This week my happiness is extra special! This past Wednesday was the Readers for Life Literacy Autographing at the Romance Writers of America national convention in Atlanta, Georgia. (Affectionately referred to as Hotlanta!)
Though I was thrilled to be sandwiched in between Cherry Adair and Victoria Alexander, I was a little worried about getting lost with their long lines on either side of me. It ended up not mattering because both ladies were so wonderful that I didn’t care!
Cherry especially made my night unforgettable. That woman is my new hero. She realized early on that as a new author, I wasn’t going to have a vast amount of people screaming for my autograph. LOL. But bless her New York Times Bestselling heart, she ordered me to stuff MY flyers into HER books and she plugged me to almost every reader who asked for her autograph. How can you not love that?!!
I was so grateful that I might have gone a little overboard when I offered her my first born. Of course, my 16 year old daughter probably wouldn’t be thrilled to hear that, but Cherry graciously declined so my kid is safe. <G> I can’t wait to pay Cherry’s kindness to me forward. I can only aspire to her success and hope to be in a position to help a new author who just needs a little plug.
I’m still riding my Cherry high three days later.
How about you? Has someone you ever admired done something extra special for you?
