I kicked off the book tour for The Good Woman last week and it has been a huge success so far. I’m awed and humbled by the response from my readers and family and friends. Going home to Visalia over the weekend and reconnecting with so many old friends and new was such a wonderful experience, I feel truly blessed. The luncheon was fabulous and I was so thrilled by the number of people who came to see me. Thank you, Visalia and Fresno! You’ve made me feel so loved!
We packed in a lot of events and it has been a little tiring with hours and hours of driving but every minute has been totally worth it. What’s made the whole experience even more fun is that I’ve had my beautiful sister, Kathy, with me every step of the way. It just feels so right to have her with me, especially given that this Brennan trilogy is really about sisters and their interaction and bonds with each other and here I am, getting a chance to spend so much time with mine. It makes me happy. I love it! Our relationship reminds me of how the sisters, Meg and Kit are always there for each other with lots of love and advice, a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on. That’s like my relationship with Kathy.
Now I’m home for a few days, trying to catch up with all the mail in my inbox, spend some quality time with my guys and prepare for tomorrow’s Orange County event. It’s going to be a fun Girls Night Out launch party for The Good Woman on Thursday, September 13th at 7pm at Tequila’s Mexican Grill. Then on the 17th and 18th of September, I head up to Seattle for a couple of events before coming back to California for a booksigning on the 19th at Warwick’s in La Jolla, CA. If you live close to San Clemente or San Diego or if you plan to be in the Seattle/Bellevue area around these dates, come join me for some fun. My events page has all the details so check it out. I’d love to see you!
I’ve also got a couple of mystery prizes here to share with you so talk to me. Tell me what you’ve been up to this week or share something about your sister(s) and what you love so much about your relationship. Contest runs through Tuesday next week and I’ll announce winners on Wednesday.
Now I’m off, taking my youngest to karate. Hope you’re all having a gorgeous, wonderful day!
