This post is a pictorial tribute to all the people who have stopped by to chat with me at one of my events.
A reading and signing for Valentine's Day at Canada's premier office and shopping complex: First Canadian Place (the lady in red on the stage with me is First Canadian Place's personal shopper)
Signings at various retail stores, such as Chapters in Newmarket, Ontario
The constant in the above pictures and many others I have from these and similar events is the huge grin on my face. I had been bitten by the bug! People were reading my book, and every indication was that they were enjoying it.
It was enough for me to take the "plunge" and leave my full-time job and focus on writing.
My first book with Harlequin, A Child's Christmas, released on November 1st and I am delighted by the positive reaction to it already. As you can probably guess, I am thrilled and excited, and can hardly wait to receive more feedback from readers.
So what is it about writing that I love the most, and enough so to have left a job I truly enjoyed? It is knowing that there are people who chose to spend their limited and valuable leisure time reading my work. And even more so, when a reader reaches out to me to let me know they enjoyed what I wrote. Thank you so very much for enabling me to fulfil my dream!
What is your dream and do you plan to pursue it? I would love to get your comments.
I also look forward to connecting with you at an upcoming event, on my website, Twitter or Facebook.
Best wishes and happy reading!
