Almost a week has passed since our return from The Golden State, and I’m still feeling the effects. No, I’m not talking about the jet lag or the head cold I picked up somewhere over North America on the way back. I’m referring, first of all, to the wonderful memories of the scenery, the sunshine, the activities, and the many fantastic sights and sounds of California from Los Angeles to San Francisco. It was a trip to be remembered as these pictures can attest.
Don’t touch that dial! You’ve landed on Lisa Burton Radio. The only show that brings you interviews with the characters from the books you love. I’m your host, Lisa the robot girl, and my special guest today is the owner of a small pub in Montreal. “Welcome to the show Charlene Butler.” “Hi, Lisa. Thank […]
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.
