Dallas Launch Events

One of the unexpected pleasures of working with the copy editor on my book was receipt of the Style Sheet, a document summarizing the editorial conventions to be followed in preparing my text for publication.  Included were explanations of my usage, “narrative is colloquial, may not always be strictly grammatical” (thankyouverymuch), a list of ironic labels I enjoyed seeing all in one place, and a roll of place names and proper names that, when presented in such a businesslike manner, seemed oddly real, like seeing my children dressed up for Easter brunch.  On March 29, I will celebrate the birth of My Jane Austen Summer and welcome my 57 new fictional characters into the world, including:  Lily, Willis, Vera, Nigel, Omar, Magda, Archie, Bets, Gary, Lady Weston, Randolph and Pippa, one cat, one dog, and all the others I spent five years wrangling into a plot.  

Please join this book birthday celebration at either of two launch events to be held in Dallas.  Here is your formal invitation:

    Cindy, I am considering coming to Dallas for your tea but I had better check with your mother. Can you hold a place for me until we see? I read all the books you recommended because I was running oput while in the VI and away from my book reviews. Love, Aunt Peggy

  2. How exciting Cindy! Two book launches? I am pea green and wishing you were just around the corner so I could come and support another debut author. Please take lots of pictures. All my best wishes – and congrats to you! Well done.
