Book Signing & Contest Winners

Hi Y'all - just poking in my head briefly this beautiful Saturday morning. My brother Tommy is here and we're having so much fun.

First, I've already announced that Titus won the first place spot in the "promo" contest Angie Gumbo Writer held. And we had a drawing for the second and third place winners--both who will receive a signed copy of Secret Graces. The two winners are Terri Tiffany and Carrie Clevenger - Congrats!

Today is my Blue Ridge Books Osondu book signing - at 1:00 PM - Main Street Waynesville. I'm always nervous about book signings: what if no one shows? what if I'm sitting there all pitiful all by myself? what if no one buys a book and I have to look at the books the book seller bought and they are disappointed in me - lawdy be! This will be the first book signing of SG, so I'm really wide-eyed with nerves! But excited, too. If you are in the area, I hope to see you there - come say hello!

Thanks for taking up my slack in the contest when life made me go AWOL from Blogland, friend! :) Congrats to the winners. You will LOVE the book!

Don't worry 'bout no book signing. You'll have a line as always, being the famous semi-reclusive mountain writer woman. hehe. I always think no matter what, I'm rubbing elbows with writerly people, so it's a win-win.

Love/miss you! (Tell your brother he better keep "my" room neat.) *grin*

Just take a deep breath of that beautiful mountain air and smile, sha! It'll all work out for good, I'm sure, and your reward will be plenty! Have fun with your dear brother and congrats to the lucky winners! Cheers!

Dear Kathryn, Thank you more than words can tell. It is an honor to be mentioned in the dedication of SECRET GRACES and for my character to be a part of The Graces Saga. Thank you my dear friend and as ever be well. Stephen Craig Rowe
