The Best Book Launch Ever
The launch party for SPLIT exceeded all my expectations. It also surprised the University Book Store. I now hold the record for most books sold at a launch party at the Bellevue store. Hooray for me, but even bigger cheers for all the folks who attended and bought copies. Thank you all! And a special thanks to friends who took the pictures above. Gordon, Doug, Jim, Kate and Mary Ann.
It didn’t hurt a bit that the book is absolutely beautiful. I’m so thankful for my cover designer Kathy, who did a great job. And I highly recommend IngramSpark. Their printed product is first rate.
Thanks everyone for making this another magical moment for me. It was so gratifying, as an author, to look out at a room overflowing with friends who love me and people interested in my topic.
Rather than yammering on myself about how fabulous the party was, I think I’ll turn the stage over to a few folks who sent inspiring notes about the evening.
Dear Mary, here are some shots from your gala, moving reading last night, thank you so much for inviting me, I was touched by your story and am touched by your friendship.
I’m so glad I came to the book launch. Of course there were many difficult things to address but you did so with aplomb.
Wow! Over a hundred people came to to hear mi esposa, Mary Dispenza, read from her just released memoir. David Clohessy, national director of SNAP, came from St. Louis to introduce her. Congratulations, Mary!
