I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this book fest. I was completely surprised that this was their first gathering. Well done!
I only hope I will be a part of it next year, as an author, in some capacity.
Gary Carden is a jewel. Can I now say that I have a big ole crush on Mr. Carden (teehee). He always looks as if he's just about to give you a big old wink, but doesn't - which is why I like that better - the promise of a big old wink without the actual doing of… Continue

Has a stare-down with a chipmunk who’s climbed up the Tulip Poplar and is cramming as many sunflower seeds into his cheeks he can possibly fit. He sees you. You see him. The stare begins. You win when he runs away, but you feel silly about it and then hum softly to yourself as if it doesn’t matter.

I couldn't be happier. More people than I ever could have imagined attended.
A blogger I'd never met drove from Georgia, almost 2 hours away, to attend - I felt honored.
I feel nothing but gratitude.

Tonight is my first signing - I guess I'll see if anyone shows up....at any rate, we'll have some yummy food and cake and some champagne, so if Osondu staff, me, my husband, and about three friends are there, we'll just gobble it all down *laugh*
I'm beginning to see reviews for Tender Graces - and so far so good, but what is also a wonderful thing is the "off the cuff" comments from bloggers who have bought the book - I'm surprised and happy at the response.
We all just… Continue

I'm excited and terrified, but Tender Graces's pre-orders will be shipped tomorrow - along with any bookseller orders. My first signing will be at Osondu's on 4/17 from 7-9 PM (reservations, so if anyone here would like to attend - I'd love to meet you there! Call Osondu's!)....
I've been invited to the Louisiana Festival of the Book, so that's exciting.
So far, the few reviews I've had are good - more will be coming and I'll just wait and see how that goes.
