Husband and I came home from an impromptu Starbucks date (I know, it isn't proper coffee, but that was our only choice) this evening and found a box on the doorstep. I gasped and spilled at least a quarter of my tall triple shot latte over my hand as I toddled toward the box like Boo from Monsters, Inc.
"BOOOOOOOOOKSSSS!!! MY BOOKS ARE HERE!!"
From the desk of Lesley Clark:
This week I am so excited to bring to you my dear friend, Bella Bryce. I met her a couple of years ago face to face at a conference. She was a delight and very much like the person that I had met through social media. Then, For my birthday this year, my hubby sent me to a tea in Virginia that she was hosting, and she invited me into her home without a second thought. It was an adventure where I attended my first fancy tea (and I actually liked it), and I got to have cheese toast for the very first time. Trust me when I tell you that if she ever offers to make it for you, it will not be long before you are begging for more! If you like to read something of substance with a different twist on the normal, you will love her work. I know that I do!
This past weekend I hosted a little event in Richmond that was open to anyone who wanted to come. I reserved a table for afternoon tea at The Jefferson hotel a month in advance and I think we had the best table overlooking the grand staircase. There were two authors (myself included), two readers (and one who will soon have her own first book finished!) as well as the CEO of Blushing Books and her assistant. One reader drove twelve hours, another drove five and a half, and the rest of us were somewhat local.
Some of us were meeting for the first time whilst others were reconnecting after months of not seeing each other. There was plenty to talk and laugh about, and even more food and tea to consume. Most of us were rolling out of the Jefferson by the time we finished.
I like you. Here's my email address.
