Absolutely brilliantly! It was so much fun – we had a fabulous time chatting with people, some who were already friends, some who were strangers (but we hope are now friends, too!)
There were some marvellous synchronicities – our very first ‘guest’ was a lovely lady who’s written a book containing … yes, you’ve guessed it – crystals! Her novel’s heroine is named Tiera (whereas ours is, of course, Keira) and she said she simply had to come and meet us! She brought her own novel, Dawndancer, for us to look at. We’ll certainly be checking it out! This lovely lady is also a talented artist.
The atmosphere of our space within the Tangerine Tree Cafe was warm and welcoming. Joanna had also sent Reiki and lovelight to the space ahead of time to ensure that it felt as positive and light as possible. She took a pouch of crystals along to further enhance the energy of the space. That prompted some discussion, with guests handling the crystals and talking about their own experiences.
In addition, the cakes were divine and the coffee is Ron’s favourite blend of the moment. He’s very particular about his coffee, is Ron. 😉
Our event has certainly given us the taste for meeting with more of our readers (existing and future) in person, and we’d love to do another sometime. Or two. Or three …. especially if cake is involved!
Huge thanks go to Jo’s husband, Walt, for taking the photographs, and to Ron’s wife, Mo, for graciously allowing him ‘time off’ to attend meetings and events with Jo! 🙂
If you couldn’t make the event and would like to purchase a paperback copy of The Cordello Quest, you might be interested to know that Amazon UK are currently discounting it to just £4.19. The Cordello Quest is also available online through Waterstones, The Book Depository, WHSmith, etc, if you prefer to shop elsewhere.
And for us, it’s back to writing, editing and doing what we can to raise the profile of our work! 🙂
Joanna and Ron 🙂
Fabulous Jo and Ron, knew it would go well. Hope it’s the first of many! xxx
Thanks, Shani, I’m sure your positive energies contributed to the day’s success! Yes, so do we! 😉 xx
I am so very excited to know how much fun you had!!! I knew it would go well, but to have so many synchronicities also!!! How exciting!!!!! Much love, my friend!
To also have the synchronicities right from the beginning was also a wonderful way for us to start! Truly magical. Thanks for commenting, Kristin. 🙂 xxx
So pleased it went well, i think it’s really brave to do an event. I did an impromptu mini signing at the end of my writing class but nothing ‘official’ yet, it looked like you had a lovely time. Here’s to more signings xx
Thank you, Yasmin! I don’t like crowds, so this venue was great for us as it had a friendly feel, and the town has a great vibe anyway. Here’s to MANY more signings, and to the readers and friends we haven’t yet met! xx
Woohooo I’m so thrilled that it went well ~ not that I ever had any doubt whatsoever ~ and that you had a great time. The happy smiles in the photos speak volumes, thanks for sharing. Next time will be even easier! Rock on and hope to see you soon! XXX
Thanks for your confidence, Nicky! I’m more comfortable meeting new people now (thankfully!) so it really was fun and not painful! 🙂 We’ll let you know if / when we come up to sign near Lincoln!! xxxx
Crystals have such an amazing effect – handling them is always a surprise, as some feel warm and others feel cold. You know when you have the ‘right’ stone for you in your hand! I’m thrilled for you both that this event went so well. Ron – I’m another coffee-holic and proud! Every step forward is positive and sending Reiki and lovelight to the space ahead of time? Inspired! Lxx
I totally agree, Linn – and the energy emitted from some stones is quite staggering! Lovely to know you’re on the same wavelength. 🙂 So sorry I missed your Facebook event launching ‘Ceri’s Journey: Angels’ yesterday but we were out until late, and my husband and I didn’t get home until a couple of hours ago! I will pop in now!
Lovely to see you here; thanks for commenting. 🙂
