Robin Miller's Book Signing Party!

This past Saturday, I had the honor of attending our beloved ACFW Prez, Robin Miller's (Carroll) booksigning here in my home city in Louisiana!

First stop was the book signing at Barnes & Noble. Robin had her entire family with her, a fun bunch of supportive, grinning, happy people in matching T-Shirts. Mr. Miller's shirt read: "My wife wrote" and had a pic of the book cover. The kids' shirts read: "My mommy wrote" etc. TOO cute!!

I toted my mother and grandmother along with me - there we were, three generations of excited readers (me in red, Mom in pink, Grandma in cute jacket) and dear ACFW member Cheryl Wyatt! (pink pants)

Here's a shot of the yummy, fun Cajun basket you can win on Robin's blog!!

After the book signing, I went solo to Robin's book launch party at a nearby library. Her family went all out with a themed stage-setting and delicious food.

(Yes, Robin, I remember - 5 brownies. lol) We had a blast, eating, talking...and bonus - several other ACFWr's showed up for the fun! Cheryl Wyatt, Ronie Kendig, and Dineen Miller. Let the inside jokes, Diet Coke and laughter flow! =)

Robin stole -- I mean borrowed -- Ronie's pen at the launch party. It glowed when you clicked it on to write... Ronie never got it back. =)

Me, trying not to crush sweet Cheryl! lol

What a FUN day!!! Robin rocks =)
(and so does her book, Bayou Justice!!!)
(PS - we're grinng so big here because right behind the person taking the picture, Ronie decided to do a flying ballet leap off to one side. Hey, it made for authentic smiles!)

Robin sold a bunch of books - check out the update on her blog here!

Oh what a blast that was! I'm finally home and trying to catch up. Haven't even had a chance to post about it, let alone visit the Apple store. (wink-wink)
