Today I Feel As If I Just Won The Oscars!

October 7th, 2009—finally! WOOHOO—LAUNCH DAY!!!!!

Today, I feel as though I’ve just won the Oscar and I am standing in front of a room full of beautiful people, but instead of holding the little statue of the bald, golden man—I’m proudly holding a copy of my novel, ANGEL OF WINDWORD, in my hand.

This is wonderful! The best part is that I can speak all I want and not have the sound of music interrupting me in the background when they feel I’ve been talking too long. Also, here in cyber space, Kanye West is not around to interrupt me!

Ofcourse, I look great in my Carolina Herrera gown and having lost those 21 pounds which I’ve been trying to lose for 10 years, I’ve never looked better. After I thank, my grandmother, who is now in Heaven, but that was an avid reader of romance, my mother, my sisters, my nieces, my cousins, my friends and dedicate the night to my husband and two children, who are sitting in the crowd and staring at me with wonder and love in their eyes, I acknowledge the presence of my wonderful colleagues, who are sharing the spotlight today: Mary Corrales, Roxanne Rhoads, Teel James Glenn, Shelley Dayton, Graeme S. Houston, Heather Kuehl and A.J. Ryan!

After much applause, I continue, “I want to thank the authors and readers of Eternal Press, the loveliest people I’ve ever encountered. I feel proud to be amongst you guys! I would like to thank Ally Robertson for making all this possible. I would like to thank Candace Clayton for being such a great mediator; Dianna Rubino for being such a great editor; Adrienne Morris, the wonderful copyeditor, for all her hard work on Angel of Windword, and Sheryl for all of her promotional work on my behalf! I would especially like to thank Amanda Kelsey for the most beautiful cover art I’ve ever seen! I couldn’t be happier with my cover. Last but certainly not least, I would like to thank Lisa Logan. Lisa, I’ll be “eternally” grateful to you for making me a published author!”

After enjoying the standing ovation, I walk away with Sean Connery. (This may date me a little, but I still think that he is the sexiest man alive!)
