    karen signing_2I actually had a little ‘book-launch-nightmare’ Friday night.  I was standing in the bookstore with a crowd of people staring at me expectantly, and nobody was buying the book.

    I rarely remember my dreams, but if I’m awakened suddenly by a crying child, (as I was Friday night,)  it sometimes takes me a minute to differentiate between my dream-world and my real-world.

    Walking into the Laughing Oyster Bookshop yesterday afternoon was one of those rare occasions when my two worlds merged.  Launching my book was dreamy.  Evelyn, the store owner, took one look at me and said, “You look excited.”

    Initially it felt like I was reliving my wedding reception as my friends walked through the door and showered me with hugs and congratulations.  There were some lovely surprises though, and I was lucky enough to meet some new fans of the blog.

    In the end, the ladies at the Laughing Oyster called it a very successful book launch and there were only two books left in the store!  (F.Y.I.: firefly: new beginnings and Blue Heron books also carry the book.)

    Thank you friends, old and new, for making a little dream come true!
