My “Pre-launch launch party” at Hunni Co. in Edmonds (right) on Ocotber 6th was the best night ever! Friends, family and fans all came to celebrate this project and support the literary arts. What a gorgeous event space!

Mary Kay at the Edmonds Bookshop gave me the warmest welcome and intro on Saturday, November 3rd (left gallery). I can’t think of a better way to spend my birthday than at a reading for my first book at my local hometown independent bookstore.

The reading on November 12 at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park (right gallery) was a dream come true, with neighbors and friends and book shoppers gathered together on a beautiful fall Friday night.
