How did it turn out? I think these photos tell the story.
|Rick Ochocki was the first to arrive. And yes, I wore the tiara (and I thought of Tameri Etherton, who couldn't attend).|
|I get by with a little help from my friends. Dot Caffrey held the mic so I could read.|
|Dino came to the party. Everyone wanted a photo op with him - even PJ Colando and Garrett Miller. |
Garrett, BTW, took most of these shots.
|Pina Bell needed an autograph - of course I obliged!|
|As usual, I was moving around too fast to get a steady photo.|
|My lovely and talented assistant, Cristina, took over the book sales - she was phenomenal!|
|MOST of the folks who came - I was so overjoyed! Thanks, Garrett, for this shot!|
|Me and The Boy.|
My only regret is that no one captured Marcus and his smokin' hot combo du jour on video - they were so damned good, everyone was throwing money and compliments at them.
|Right to left: Donghee Kim, Mark the Bassist, Marcus the Sonny-boy. They were AMAZING.|
And now that the book is out in the world, onward to bookstore signings, library events, and more!
