To Penelope, From Penelope
Yesterday was full of firsts. It was my first Gaithersburg Book Festival. The GBF is huge! It features many accomplished, world renowned authors every year, and there I was amongst the greats with my little ol' debut novel, dressed to the nines. Ok, so not the dressed up part, but hey, it was 50 degrees and rained all day- still had a great time!
I took my first credit card transaction. Woo-hoo! If a lack of cash has been stopping you from picking up a copy of INSPIRALED, then fret no more, plastic is fantastic.
I tried my first Nothing Bundt Cake and was swept away to my own private heaven made of nothing but rich, decadent, fudgy, chocolate magnificence. I temporarily forgot where I was and that my wet toes had become numb...all that mattered was another bite of that cake. If you haven't tried one yet, stop what you're doing and go get some Nothing Bundt Cake!
Finally, my last first of the day was my signing of a book to a beautiful lady named Penelope! Yes, it was to Penelope from Penelope. I hope my first Penelope keeps in touch.
The Gaithersburg Book Festival was full of warm, energetic book lovers (except for the one lady that said she didn't like to read when we asked her what genre of books she likes. What the...???) and I had an absolute fabulous time making new friends and bonding over our favorite books (and cakes), even though it was a little chilly. I can hardly wait for next year's GBF!
Don't like to read but still enjoy a good story? Listen to INSPIRALED instead! It's easy and can be free at audible.com
