Many, many thanks to the crowd that filled all available chairs in The Next Chapter bookstore last Saturday night.

Many thanks to John and Sharon Connell for being such generous, gracious hosts there.

Thanks to all who listened while I shared the story behind Auralia’s Colors, and read Chapter One.

Thanks to the heckler who stood across the street from the store and shouted at me.

Thanks to my parents for driving all the way from Portland, Oregon. And for teaching me to read and write. And for burying me in books.

Thanks to everyone who bought a copy of Auralia’s Colors there. I’m getting better and better at signatures all the time, thanks to all of that practice.

Thanks to everyone who attended The Kindlings Muse last night, where I talked with Dick Staub, Greg Wright, and Jennie Spohr about fantasy, faith, and imagination. (The podcast will be posted soon!)

Thanks to everyone who attended, wined, dined, and asked questions after the discussion.

Thanks to Dick Staub and Jennie Spohr for organizing such a stimulating event.

Thanks to everyone who purchased books there as well. It was a pleasure to meet you all.

Now… on to the biggest event of all… the Third Place Books release party for Auralia’s Colors, this Saturday at 6:30 p.m., in the Lake Forest Park Towne Centre in north Seattle.

I hope I’ll see you there!
