Yesterday, I received the first shipment of books from the printer. These are the copies I will be selling from my booth in the Art on the Green section of Arlington Town Day.
Before they even arrived, a neighbor of mine called me and asked if she could buy one right away. So, as soon as I had opened the boxes and confirmed the order, I invited her over, signed a copy, she paid for it and walked away happy! My very first sale!
Another friend who lives in a nearby town said he wants to drop by today and purchase a copy as well. Excellent! Tomorrow, September 14th, is the first official on-sale date, so bookstores everywhere should be able to get it for you or actually have it on their shelves. I'm excited and just a bit nervous!
I'm a social activist who still needs to pay the mortgage, eat, and do the laundry. But, more than that, I'm a love activist. I want to make life better without having to say there's anything wrong with it now.
