Thanks to all who were able to attend this morning’s book signing at the Book Mouse in downtown Ottawa, Ill.!
It was especially nice to see the many relatives, friends and coworkers who showed their support, as well as the many new faces who are kind enough to give this book a chance. The highlight of the day, beyond all others, was meeting 8-year-old Marissa, from north-central Illinois. Her smile over meeting an author was humbling.
Meeting the readers is a vital reminder that the readers are one of the most important components of the writing process.
Thank you for the privilege of allowing me to tell you a story.
