I’m slowly coming back to earth after a fantastic weekend in Montreal. I had my first-ever book signing at a real bookstore, and what a store it is! I spent the afternoon at the Chapters store in Pointe-Claire, and I have to say I’m impressed.
Of course, I love bookstores (all authors do), and this store is one of the best. On top of that, the staff was efficient, accomodating, and welcoming. A special thank you to Alana Zemel for setting up this event for me. It was a pleasure working with you.
The signing of Sins of the Fathers was a great success! Besides my husband, there were six other people (family and friends) who came from Quebec City to offer their support (and to join in on the St-Patrick’s Day fun). I had visitors from all corners of Montreal, including, among others, my brother-in-law, cousins, and cousins-in-law. I met people who were friends of family, or friends of friends, and I was honoured to meet them. I also had some special surprises in the form of a group of good friends who travelled from Ottawa to spend the day with us. Others were with us in spirit and it was felt and greatly appreciated.
I am truly blessed to have such a network of friends and family, and it’s an important part of my life. There are many things that wouldn’t be possible without these people.
So thank you to all, and I will end this blog with an Irish Blessing dedicated to you:
May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.
