Celebrating the Release of RECKLESS BEGINNINGS
Saturday, October 13th, I celebrated the release of RECKLESS BEGINNINGS with a book launch and signing party at our local library. What a fantastic time I had, shared with family and great friends. I live in a small rural town and was touched by the turnout and the support this little community has given me through this entire journey leading up to this event. I was pleasantly surprised when the local newspaper showed up to cover the event. Thank you Mountain Enterprise. It was a joyous occasion where many tears and laughter were shared.
The event lasted about two hours. During which time I gave a little history behind the book and why I wrote it, read an excerpt and talked about my next book titled BETTER ENDINGS and the prequel, titled, THE JOURNALS OF TAMMY. Here is a little snippet of the presentation.
Involving the kids
Being a family affair, my grandsons were present along with a few of their buddies. (All of which were remarkably well behaved by the way). I wanted to involve them in this special day and gave them the important job of pulling out the raffle tickets for the five prizes. They did a great job! Thank you, guys 🙂
The amazing cake
One of the highlights of the event was the amazing cake made by my daughter-in-law’s mother, Gloria. In fact, she made two of these. She did an outstanding job with decorating it and using the cover of the book. Thank you, Gloria! And it was delicious too.
I love this community.
I have lived in Frazier Park for over fifteen years and could not imagine living anywhere else. I absolutely love this town. It’s a small mountain community, about seventy-five miles north of Los Angeles at five thousand feet elevation, settled at the base of Frazier Mountain.
Here there is no fast lane. We lead a slower pace of life, breathe in only clean air and see the stars at night. It’s a place where everyone knows everybody and the people of this town will support you one hundred percent on your adventures in life. The town has proved that by following me on this amazing journey since announcing, I was writing a book. They’ve followed me on social media, offering me words of encouragement and praise and by attending the book signing. Thank you, Frazier Park!
