Photos from the book launch

This entry is part 14 of the series Story Behind the Book

The night of the big launch!

The night before and the morning of the big launch, the family joined together in a first-time-ever work-party. There was much fun, laughter, clowning, and even some hard work.

For me this was one of the highlights of the evening: having almost my entire family around, working together. I missed my daughter and family far away in freezing Kazakhstan but everyone else was there – even the dog!
