I am just getting ready to head off to my Book Launch and I am so excited. It is simpy the best Christmas present I could ever have. A long time in coming but worth the wait.
The weather is cooperating for those coming in from out of town with a huge storm holding off for tomorrow. My thanks to whatever/whomever is responsible.
I’ll be reading from the book, my brother Scott will be the M.C. and a few friends and family will weigh in also.
Not sure what I’ll say.. think I’ll just go with the moment.. but here’s a quote of Eudora Welty’s that I will probably include in my comments..
“The charm of poetry is that it rejects the edifying cathedral and, instead, indelibly photographs the small boy on the steps outside chewing a hunk of melon in the dust.”
Isn’t that perfection?
Here I go… wish me luck!
It was a fabulous launch! Very emotional! Thanks to Martin for his kind words.
