THE LAST GIFT, now in paperback, attracted a nice bit of attention on Nov. 26, for its launch at The Greyhound, an indie bookstore in Berlin, Md.
I am grateful to Susan and the staff at this charming little shop who love books in “America’s Coolest Small Town” for inviting me to bring this and all my books to talk about writing, inspiration and then to sign books.
I look forward, too, to speaking with the members of one of The Greyhound’s book clubs about my story of Donna, who joins a Mediterranean cruise with her sister even though she hates boats, and Scottie, the lonely ship’s officer, who helps her see how wonderful cruises can be.
I never knew how much fun it would be to share what I write with so many people. I met readers who already knew my other books, someone who loves books with a travel theme and someone who loves romances. And for my Jane Austen fans, there was Love Letters & Gingerbread. We sold out of those.
I am grateful for the love. I hope the next book makes people happy too.
