A BIG Thank You!!!

I owe a BIG thank you to so many people who helped me with signings this past weekend.

On my way to Idaho, I stopped by the Seagull Book Store in Logan. Margaret, the store manager, has always been so kind and thoughtful. She had to leave before the picture was taken. Melissa and Michelle took good care of me.

After the signing there, my husband and I journeyed on to Rigby, Idaho.

A BIG thank you goes out to everyone who attended the Idaho launch party for my Christmas book, An Angel on Main Street!
Wow! What an awesome experience. I was thrilled to see family and friends stop by to wish me well and buy a book. I really didn’t know what to expect, since the signing was not in a conventional book store.

The Idaho Drug in Rigby has some books, but their main business is filling prescriptions. However, this did not stop them from graciously agreeing to host my signing.

As I've mentioned in a couple of other blog postings, it was in the Idaho Drug where I would spend much of my time as a little girl reading books. The store has changed over the years, but that small town feeling remains. Not only did I see old friends I have not seen in quite a while, but I made several new friends as well. The Jefferson Star printed an interview with me, so many people who enjoy reading came to buy my book. In the picture below: my husband, Bruce; me; my sister-in-law, Tonya; and my brother, Steve.

In the picture above I'm standing with Steve, gazing at the stairwell that leads to the apartment over the store that my father owned when I was a child. Believe me, those stairs were very scary to a four-year-old. In my Christmas book I have Micah, the main character, trudging up and down stairs very similar to these.

Sitting at the table with me in the picture below is my sister, Jo. Yes, she's the cattle whisperer I blogged about a while ago. I wonder if she would become a book whisperer. Hmmm... :)
I wish I had pictures of everyone who stopped by: friends from high school and areas where we used to live, nieces and nephews, and the new friends I made that day. So much was going on that my picture-taker (Bruce) sometimes became side-tracked. But what a wonderful time. I will long remember this weekend.

Here's a big thank you to everyone who came!!!
