But, I'm still feeling the love from a weekend of celebration. Saturday's book launch party brought together friends and family to help us toast the publication of Determined to Matter. My publishers even came to town to meet the characters they've been reading all about!
My parents came in from Nevada for the festivities. They were proud, and I guess no matter how old you are, it still feels good to please your parents. Erin was happy and proud, too. If you can get compliments from your tween daughter, you have to consider it a pretty good night.
