|Launch party at Avila University.|
I am very grateful for the outpouring of support and positive energy that has come with the release of High Maga. It’s been a wonderful ten days, both on line and in the ‘real world’. The excitement of readers, friends, family, and colleagues has been contagious; welcome medicine after what was a fairly stressful two months in bringing the book to press.
We had a great turnout for the launch party at Avila University. Hadley Rille Books editor Eric T. Reynolds was able to join us, his first foray into the outside world since a stroke took him out of commission about two months ago. I spoke a little about the inspiration behind the novel, and read several excerpts. And of course, I signed a lot of books. Unfortunately, in the excitement I forgot to record my readings, so I can’t post them here. But I’ll make up for that with some audio recordings in the coming weeks.
On Tuesday, April 15, I’m starting a blog tour with Orangeberry Book Tours. There will be book features, author interviews, excerpts and more. To see the full schedule, visit my Orangeberry Book Tour page.
This will be a short week at Avila. The university is closed on Holy Thursday and Good Friday, one of the perks of working at a Catholic institution. My husband and I will take advantage of the spring weather by heading to the Ozarks, where we hope to indulge in some well-deserved rest and recreation.
When I return, I will have a very special surprise for fans and friends of Eolyn.
Until then, enjoy Eolyn’s new adventure!
