So what do Robin Meade from HLN, a reformed gangster, Muhammad Ali and I all have in common?...we all have written books and we were all out last night in celebration of the Holidays.
Robin, Kevin Pappas - the reformed gangster, and I all participated in Atlanta Press Club's Annual Holiday Author's Party. A far cry from the UNICEF Snowflake Ball happening in Beverly Hills that Muhammad Ali attended and an event that I would love to attend. But for me, just one month into being a published author, I was so honored to be a part of Atlanta Press Club's event. Not surprisingly, Robin and Kevin brought a little more traffic to their signing tables.
Robin happened to be our honorary chair at our annual Cabaret gala in 2007, so it was great to see her again. Her book, Morning Sunshine!: How to Radiate Confidence and Feel It Too is a New York Times bestseller, and has been welcomed with much success by both critics and the public alike. If my book made any list, I'd be pumped.
I was certain to get some good chat time with Robin and (per her request) gave her an autographed copy of my book. I'm sure it's still stuffed in her briefcase, but you never know right?...Speaking of my book, have you checked it out yet?...click on the button to the right and get a copy. If not for yourself, it's a great gift to help someone else.
I don't have a picture yet of last night...but of course snapshots are already up of the UNICEF Snowflake Ball. And I found a priceless one with Muhammad Ali - whom I've actually met a couple of times, so in some way I was there too. I love the Holidays.
