Oh, July! One of my favorite months of the year. This month was another blur, but an absolute blast at the same time!
On a personal level, this month held my birthday! Alex and I went to Concord, NH for a stop at the bookstore and dinner. It was a nice and quiet birthday!
We also had our baby shower this month. Alex and I did an open house shower so people could come to us whenever they were free during the allotted time frame. I cannot believe how well this went and how much everyone spoiled us and our little one. After four years of trying, I still can’t believe this is actually happening!
Immediately after the party, I went to a book event at Water Street Bookstore to meet the amazing Paul Tremblay! While there, I got to chat with so many good author friends and meet a couple of new authors; Gregory Bastianelli, John Durgin, Gage Greenwood, Mike Sullivan, and Michael Clark. I’m kicking myself for not getting a group photo or photos with these other authors or the guest interviewer, Joe Hill! But I did snag one with Paul:
This month I also got to participate in my very first Instagram live event to honor the latest book coming out by Katherine Silva! This was an absolute blast! I loved chatting with Kat and Aquino Loayza and also seeing some friends in the chat.
To cap off the month, I got my copy of The Shrouded Tome: Ten Forgotten Fables by Ronald Kelly in the mail and got to see this in print! I still cannot believe Ron dedicated the book to me. I’m so honored!
Let’s dive in!
