Through Rain and Tornado
Through rain and tornado and thunder, our readers came out last night to Cat Blanco's store in Marietta (The Book Exchange) just to hear Mary Kay Andrews and me speak about our Christmas novellas, writing, synchronicity, family and well, the holiday dysfunction we all must endure.
Cat went way over the top -- a cake; corsages; Christmas decorations and of course her annual Children's Holiday book drive (which shows her loving and giving heart). There was such a fantastic energy and everyone had a great time (or at least I did).
My favorite thing about these events is the reminder of this: I am not the only book worm! Growing up I believed I was the only one; the only girl who wanted to read books almost more than she wanted to do anything else. And when eighty people show up in the pouring rain JUST to talk about books -- well, I know I'm not alone in this world!
