So this is it. The last day of my hmmtyeth days of celebrating my first two years in print.
Two years ago tomorrow, THE PULL OF GRAVITY was released.
Mary Engelbreit once said, "Time flies whether you are having fun or not."
Though this writing/publishing gig is certainly hard, and can be a heartbreaker at times, I am having fun. I really am living one of my dreams.
Of course, another dream is to return to Italy (where I honeymooned), cruise around Cinque Terre
|i once cruised around this on a glorious day...|
and then stay in the Hotel San Pietro in Positano (which I still cannot afford).
|The hotel is down there in that rock.|
But, I digress.
These past two years have really been a dream come true.
|me, two years ago, on May 10, 2011|
at the famous Strand bookstore NYC
(my book is above my head),
And I'm grateful for the people who helped bring the book to life, from the extraordinary Frances Foster and Susan Dobinick, to the copy editors and cover artists, to Becky Terhune on the hardcover, to Lauren Burniac and graphic artist Ashley Halsey who helped bring that eye-poppy paperback cover to shelves!
And to my pal, Rick Kopstein who, for the price of a diner meal, always makes me look good in my author photos, not always the easiest feat.
I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my grateful heart.
p.s. tomorrow, I will draw a random name from the comments to this series using a highly scientific method and will send someone a signed Advance Review Copy of The Summer of Letting Go when they're available in October. So, today is the last day to comment and enter. US residents only. So sorry. But shipping is prohibitive. :)
