2012 London Book Festival Award Ceremony!
On January 24, 2013 my husband and I went to London to the British Library for the London Book Festival awards. My book, ‘When Mars Women Date’ was the winner for How-To books. It was wonderful to meet fellow authors who came from Malaysia, Mexico, India, California, Texas and more. It was fun to hear the back stories to their books and to share in their journey in getting them out into the world. Here’s a video that my husband took of my award acceptance speech.
We also had two days to explore London and saw Buckingham Palace, went to Harrods for high tea, visited Abbey Road (ala The Beatles), stopped by Parliament, Big Ben, the London Eye and more.
It was special to have my book honored and to get away together, a week before our sixth year wedding anniversary.
Hurray for London!
