Big Day

Yesterday was a big day for me.  It marked the release of Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades of Grey and my debut as a published essayist.  I am so honored to be a part of this project and to be included with such a fantastic group of writers.  

It is a pretty proud moment to see your name on the cover of a book for the first time.

Did you find me?  Did you find me?

I'm doing a signing at Fairport Library on Dec 1st and will have copies available for sale.  Here's more on that:

It's all a little surreal.  Above all I feel so proud and so blessed, and I'll be happy to autograph your copy.  ;)
