Well, it’s a strange time to launch a book, isn’t it? I’ll be honest. Book publication days are typically mostly normal work days for me, anyway. Because a book launch party doesn’t usually happen on the publication day itself, the day itself is kind of anti-climactic, you know? But we usually go out for a meal or a treat to make some official marking of the day.
This year, with Secrets of the Loon, all the in-person events have, of course, been canceled. We knew that weeks ago. But with restaurants closed, too, we also knew there would be no special treat or meal out. And it was cloudy, gray, and rainy all day. I usually enjoy such weather, but it kind of felt like the clouds spitting in my face. (I know–wallowing here.) And here was my pub day treat:
Luckily, my mood kicked itself out after a couple of hours! Here’s my poem from yesterday.
Thank you, family and friends, for making my publication day special :>)
