TUESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2008

Holy Publishing Toledo!

My launch date has finally arrived!

Welcome to the world I So Don't Do Mysteries!

Welcome to the world Sherry Holmes Baldwin!

In real life, I'm having coffee with a really really good friend who delayed her flight back home in order to spend this launch morning in a coffee shop with me. After coffee, we'll wander over to the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore who have absolutely promised to display I So Don't Do Mysteries out on a shelf so that my friend can buy a copy and I can sign it. My very first signing!

You might remember this friend who was little too candid when it came to my author photos. All, joking aside, she's great.

And then this evening, I have a signing with a couple of other mystery writers at Warwick's. Followed by drinks with some friends.

It's going to be quite the day!

Also...the Class of 2k8 is hosting a surprise cyber party for me. A least, they think it's a surprise. They forget that I have four children, three of whom are teenage boys. It's not easy to get one over one me. Please pop over for a visit if you've got a sec.

But first, check out my book trailer. It brings tears to the eyes. It's that cute. If the video isn't working on the screen below, you can check it out at YouTube

And.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTER!!.

Congratulations Barrie, celebrate well!

Now the mystery is, where's the book trailer? The link I found took me to Amazon.

Barrie said...

Larramie, just noticed your comment as I race out the door. Do you not have a little screen at the bottom of today's post? If yes, that's the book trailer/video. Click on the arrow in the middle of the screen for play. Oh dear. I hope it's working. Sometime what looks fine on my mac is not fine on my pc and I don't have time to check...

Christine Mercer-Vernon said...

hey barrie, just wanted to let you know i had the same problem....i discovered it wasn't showing the video in my feed reader, but when i went to your actual blog it was there. weird computer gnomes...

Beth Yarnall said...
