Awed, overwhelmed, and humbled doesn't begin to describe how I was feeling at 5:30 last Saturday evening when my book launch wrapped up. The number of people who showed up at Resurrection Life Church's bookstore, The Word Shop, to support me and celebrate the launch of Mind over Madi completely blew my mind. What an amazing group of friends and family I have!
A special shoutout to my fabulous friend, Diane Loew, who set up my displays and acted as my assistant the entire time, all while working in the bookstore, and taking photos, too.
I don't know what I would have done without her.
Diane made the cookies (she used to own a cookie company!) and I also had chocolate, coffee, and water on hand. Thanks to my thoughtful step-dad, Paulie, for making the water bottle labels for me. So cute!
My uncle Jim and Aunt Carol drove over 2 1/2 hours from Clio, Michigan, to celebrate with me. And they even brought flowers!
There were three giveaways - two $10 Word Shop gift cards and one giant gift basket, filled with items from Mind over Madi, worth over $100. Attached to each item was the blurb from the book corresponding with that particular gift.
And the basket went to...my friend, Nancy DiMatteo, standing at the book table, below.
About 70 people came to my launch and bought a total of almost 50 books! WOW!
Thanks again to everyone who came out and made my launch such a wonderful and memorable day.
I am beyond blessed.
