Happy Book Birthday to THE POWER OF HARMONY!

Book Launch Invite - FB

Let the nail-biting begin! I finally got my hands on a copy of The Power of Harmony yesterday – Mitzi from The Box of Delights book store was kind enough to lend me a copy while I’m waiting for my author copies to arrive.

I’ve decided having a new book is a lot like sending one of your kids off to their first day of kindergarten – you’re excited and happy (because of all that “free” time), but at the same time, totally terrified! Will the other kids like him? Will your kid behave himself and make you proud? Will all the strangers be friendly and kind? And if not, will your kid be be strong enough to cope and stand on his own two feet?

Despite this terror, I’m looking forward to my launches – in Wolfville on June 8th, and in Springhill (where the novel is set) on June 11th. Hope to see some of you there!

    Good luck on your launch Jan. You nailed it when you said it was like sending your child off to kindergarten.

    Thanks for reading, Laura and Darlene! Honestly, I’m hoping I can get away with not speaking/reading at the Wolfville launch, but I know I’ll have to do both in Springhill (to explain that I used artistic licence such that the geographic details aren’t 100% accurate). Happy sunny weekend!
