How to describe LAUNCH DAY! So exciting to wake up and finally have my debut novel officially out into the world. First of all, seeing the book on a shelf in a real bookstore is a huge thrill (thank you to my hometown bookstore, Buttonwood Books!). The luck of the alphabet put me right below Richard Russo and directly beside Barbara Shapiro. I’ll take that positioning any day! I was actually down in NYC for the launch and was lucky enough to start my day with my oldest friend, who invited a group of lovely women to her apartment to introduce them to me and my book. What a treat to be able to sit in a living room, talk about the book, read a few passages, and have them all go home with my book in their hands! I was then treated to a wonderful event at Edelman (the PR firm) who invited a group of employees to step out of their project-mode for an hour and listen to me and Debra Copaken (also an author) discuss the process of writing a book and where creative inspiration comes from. My day ended with a tweet that the Barnes and Noble at the Prudential Center in Boston has selected Fill the Sky as their staff pick of the week. What a day. I am very grateful!
