I want to give a big shout out to all of my peeps for coming to see me on Friday night and being a part of my celebration. Unfortunately, I planned it the same weekend as Comic Con (unbeknownst to me) and lost a few casualties; however, it was still a magnificent event.
It was a simple and elegant evening. My friend Tracy and I arrived about ten minutes past 8 and there were already a few people there. My friend Ian had driven in from Riverside with his new girlfriend, Tammy. I had never met her...and she is just absolutely delightful. A real knock out. I think Ian has definitely found a keeper. Goran and Jeremy were there. I was excited because I had met these two a few weeks before at a Smoking Cocktail event....and Jeremy and I had managed to stay in touch.....Jeremy is a delightful man who is here from France learning English.
Well as the night progressed more people showed up, including the graphic designer Armin and his wife. A lovely couple. So many people wanted to meet him as they were impressed with the cover this second time around.
So, drinks were had....laughter ensued...and fun was aplenty.
And that was how I celebrated the second edition release of Swimming the Storm.
