I’m enjoying a respite from the summer heat! I actually had goosebumps when I walked Lily this morning.
I’m am so grateful for all of the people who made my launch week for A Time to Swill so wonderful! I’m amazed by the number of bloggers and readers who take the time to read my books and then highlight them. While I miss in-person events there are some joys in doing virtual events because I get to do them with people I normally wouldn’t be able to. Also, people from across the globe can attend.
I did an event with S.C. Perkins and Esme Addison. I love their series and they both have such interesting premises. John from Murder by the Book asks such great questions! If you didn’t get to see out discussion here’s a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4g2ibZQMurY
I celebrated release day with Cate Conte and Meri Allen (aka Shari Randall) who both had books out too. Meri’s is first in a new series. The fabulous independent bookstore One More Page hosted us. Here’s a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoDLvLSLSeo
On Thursday morning I did a radio chat with prolific authors Vicki Delaney and Julie Ann Lindsey with Hunderton County Library. The link takes you to their Facebook page and then you have to scroll down to July 29th: https://www.facebook.com/HunterdonCountyLibrary
Thursday evening I got to chat with Meri Allen, Cate Conte, and Vicki Delaney — I can’t find a link to the event but we had a great time.
Tuesday night I had a wonderful time talking and making drinks with Cheryl Hollon! We had so much fun with Zandia from Bethany Beach Books! Here’s a link to their Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/BethanyBeachBooks/videos/387679342772144/
Also a huge thank you to everyone at Kensington Books who work so hard on each book! A special thanks to my editor Gary Goldstein and publicist Larissa Ackerman. And of course a big shout out to my agent John Talbot.
The week ended with a lovely gift from one of my readers. I’m am one fortunate woman.
Readers: Do you ever attend online events? Do you long for in-person ones?
