Fun Times in Texas!

My husband, John Pisiona and I left for Texas on September 4th. My first event was at a book signing in Ft. Worth at the University Park Village Barnes & Noble store on the 5th. So many dear friends I made while Deborah was dying came to support me. I was honored to have my brother-in-law Ron Hall with me. I had an opportunity to do my first reading from my book!

The next afternoon one of my dear friends from Snyder, TX where we grew up had a beautiful get together so I could meet many of her friends.

On the 7th I had my next book signing in Dallas at the Barnes & Noble on W Northwest Freeway. Again Ron and family were there to support me.

Bob and Anne Snelling had a book signing on the 8th at their beautiful home in Frisco. My husband and I were made to feel so special.

Andrea Taylor, who co-authored and published “Our Southern Breeze” and her husband Jerry, had an open house for John and me on the 9th. I was able to meet her precious family and several friends that I missed seeing at my book launch in Dallas when I had emergency surgery!  She is a big Starbucks “girl” and had each person autograph a coffee mug for a keepsake!

The evening of the 9th several dear friends hosted a dinner for John and me at a wonderful Mexican food restaurant. Not all of Deborah’s close friends could make it but seeing so many people she loved was truly a blessing. It thrills me to hear that our voices are identical. What as honor to have been chosen by God to be her twin sister.

On the 10th I was off to Austin and John left for Atlanta.

Sue and Ken Langston opened their home for me to stay until the 15th. My final book signing was at the Arboretum Barnes & Noble store. Many of my dear friends from years ago were there to celebrate with me. It was a wonderful evening.

The remainder of the books in each store were autographed and displayed to be sold.  Those two weeks were filled with memories I will never forget.

Fort Worth Barnes and Noble

Last night I had my first book signing at Barnes & Noble and we sold 43 books! I signed over 20 books that have been placed in the front of the store and hope by Sunday to have 50 total sold at that store. I would like to thank Mark Brown for his wonderful help in making it a success!
