My first-ever public reading of Fill the Sky (a full two months before launch!). What an incredible way to begin the process of sharing this story with the world. My wonderful friend Susan hosted a beautiful afternoon reading in her back yard featuring Louise Miller (who’s terrific book The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living debuted this summer) and me! The afternoon included inspiring fiddlers, in keeping with a musical thread that runs through Louise’s book, lovely food and drink and a lawn full of avid readers. It was a treat to read a few passages, answer questions about the book and the writing process and share my excitement with readers. Susan even pre-sold the book for me so her friends will be getting their very own copies soon after publication date. Thank you Susan and Louise for a wonderful day!
