A big thank you to everybody who turned up at our open house to celebrate the official launch of Plain Kate. We hosted a large gathering, including Seanan Forbes who visited from New York, to my parents, to Erin’s Hopeful Writers friends, to Rebecca, who dropped everything and came in from Stratford. Wellwishes were received from Erin’s family long distance (Rosemarie tells me that the book is in the wild in the Midwest).
We had loads of food, and we weren’t able to eat more than a fraction of it. I know what we’re having for dinner tonight. But the highlight among highlights was the cake that Nan Forler put together, which featured the cover of Plain Kate, rendered in icing.
We spent most of today recovering, not doing much, and tomorrow will be spent cleaning, so you know a good time was had by all.
I’ll have more to write about later, but for now, here’s a picture of my two daughters colouring…
