Jessie: In NH where we are finally getting some rain!
As many of you know I have been enthusiastically celebrating the release of my latest novel, Whispers Beyond the Veil this month. It has been a great deal of fun to post things here on the blog and over at Maine Crime Writers.
Reviews of the book have been spotted around the web on blogs like Carstairs Considers and Moonlight Rendezvous. Anna Lee Huber featured it on her monthly Sweet Sixteen Giveaway on Facebook. The other Wickeds were even nice enough to take a copy of the book with them to Bouchercon for a little show and tell since I was not able to attend.
And to top off all the long-distance celebrating I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to connect with readers and other writers in the physical world. I was so delighted to be asked by the charming and gracious, Karen Baker, owner of The Country Bookseller in Wolfeboro, NH to hold a launch party for the book at her shop this past Saturday.
The turnout was wonderful and I got to meet, or to reconnect, with so many delightful readers. There is just something so special about being surrounded by the sight and the feel of row upon row of books. Especially when you are sharing the experience with other people who love them as much as you do.
I hope all of you who have sent well-wishes from all around the web, and those of you I have had the pleasure of seeing in person, know just how grateful and appreciative I am of your support. Books are written in solitude. But they are meant to be shared. Thanks to you all for letting me share mine with you!
Readers, do you ever attend book launches? Writers, do you have a favorite launch story you’d like to share?
