Welcome to my Book Tour Diary for THE BALANCE PROJECT. This is where I’ll be documenting all the wonderful events I will be participating in to launch my second novel THE BALANCE PROJECT.
BOOK TOUR DIARY: EVENT #1—Junior League of Richmond 70th Annual Book & Author Event
I am so thrilled to have been included in this event which is filled with history and tradition for the Junior League of Richmond, VA. Every year they invite a handful of writers to share their work. It’s a packed two days filled with interesting events, wonderful southern hospitality, and books! I was honored to be in such esteemed company of authors Marisa de los Santos (THE PRECIOUS ONE), Elizabeth Berg (THE DREAM LOVER), Kristen Miglore (FOOD 52 GENIUS RECIPES), and Marc Peyser and Timothy Dwyer (HISSING COUSINS).
TUESDAY, APRIL 28
What a great way to kick off Launch Day for THE BALANCE PROJECT. After a quick flight from La Guardia, I arrived in Richmond where I was met by Kathy Knollman who was my driver for the few days I was there. Kathy volunteers her time each year to do this and she said it has been interesting getting to know different authors over the years. She said I was her favorite. Not really. I mean not really that she said that. Not not really that I wasn’t her favorite. She dropped me at the Jefferson Hotel which is a truly beautiful hotel in downtown Richmond. I highly recommend it. I settled in and enjoyed my swag: delicious chocolates from Gearharts Fine Chocolates, flowers, a personalized cookie, and welcome information. Then I headed over to the Mayo-Carter House. The Junior League has its headquarters in this historic and beautiful house. I met a few of the volunteers and signed books and a poster for the sponsors.
