One humbled Irish Hungarian

Last night, friends old and new filled Local Girl Gallery to the rafters to hear me read from The Irish Hungarian. The event sparkled with energy and my publishers report that we sold every book they'd brought to the event.

I have now drafted and re-drafted this post a dozen times, but am still at a loss for words. Suffice it to say that last night has me a bit overwhelmed, more than a little humbled and so so thankful for everyone who attended and helped make the event a success.

All of you give me so much. What would I do without you?

Love, Erin

Erin,
My most sincere apologies for not being able to make it last night, I trust that my stand in was an acceptable substitute.
Mac's Backs is on the calendar.

Thanks gang. My head's been spinning all day over last night. It was something.

Alph, I suspected the Moore Clan might be behind the mystery flowers. Somewhere our Dad's are smiling.

Yippee! Just think, if I could make the Mac's Backs reading, I could meet get a signed copy of your book AND meet Alpha. Next time....

CONGRATULATIONS again!

Well Twink, if you can have yourself in Bethlehem PA on the morning of the 24th you can ride back with me.
You let me do the driving, I'll let you pick the music. I'm sure it would be a memorable trip.

Any video evidence of this event? Would be worth a view I'm sure. Congrats on the turnout!

Amazon swears my pre-order copy is coming this week...
