Gifted Book Release Party

The Release Party for Gifted was a great success. We had about 200 people come, in spite of a blizzard. Thanks to Shannon and Marsha for hosting the party and to all the family and friends who provided food. You wouldn't have believed the spread of food.
Veronica, Savannah and Kayla sold books.

Marsha and Shannon kept the food stocked and managed the give-aways--A jar of M&Ms and two See's gift certificates.

My husband and neighbor both gave me flowers. Luckily, they looked beautiful together.

Julie Higginson shared an excerpt from the book and then I answered questions. There is no picture of me answering questions because I've discovered that when I talk, my face becomes distorted.
The house was wonderful. Such a great place to host a large group.

It was great to see old friends, neighbors, lots of family and even some people I didn't know.

Travis was a combination of host, babysitter and errand runner. He'd just come in from the blizzard.
My girls with Aunt Leslie, the official party photographer. She did a great job. The only thing she didn't do that I'd requested, was make me look tall and thin. Oh well, I'm sure she did her best.

It was a wonderful evening and Gifted is officially released! If you don't have yours yet, you can get it at or come and see me at the Lehi Costco on Saturday. I'll be there from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. so stop by, pick up a book and say hello.

Are you coming to the West Bountiful Costco? (I'm Lisa's friend and I've been waiting to read your book!)

Hopefully you'll see this. I don't schedule the Costco signings. They get picked for me. I've requested the Bountiful Costco, so I hope it happens. Of course, if you get the book, we can make sure you get it signed if you want. (I feel so silly even saying that.)

Thanks for your interest in the book! I so appreciate it.
