I have to blog before I burst!!
Today has been such a fantastic day! We had a lively event in our rather sleepy town. A bike tour, called Pedal the Plains, finished the second leg of the journey in Burlington. We had a huge celebration - food vendors, local crafters, and music.
I signed up to sell and sign copies of Asylum. I didn't know what to expect, but of course, I hoped to sell out. I didn't, but that really doesn't matter. I enjoyed seeing the community folks and the visitors. I set up near the main stage and got to rock out to some awesome bands. My favorite was the Parlor Pickers. It was wonderful to experience the moments the day had to offer.
I did get to sign a few books for some very special people. And I met some new friends who made me so happy because they wanted a picture with the author. And the biggest honor of all - I got to place a signed copy into the hands of the governor of Colorado - John Hickenlooper. He was sincere and kind as he offered me a few moments of his precious time. I am so blessed!
This whole day was really good for me. I had to come up with quick answers to the "What's it about?" question. Someone looked at the table, pointed, and said to his friends, "Hey, look! They have a writer here." It was so good to have a stranger call me a writer! It confirmed my identity in that role.
I am grateful to have been part of Pedal the Plains. I'm even more grateful to those folks who stopped by and took a chance on my book. Thank you for such a great day!
