There are few words to describe our feelings about the outpouring of love and wonderfulness that was Going Gypsy: One Couple’s Adventure from Empty Nest to No Nest at All‘s release party.
So, very unlike our wordy selves, we shall let pictures say the thousand words. As if a thousand words could ever be enough.
From the instant we entered the Library Hotel, we felt like we were visiting an old friend.
The reception desk at Library Hotel!
The party added to that comfortable feeling, as well as giving us the opportunity to meet a bunch of new friends.
Dan Battaglia from Audible, Jay Cassell of Skyhorse Publishing and Jenny Pierson, our editor/hero (click here to get just a tiny glimpse into what she puts up with whilst dealing with us)
We want to thank Skyhorse Publishing, Tony Lyons, and Jay Cassell for taking a chance on a crazy story like ours.
And our editor, Jenny, who rescued us from Unknown Writer’s Purgatory, raved about us to her bosses, championed our ridiculous ideas and held our hands as we baby stepped our way into the publishing process. Actually, she is still holding our hands.
Meghan Walker of Tandem Literary, our publicist
<–Caught on camera! Veronica signs her very first book! Not gonna lie, it felt rather awesome!
Meghan promised to crawl through windows for us, no matter how small the opening. She proved to be more agile than we ever could have dreamed.
We’d also like to thank everyone who agreed to let us write about them in our wacky way. You are good sports.
We had some real characters in attendance, including…
Author and playwright, Arthur Wooten converses with Indy Stewart, Veronica’s dad (G-Pa Larry in Going Gypsy). Thanks Arthur for taking the time out from rehearsals for your current play to spend time with us! (here’s what Arthur had to say about Going Gypsy and our party!)
Sundance veteran and creator of the fabulously funny web series, The Louise Log, Anne Flournoy joined us! (click here for Anne’s thoughts on our release party – thanks Anne!)
The always elegant Janet Neal of the Superb Woman made an appearance! (Veronica will appear on her show in May!)
Dr. Susan Meyer and actress Susanna Baddiel
Photographer Dan Zukowski (this man gets WAY too close to polar bears for a living!)
We got to catch up with Zell Watson of Anglophiles United!
Alice Henry Whitmore, aka Lutheran Liar
Harvey of H-Bomb’s Worldwide Karaoke
Richard Eisenberg of Next Avenue and Mary Dell Harrington of Grown and Flown also made it to the Library Hotel, but we somehow didn’t end up with pictures of them. :0 (Really, really, they were there!)
Thanks to all in attendance and thanks to all of you for coming along on our wild adventure!
David and Veronica, proud authors of Going Gypsy: One Couple’s Adventure from Empty Nest to No Nest at All
