Wow. What a night. More than 125 people showed up for the launch of Shaping Destiny. Ted Orland was generous, kind and funny. It took everything I had not to cry after listening to his introduction and looking out at the audience from the stage.
I read from Chapter 9 of the book. Then Ted and I talked some about the creative process, self-publishing, and the intellectual components of the book. Finally, we took questions from the audience. It was a very, very powerful evening and I am so grateful for the support.
Collected Works Bookstore said it was the biggest book event they have ever had and we sold enough books to get the ball rolling. Now, only 999,922 to go to hit the 1 million sold mark!!! Well, you can’t blame me for dreaming.
In actuality, now comes the really hard part — letting the world know the book exists. I will be speaking locally over the next month. In April, I will be appearing in Tubac, Az. In May, I am trying to set up an appearance in the Colorado Springs area.
For those of you not able to be at the launch, I will be posting a video of it in a few hours.
