And what an incredible year it has been! Since my book was published last April, I’ve done readings and had author signings at eight events in various libraries, indie bookstores, shops, and a university. I was interviewed for the newspaper, and I discovered my book has been reserved for the entire year with the Arkansas State Libraries Book Club circuit. And speaking of book clubs, I have had the pleasure of being the guest author at seven different book clubs (I’ve got more to come on my calendar), all unique and fabulous in their own way.
My book was acquired by Tantor Media and turned into an audiobook. (The narrator is fantastic—if you know someone who likes audiobooks, you should encourage them to have a listen. I was so entranced by the narrator’s good job, I forgot I’d written the book! Haha.)
I’ve been sent kind notes and pictures from friends with my book all over the world (the furthest is New Zealand!). I’ve had so many lovely folks tell me how much they enjoyed reading my little story, and every time, I’m thrilled and humbled all over again.
So thank you, dear readers, dear supporters, dear friends, for making the debut year of my debut novel so very special. I appreciate you all more than you will ever know! And since someone once said a picture is worth a thousand words, well, here are a few thousand for you!
From the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU.
And hey! Stay tuned for a reader’s appreciation giveaway, starting on MAY 9th. Details and a link coming soon!
