One More Day!

Tomorrow is the day I meet the ridiculous goal I set for myself three years ago: to be published by 45. I wouldn't be here without so many people, but especially my husband and sons, my friends and family, the generous writers I've met through DFW Writers' Workshop, critique groups and conventions, and my editor at Skyhorse, Nicole Frail. But, especially I wouldn't be here without my awesome agent, Alice Speilburg. I wrote the books, set the ambitious goal, and she made it happen. She's a rock star.

The Launch Party

I am humbled by the great turnout at Saturday night's launch party. Of course I knew I had supportive friends, but there was a tiny part of me that worried no one would show up. Sometimes I'm a silly, silly girl; there was a bar and cake. Of course my friends were going to show up.

I've been trying since Saturday to figure out how to adequately put into words how wonderful it was and here I am, 5 o'clock Monday afternoon, still speechless. Instead, I'll let the pictures tell the story. Sorry there aren't captions; it involves CSS and I don't have the time or patience to deal with it.
