Last weekend, I had my first book signing. I wished all of you could've been there, and some of you were. So, I wanted to share some images. My very good friend Audrey Michele took all the photos and as usual, they're perfect. A beautiful representation of what was one of the most special days of my life.
Note the champagne glass hiding in the corner. I think that was my second, or fifth, glass.
Perfect weather. The stunning view from our balcony.
The incredible cake. I think everyone was relieved it wasn't more...Rob Rhino shaped...
Yes, those are my pink chandeliers and they're awesome. Just so happens my book cover colors complimented them. Coincidence?
These were all mine. Well, not technically, but I kept picking them up and drinking out of them even though they were someone else's. Hey, it was MY party. That's Richard's hand, the awesome guy from the Four Seasons who helped us out that day. He was sweet enough to pose with my book too (what could he do? he was trapped 28 floors up) which I will post on my FB page later.
My new friend, Manuel Ramos, Denver attorney by day, successful author by night. We have the same agent. She makes a lot more money on Manuel. This is me, forcing him to hold my book. I think I've already made it clear I'm obnoxious.
Hubby chatting up the guests. This is Patsy, her beau David, and Manuel. Patsy Brown is our realtor extraordinaire. After helping us find our beautiful home here in Denver, she hasn't been able to get rid us.
This is me, dying...I mean reading. Out loud. I didn't plan on doing it but when Manuel discovered my plan...he vetoed it. And Flo (you can see the back of her head here), his wife rounded everyone up, made them sit down, and then she was the BEST audience member ever. She laughed at all my jokes. She reminded everyone in her Flo firm way that they could buy a signed copy before they left. Cash or check, please.
I gotta say, I LOVE Flo. She's a great supporter of authors...she's married to Manuel and all. But she's a dynamo and I want to spend more time with her.
This is Lori and Lee. And hubby. Lori is laughing at my jokes. Actually, I have no idea when this photo was taken or what she's laughing at. I just choose to believe it's at my jokes.
"She just said what?" Awkward.
"Yep, I think she really did just say that."
I said what? And my mom never thought I'd amount to anything.
Me signing for Flo and Manuel. Did I say I LOVE Flo? I do.
I even had a little line! And more champagne!
My hallway. Me and my bull at the end.
Who knew you could sign an e-book? Sheri did. And she brought they stylus and everything. I'm too hip for words. Well, Sheri is.
This is me, looking all serious author like. In my furniture that does tricks. That chair pushes in and it looks like it's just a table. That's the trick.
Me and Audrey Michele. Love to you, Audrey. You rock.
There's more photos...but I have to save some for my FB page! It's just too much fabulous for one day.
Thanks to everybody who made it over, and to everyone who was rooting for me but couldn't make it.
It was a GREAT day.
