Scenes from a St. John’s Book Launch

My Book Signing Event was a success!

The Launch included an introduction and bio, a short author reading of an excerpt from Calmer Girls, question period, and sale and signing of books.

I wish to bestow a huge thank-you to everyone who took time out of their Saturday to attend. It meant the world to me. Several of you even drove from out of town to be there, and for that I am forever grateful. ❀

I also wish to thank Jewel S. Cousens, B.A., M.L.S., NL Librarian with the A.C. Hunter Public Library, Arts & Culture Centre, for all of her valuable assistance, as well as her insight and suggestions for future promotions. Ms. Cousens was happy to tell us that interest in Newfoundland and Labrador books has grown in recent years and continues to grow.

Special appreciation to my husband and family for everything you did to make this past weekend one I will never forget.

I hope you enjoy the photos and the slide show I’ve shared below.

      1. I’ve sometimes had to make speeches and presentations in the past, and I’ve always found it extremely nerve-racking beforehand!

        Usually, once I’d been talking for a few minutes, I found I’d used up all my supply of adrenaline and I began to relax, although I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I every enjoyed it.

        You’re welcome for the follow, by the way. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! I think my years with the Girl Guides helped: living by the motto “Be Prepared”. Otherwise I would have been a nervous wreck. I was surprised I wasn’t more anxious, actually! πŸ˜€


  1. We were happy to get out to see you and to buy your book that you signed for us. Mom and Bev really enjoyed it as well. It is too bad we missed Uncle Clarence and Aunt Joyce. Nice pics that you posted of the event. [😊] All the best Jen, xoxoxo

    1. Aunt Joyce and Uncle Clarence were there waiting with the librarian when I arrived! So nice to see them. And of course I was delighted to see all of you there. Your mom was the icing on the cake!
      Thanks again for all of your support. πŸ™‚ ❀
