Announcing the Winner…

Last night I spoke at Odyssey Books in South Hadley, where I met Peggy, who has been following my blog for a while now. I love comments from “the regulars” on my blog, because I feel I get to know you. Last night was the icing on the cake for me, when I met Lynn for real, not just virtually. She was in this area visiting, so she made it to my appearance. She pulled the name for the winner of the Little Village Giveaway. 

The name she pulled was Lynn Kimmerle

Congratulations, Lynn. I’ll make arrangements with you about how/when I get those to you. And thank you to everyone who reviewed my book. I appreciate all the help I get in getting the word out about my book.

Peggy is a kindhearted person. I knew that from her comments on my blog, but meeting her made that real. Peggy, I hope you don’t mind, but I am going to post a few pictures here of you and me…

Lynn, who plays Scrabble at the same club as I do. 

Professor Nina Scott, who I know through Amherst College, introduced me.

The audience at the Odyssey, of about 30 people, was wonderful last night. People asked good questions (the Q&A is fast becoming my favorite part.)  And the events coordinator at the Odyssey, Sophia, is a charm. I came away feeling energized and happy that my book is doing well out in the book world.

Today I will be speaking at Storrs Library in Longmeadow, Massachusetts. I look forward to it!

  1. What a great time last night! The trip was definitely worth it on many fronts. It’s been a long time since my mother-in-law and I had a girls night out (thanks to my husband who stayed with Dad) and spending time with her cousin and listening to them reminisce was super but the icing on the cake was meeting you last night!

    I had a few questions, too, but felt it was more important for others to be heard since I can have your undivided attention here on the blog :-) I’m glad someone took pictures and we will also be “apearing” on my blog as well!

    Mom is looking forward to reading your book but she will have to wait…not long, though, because once I pick it up, I won’t be able to put it down!

    I think it’s funny that you were the one to choose a name for Lynn and then I end up choosing her name for you!

    Saloma, in person you are just as you write! We were like old friends who had just met, don’t you think? Perhaps we’ll meet again!

  2. Dear Saloma, I’ve been reading your blog, but I must have missed this entry about my name being pulled as the contest winner! That is so fun! I don’t think I’ve ever won anything before.

    I hope all of your Q&A’s have been as interesting as they were at Mendham Books.
