As I mentioned this morning, today was the official release day for EVERYBODY LOVES EVIE. I've been so nutso busy that I sort of lost track of that fact until I was driving to work this morning. Then I realized, today is February 1. The day. A special day. Yet here I was heading into the library for a normal work day.
I put it out of my head and business went as usual until about 10:45am. My boss, branch director, Sue Wick, strolled in saying, "Special delivery!" Beth (the other Beth) and Denise gathered around and they all congratulated me on the release of EVERYBODY LOVES EVIE! The special delivery was a cake with the cover of ELE somehow painted on! It was from all of my co-workers at the Brigantine Library and I have to say I was extremely touched. My special day was now truly special. Thankfully we took pictures, because let me tell you we are all sweet lovers, so it's not like the cake was going to stay in tact for long!
I'm blessed to be working with such kind and supportive people. People who love books as much as me. Shouting out to Sue, Beth, Alicia, Lesa, Denise, Jean Marie, Doris, and Taylor.... Thank you!!!!
