Book Love, Continued

September 13th

So, Mini was exceptionally kind to film the book signing for me. I’m just getting through email and remembered I hadn’t posted these links. If you are interested in hearing any of this, here is the first part. The others are available via her Youtube account. (Her undying friendship? Available with 20-plus years of dedication. Plus, she’s one of the funniest bloggers out there.)

Also, the reviews are coming in and I couldn’t be more flattered. Kirsten wrote this glowing note about my book that brought me to tears. Friends have spoken with their local libraries to purchase copies. My minister took me to lunch last week to discuss the characters at length. I can’t tell you how fun it is to hear the parts of the stories my friends and family like and the glaring errors they want fixed for the next edition.

Noted. With a smile.

Forever thankful,

  2. Yours is next in my pile. I had too many started to read it right away but I’m ready now!

  3. Ah, Kelli!!!!! I started tearing up when your friend panned back across the crowd and ALL of the faces were so clearly filled with pride and happiness for you. You are truly, truly a remarkable person. Big, humongous, rib-crunching hugs, Kelli…your proud and smiling friend…
    @Candace: you are in for a TREAT! 🙂
