I have to admit my stomach was churning as I got ready for the launch of Daughters of Deliverance. My friend Dody helped me put invitations into cubbies here at Wind Crest. Daughter Sheila prepared the door prizes and decorated the tables. She walked into the Lounge where the Launch party was held, carrying a large bouquet of Proteas, the South Africa flower– a gift from my children. My son Mark came all the way from New York where he’d been on a business trip to celebrate with me. Two grandsons and their wives slipped in after we’d started, and my niece and her husband came. About fifty friends from Wind Crest attended.
But what really is a launch party? I’d never had one for my precious books. I finally realized it was a celebration for me.A card I received says it all:
You Worked Hard…REALLY, REALLY HARD…
Put in the hours, battled the frustrations…
Gave of your blood, sweat and tears,
And now finally it all paid off. Congratulations!
Reviews are slowly coming in on Amazon– which not only make me feel good, but hopefully will encourage you to buy and read Destined for Royalty. More about the book and the life of its heroine, Katharine Bushnell, another time. For now, I just want you to celebrate with me that the ten-year project of research and writing has finally been reached publication. You can read more about Daughters of Deliverance on Amazon’s book page.
