I am out of the office today, so I will not be able to comment, but I hope you enjoy this post.
Last Saturday, I was honored to be a part of Sarah Sundin’s launch party for Through Waters Deep. I actually ended up teaching swing dancing with the help of my amazing brother. The lesson was brief, but the students were really quick to learn the steps and everyone had fun! Sarah did a reading, signed books, and mingled with her friends and fans. There was a very large crowd and the bookstore manager told me after the party that she was very happy with how the party went. A successful event for all!
It’s funny how my dance lesson time came to be. Sarah was already planning to have her launch party at a Barnes & Noble near her home, and while we were discussing the party on a marketing call with the publishing house, the publicist said two or three times, “Sarah, I wish you knew someone who could teach swing dancing at your party.” I was quietly debating if I should say anything about knowing swing because I did teach swing as a junior instructor more than FIFTEEN(!!!) years ago. I finally told them of my hidden and unused talent and volunteered my brother to help me to teach at the party. Everyone was happy–except for my brother, but he got over it and enjoyed the lesson. 🙂
Here are some pictures and videos from the event:
