Just in case you missed it, our book-signing party on May 31, 2012 was a wonderful opportunity for Dan and me to visit with some of our friends and true fans of Charlie's Girl.
One of those attending was Kendra Swensen, a high schooler who shared with us some of her poetry which we found to be deeply moving and profound. She writes with a gift far beyond her age. We expect to hear more of this young writer in the coming years.
Also attending was author Nevada Harward, of the Make-A-Mix Cookbook series. We've known Nevada for many years, and I was privileged to work with her in the Peoria Unified School District. She graciously endorsed Charlie's Girl, and had a great suggestion for promoting our novel through book clubs, which we would reach mostly by word of mouth from readers.
So if you have read and liked Charlie's Girl, please spread the word and help us share the story of Rosalind and Grace Matthews, Emily Watson, and Muriel Dobson and her irrepressible son Mark William.
And please leave comments here on our blog to express your opinions of our book.
