Good Morning! How’s everyone this red-letter day? JoEllen, one of our Twitter/Blog Girlfriends contributed the perfect MUSICA this auspicious morning! Enjoy! At four this afternoon I’m having my first book signing for our book at Bunch of Grapes Bookstore here on the island. Nervous, yes! Happy? Thrilled! And I thought I’d share a few of the wonderful photos I’ve been getting from YOU. ♥ This first one is from our girlfriend AngieTink who just received the books she ordered . . .
Apparently, Angie’s planning to spread her fairy dust throughout the western world! Thank you Angie! ♥
This is Cadie. She’s the daughter of our Girlfriend Joann from Colorado (thank you Joann!). She’s reading the first chapter of A FINE ROMANCE to her mom. She’s a Romance expert right now . . . she’s going to be a very beautiful bride in a few weeks.
And, speaking of gardens, look at these cute girls! That’s Linda on the left and Kathy on the right. Do they know how to do it up right? Oh yes they do! Roses on the tablecloth, silver tea set, crustless cucumber sandwiches, strawberries floating in sparkling-something in thin tulip glasses, scones, flowers, all in a gorgeous garden — a perfect setting to take your book for a wonderful afternoon read with your best friend. I was honored to come along (even in book form)!
But what else would we expect from Kathy? This is a photo she sent me a few years back. She has been writing the story of her life, year after year, keeping her journal in my Book of Days . . . Counting her Blessings galore. Thank you Kathy who understands, just like you, the importance of the
This photo came from our Girlfriend Dawn in Elmhurst . . . she’s serving her book along with heart-shaped gingerbread scones! Our book is everywhere! Thank you Dawn!
And out to the gorgeous Missouri Prairie we go — this photo sent by Patricia Kelley via Twitter! Love those cows! Love our book among the cows! Thank you Patricia!
In these photos, our Girlfriend Georgie (and her very own JOE) are packing their car for the trip from New Jersey to Martha’s Vineyard for the signing on the island tonight. They went to Illumination Night last night. How is that for perfect timing? And the Fireworks are on Friday! It’s perfect weather for our Girlfriend and her Guy!
These are the photos Georgie sent from the boat. Thank you Joe and Georgie!
Well, this is all I have time for today! I have so much to do! I have to figure out what to wear tonight, get Jack’s cat hair off Petey’s sailor outfit, gather up the painted bookmarks,
and think about what I might say before the signing. This is always the scary part. Fun, but scary. But I didn’t want to let today go by without saying hello! And Girlfriends, a second printing of the book was just ordered! Yes! Now all of you have signed First Printings! It’s all going so well, which I attribute to YOU! Almost all the books we had have been sent out now . . . but we kept some back for our web store, in case you need one and can’t find one at your local store, we’ll try to have them for you. The second printing will be here in about two months. So all I can say is . . . from the bottom of my heart . . .
