J.R. Matheson and I were so honoured to have our first book signing for Shine Your Light at Manticore Books, downtown Orillia. We had a great afternoon! First of all, we were happy to share the day with local author Sherry Lawson and her new book. She made bannock from her grandmother’s recipe. It was tasty! Thank you Sherry!

We had many book lovers stop by our table and supported us, too! We thank you ever so much for your interest in the Paige Maddison Series. That is why we do what we do! We love talking to readers and those sharing the love of reading to their family members. Some surprises are in store on Christmas day 🙂

And we had many surprises. Frank Matys of Orillia Today stopped by and gave us an interview and took our photos. He may have an interesting take on the Paige Maddison Series. Also, Mehreen from The Packet and Times stopped by. She also interviewed us and took photos. Thank you to both reporters for taking the time out of your busy pre-Christmas schedule on the weekend, no less. We are truly thrilled you came by. And we had a visit from local Rogers TV and news reporter John Swartz and celebrity Deborah Wagner. John mentioned us twice in his regular column advertising the Manticore Books author signings. Thank you for the support fellow Sarnia-born native!

Next up, to our surprise, the original store owner, Don Ross, dropped in. He stocked my first novella, Wake Me Up Inside, Book One, in the series when it was released in 2012 and Destiny’s

Mr.Ross was delighted to see the best seller ribbon on the poster for Shine Your Light and that we’ve continued Paige’s journey as a Mom-Son writing team. He said what an accomplishment this is especially in today’s market. Thank you Don! We also had our dear friends, Brenda and Joe Watt, stop in. It was a very hearty conversation and lots of laughter too. Thanks for coming!

Here is the sort of weather we're having this week. We had to shovel out our driveway before attending the book signing at Manticore Books. Roads were sloshy and slippery. But we made it!

J.R. had to get special permission to attend the book signing as he was supposed to be working in the lab in Toronto. Thank you so much to Dr. Bruna Brands and Vivian for taking over J.R.’s responsibilities for the day. We cannot thank you enough. It wouldn’t have been the same without our son, my coauthor, at the first book signing for Shine Your Light. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holiday Season, and a very Happy & Healthy New Year to Everyone.
