My Brother in law and his beautiful wife, my sister in law threw me a celebration gathering in honor of becoming published.
That is just about the nicest thing I can think of lately and I'm so Thankful for it.
To help celebrate we had free flowing bubbly, (not so free to my brother in law but very much appreciated by me) and beautiful pastries, tarts, cakes and pies.
In addition to this wonderful gesture, I've heard from a few people who read The Christmas Snow Ball and they tell me that they really liked my story. Even if they were being nice, it was still great to hear.
