Bitter, Sweet Anniversary

Today is the same kind of gorgeous fall day it was a year ago when my family and friends all came together for the launching of Bitter, Sweet on Sunday afternoon. A lot has taken place over the past year, release of the book in the US, some pretty super reviews of the book, shortlisting for the Bilson Award, not to mention having the book go into a second printing. The memory of all those positive vibes in the community centre that day continues to fill me with an overwhelming sense of gratitude for all those who came together to help make this special, not only for me, but for the whole community of East Dalhousie.

Happy Anniversary, Bitter, Sweet!

  4. Wow! How exciting to launch your book, and then to enjoy its success! I enjoyed “Bitter, Sweet” when I read it. Happy Anniversary of your book launch, Laura…

  5. Wow, a year already. Happy anniversery.

  6. Thanks all of you! In some ways it feels as though the year flew by, but on other levels it felt as though it dragged on.

    The publication of a first novel is something that will never be repeated as is a first book launching. It’s nice to have so many wonderful memories of that day, and so great to be able to share it with my family and friends.

  7. Happy anniversary! And huge congrats on the second printing. :D

    • Thanks Shari, and congrats to you for winning first place at the WIWC writing contest in the YA category!! Exciting news for you!!

  8. Wow! A year already? It will be a year soon, then, that I met you at your book signing, hard to believe. I wish you continued success and deserved recognition. :)
