Hi there. My trip out west to all the festivals was amazing and I met so many wonderful people. Seriously, there were so many wonderful people: The festival organizers, the volunteers, other authors and editors and, oh my god, the audiences! Such great audiences. You know, one of the things about writing a book like that, a memoir that touches on subjects of new parenting and addiction is that you end up meeting people who have stories to share. Many come up after readings and share some of these stories, but some just come up with the book, like the beautiful kid in Vancouver did, and pass me the book and say: Sign it to Brenda. A mom? A sister? Something else?
I still have two more events, both on Sunday for the IFOA and I’m looking forward to them. I’m looking forward to meeting more wonderful people.
