To be truthful, I was pleasantly surprised and stuck for suitable words to express my gratitude to everyone who helped to make this event a memorable experience.
Secretly, I thought if thirty people were to show up that would be very good and fifty will be fantastic. First, the people started coming in trickles of ones or twos, then in small groups that eventually became much larger.
By the time I had signed a few books and raised my head to take in what was going on around the hall, I was amazed at how the audience had grown not twice but triple in size.
There were many things I loved about this event, but what stood out the most is how the threads of the community spirit were woven into almost all aspects of the celebration.
I would like to say a big THANK YOU for helping me celebrate the launch of my book on Saturday.
Again, thank you very much.
P.S. - I'll be sharing some great videos and photos in the near future!
