New Book Release Party!!!

The official book release party for "Falling for Lies" was held on Saturday, October 21, at the McLean Community Center in Tallahassee, Florida. Four other authors were invited to speak: Marilynn Griffith (Jade, Pink and Made of Honor), Juanita E. Thomas (Just a Thought and On Second Thought), Gladys Gikiri (My Malaika), and Max Parker, Jr.(Just ?s). The well attended event was hosted by my longtime friend, Debbie Williams, who did a fabulous job providing commentary and introductions. Pastor Catherine Wright, the newest author to sign with Amani Publishing, was also in the audience asking questions of each speaker. Lynette Brown modeled her African attire and did a special reading from the first chapter "Falling for Lies" that captivated everyone's attention. Last but not least, after each author had spoken about their publishing experiences, we pulled names for door prizes, signed books, ate cake, and sipped punch. Overall, I was very pleased with the turnout for this literary event. Hopefully, the next one, scheduled for February 1st for the "Sweetheart" anthology will be just as sweet...

Congrats on the signing. Glad that it was a success...
 
That's wonderful! Reading about your event reminded me of my book release party for Only True Love Waits in October 2006. Since the book is a romantic suspense, the theme was love and romance. The facility was decorated like a wedding reception.

I'm sure the "Sweethearts" release will be equally as fabulous. I noticed that Deborha Parham was a contribuiting writer in your anthology. I had the honor of working with her on The Midnight Clear: Stories of Love, Hope and Inspiration anthology.

I wish you continued success. Peace and Blessings.

Author of "Only True Love Waits"
