The official BOOK LAUNCH & SIGNING for Remember the Dragonflies: A Memoir of Grief and Healing was December 8, 2013, at The Coffee House at 2nd and Bridge in Franklin, Tennessee. It was a cold, foggy, sleety, rainy, dreary Sunday afternoon on the outside, but on the inside, it was warm and glittery and full of little Christmas lights. And books! Full of books in the Library Room.
My friend Susie Dunham decorated for the signing. She shopped and planned and put together a special dragonfly arrangement and transformed the whole room into a place of beauty and fun! Thank you, thank you, Susie, for your expertise and time!
My friend (and business manager) Judy was there to help. Thank you! My writers group was there to provide support. Thank you, Susie and Chance and Neil!
It was a momentous afternoon with new friends who came to buy a book and with old friends — even one friend I hadn’t seen since high school! Thanks for coming, Tommy!
Finally, the book is out. The words are on the page, the feelings expressed, the mission poised to accomplish. It’s a book I never wanted to write. It’s a book I was called to write. It’s a book I hope will help others.
Thanks to all of you who came and were a part of this launch! And for the rest of you, I share pictures!
Remember the Dragonflies can be ordered through WestBow Press, or at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Books-a-Million. It’s available on Kindle. It can be purchased at brick-and-mortar Barnes and Noble Cool Springs and The Old Curiosity Book Shop in Columbia. Or send me an email and I’ll sign a copy for you!
