The Book Launch Every Author Dreams Of

WOW ! It was amazing. On Thursday evening May 19th I launched my novel The Year Mrs. Montague Cried. It was held in my home community on the beautiful Kingston Peninsula at the Farmer's Market in a great room filled with 200 of my closest friends and family. I was introduced so sensitively by my dear friend Ruth.My daughter and her husband and my granddaughter flew in from Alberta to surprise me and joined my son ,his wife , my other son , his girlfriend and my husband surrounding me  with love and support. My Mom and Dad , a favorite aunt , two special  cousins and their  spouses  and all the in laws in the area were there as well. Friends,neighbors  former collegues and many former students made the night complete. I signed loads of books and received a lot of hugs and warm words . Afterwards I unwound at home with a group of the people I love most in the world.People are holding and reading my book , a book hard written and deeply felt. Zac was right there with me and I couldn't be more thankful for the book's  launching and the manner in which it was recieved.

  1. Hi Susan, Thrilled to see you have your site up. It's beautiful. Also wonderful that you had such a well attended book launch. It sounds as though everyone had a marvelous time. Such an exciting time when a first book comes out. It makes all those years of writing seem well worth the effort, doesn't it?

    I picked up a copy the other day. It's a lovely, lovely story. :) I'm wishing you all the success with your book.
