More than 50 people came. Family, friends, and strangers who saw the ad and were interested in the book.
I chatted. I read. I signed dozens of copies. It was elating, validating, and a heck of a lot of fun.
I baked coyote, pig, rabbit and cowboy hat cookies for the occasion (and believe me, when I bake, that's an occasion.)
I'm ready to do it again. Including the cookies.
