The first "official" launch of the second book in the Weaverworld series took place on June 21, 2014 at Brome Lake Books in Knowlton, Quebec.
This beautiful little independent bookstore is run by life partners Danny McAuley and Lucy Hoblyn. The store overlooks the Mill Pond, and when you step onto the veranda you can hear the water falling over the dam. Often their dog is sleeping behind the counter. Danny and Lucy share their duties in the store as well as the raising of their 3 boys (the eldest just graduated high school). They are very supportive of local talent, devoting a whole section in the store to CDs by local musicians.
Launching my second book, two years after the first, was an exciting time for me. Thank you to everyone who came to share the moment.
And guess who happened to drop in? International best-selling author Louise Penny, who graciously allowed herself to be photographed holding my book. (No endorsement implied!) Louise launched her first book in the Inspector Gamache mystery series right here in Brome Lake Books several years ago. She is now at work on her 11th book - and gaining new fans every day.
