The official launch of my book took place recently at one of the homes featured in the book – the Bell Residence. There were 30+ invited guests that sipped wine, nibbled and talked, talked and talked some more. I can’t believe that I was worried that, because so many people are from different walks of life, that they might not have anything in common!
There were authors, artists, business owners, professionals, old house owners, and some of my interior design clients. This idea of “six degrees of separation” came coming back up over and over again as people eagerly swapped stories and discussed mutual acquaintances. Our city (plus two smaller bedroom communities) has a population of about a million people but I am always amazed at how small that really is!
The book is selling well, and has made it twice on the local best seller’s list. I really want to get this book out there – to let old house owners know there is a guide that may just help them figure out how to solve a dilemma.
If you are reading this please let others know – I’d really appreciate your help. And, by the way, just because the book says “Historical Interiors of Alberta, it does not mean that it can’t help you even if you live somewhere else…
