Saturday’s launch party at The Story Museum ( was amazing: over 100 people showed up, drank Kir cocktails (a lot), ate red velvet cupcakes & generally caroused. My whole world was in the room – family (my parents, via Facetime!), friends and neighbours, book groupers, fellow writers – I felt completely overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and support. Huge thank you to everybody who made it such a great evening.
