My end of the Summer A Rose Forever Thorned book signing was a success. I totally did not expect those who came and the support was out of this world. I’m a bit surprised at myself at how comfortable I was at greeting those who not only came to support me but those who came out to the 4th Friday Wine & Cheese to enjoy some light bites, cocktails and music. Nervous? Yes because I’m so not an in your face type of girl but it all went well. A few of my family members came out to show their love and support for my special day. My heart was glad to see faces of support and knowing that I have people in my corner rooting me on makes me believe in myself all the more.

I saw Ms. Jackie at a Singles 2016 event a few weeks ago and she said she was coming. I looked up from my table and who’s walking in the door Ms. Jackie LOL!. People don’t know how big of a smile they’ve put on my face that night. I work so hard behind the scenes making any way that I can out of no way and it feels so good to know that there are people who actually care and support me in all that I do.

I wish I could have snapped a picture with all who supported A Rose Forever Thorned but I was so busy signing and thanking all those who stopped by my table. Big SHOUT OUT! To those who won the giveaways from my raffle. It was nice to give away some free stuff and to see the smile on people’s faces when they receive free stuff too LOL. All of my friends and associates weren’t able to make but that’s okay there will be other dates to support and many other talents to love.
I’m forever grateful to those who came to my first book signing this past Friday July 22, 2016 at Indigo Bleu in Philadelphia, PA I had some very special visitors from a few folks I grew up with. I wasn’t nervous I was just pretty much open to the experience of my very first book signing. It’s not easy being transparent and to be able to share a deep emotional story, especially if it’s your own story. I healed in the process of writing my memoir and I learned so much about myself and can see who I am actually becoming and it’s phenomenal. For all those who haven’t had the chance to purchase a copy here’s your chance to download a copy for FREE kindle version A Rose Forever Thorned. Promo ends 7.29.16 (12AM EST.)

Lisa and I grew up together! And I’m glad she hung out for a bit with me at my very first signing.
Derrick and I also grew up together and he stopped by to show me some love.
My mentor, the woman who has taught me a lot these past 5 years. I have grown in so many ways because of her.
As we travel along the road to our destiny, life will throw at us many challenges and teach us hard lessons.

Not many are able to withstand the impact of life’s challenges and understand the lessons given.Strength comes when we go through some of the most trying times in our lives so that we’ll be able to hold our heads held high and walk Life’s Runway.
