The Universe delivers the best surprises! The four event road trip we’d planned for the last weekend of July turned in to seven memorable stops! We began with an unscheduled visit to Mosaic Books on Bernard Street in Kelowna, and we are happy to announce that One Great Year is now available on their shelves! Check back for an upcoming event!
Our first market was in the picturesque Naramata B.C. with a table on the lakeshore and a strong, warm evening wind whipping things up! In the first 15 minutes, 15 new ‘One Great Year readers’ had snapped up their personalized copies. It was a blur of sunny smiling faces and there were two and a half hours to go! The big feature photo of us in the Penticton Herald earlier that day definitely got us noticed!
We continued to enjoy the market and were thrilled to meet Deborah Linton, editor of My Naramata News, who was kind enough to later write an article about us. http://www.mynaramata.com/show4252a/One_Great_Year_At_The_Market
Thursday, we cruised along Hwy 97, in awe of the majestic rock cliffs that led us to Oliver. There we were interviews by the lovely Erin Christie of the Oliver Chronicle Newspaper, while we enjoyed the morning and evening market in Lions Park.
Our deepest gratitude to Penticton’s Hooked on Books owner Judy Zubriski for hosting a POD Party™ in her beautiful store and to all of those who attended and shared in the fascinating discussion! We learn so much from our wonderful attendees and their experiences. Over and over people are telling us “this book came right at a time in my life when I really needed it.” WOW! We are happy that One Great Year is resonating with people, and that entertainment can still make people think at the same time.
Saturday morning we returned to The Downtown Penticton Market. This is a HUGE event, with plenty of locals, tourists and friendly vendors. It’s a great opportunity for us to chat with readers and more and more people are coming looking specifically for One Great Year. We loved hearing all of your stories , thank you for sharing!
By Sunday, we should have been heading home, but instead we took a detour and found ourselves at another beautiful lakeside market in Peachland, where we met people from all over the world. The second Edition of One Great Year is off to one great START! Thank you all for purchasing your copy and remember, send your reviews and tell your friends! ENJOY THE JOURNEY!
