Denver Book Launch

Last week, I had a fantastic launch in the Denver Barnes and Noble Bookstore on Colorado Blvd. It was such a positive experience! The people at the store were so welcoming and it was truly a lovely store to work in! They set me up at the front and I was able to welcome customers as they walked in and as they lined up at the cash registers.

There was a coloring event being held at the store as well so, the night before, I drew a line drawing of the cover  and handed out copies. They were a great marketing tool and I will keep them for future events.

It was so special to meet my readers and to talk about the book. I had people of all ages buying it and I loved how it appealed to one woman’s husband (who loves fairies!), another woman’s daughter (who is writing a book about fairies) and the wonderful young ladies who are at the age where, they may or may not believe in fairies, but they are certainly ready to believe in themselves!

My family and friends were so supportive. I want to thank them for all the congratulations and good wishes. I came home to a real celebration with a wonderful dinner waiting complete with a “Fairy Forest Cake”!

Thank you, thank you for making my Denver launch so special! I can’t wait to do it all again in Calgary, coming up soon, and all the other launch cities in the next few months.

Come and see me at Self Connections Book Store on Saturday, December 5th from 1 – 4 or log in for the webcast!

Hello October!

Maple tree, so brilliant. It looks as happy as I do!

Life is so fun these days! I am in the last stages of publishing my novel and I am gearing up for a 6-week pre-Christmas launch! WOO HOO!

My novel, Gifts of the Crysnix, is targeted to girls, aged 8-12, but it has a message for all of us. A world of brand new heroes and villains draws us in and begs us to fight the fears that hold us back from living our best lives.

This darn novel has been collecting dust on my bookshelves in manuscript form and in the cubby holes of my mind for way too long. I had to fight my fears of judgement, rejection, failure and maybe even success in order to finally kick my butt into high gear and publish it.


Well, there is no going back now. I am on the roller coaster and headed downwards. Fast, really fun and a tiny bit out of control as my world hurls around the wild rails!! From the peak, gravity pulls me down, trying to ground me — but NOOOO — around a turn I fly and the centrifugal force pulls out a smile so big, the forces are with me to launch me into my best life and all it was meant to be.
