It's today. It's today. On-Sale Day. Okay, I used to think that meant the day-after-Thanksgiving herd of sales. But, what it means is this: the day a book goes onto the shelf and is For Sale. So I don't know why we don't call it For-Sale day....
Last night was an amazing night. Magical.
But here's the thing -- hundreds of people came out; hundreds of books were sold; hundreds of flutes of Pomegranate Bellinis were served and what is the only thing my daughter can talk about?? No, NOT me. Betty White and Jennifer Love Hewitt were there (okay, not for me, but just in the hotel bar with us). My daughter met and talked to Betty White, which trumps Mom signing books all day...
I am so grateful to everyone who came out for the celebration party, and my heart is full of gratitude from all the well-wishes and kind words and notes and posts and...sigh. It is all just so lovely.
The book received a STARRED LIbrary Journal review and this only makes the party and this on-sale day even better!
Next stop -- NYC. I'll post pictures and stories along the way.
