Many thanks to Randy Berry, and his daughter, Kira, for hosting a book signing event for The Cast Net at Books on Main this past weekend. I sold every book! The barbecue at “Pork in the Park” was splendid, and I met many wonderful Newberry residents!
The day before my book signing, I attended the Mary Alice Monroe symposium in Newberry, and found her presentation on her novel, The Butterfly’s Daughter to be inspiring. She was gracious, signing a copy of her novel, and personalizing it to my daughter, Whitney and me. Mary Alice made my day when she wished me well with my first novel, and gave me a hug! What a couple of fabulous days in Newberry, South Carolina!
