M.V. Freeman's Incandescent Launch Party & Debut Book Winner

M.V. Freeman & I celebrating a huge milestone!!
This has been an exciting week for my dear writing friend M.V. Freeman. She launched her debut book INCANDESCENT on Monday. Already the rankings are going up and up and up!! Way to go M.V.!! We celebrated her writing journey on the Veranda on Tuesday. You can read about her journey here. One lucky commentator won the debut book.

Drum roll please!!!!!

Congratulations to Heather Leonard. 

M.V. and Angela Blount man the command booth.

Kellie M. gets the party started!
Cathy S. & Dani W. join the festivities.
Monday night the Physicist and I went to M.V.'s book launch party. Many of my Heart of Dixie writing sisters were there along with several of M.V.'s friends. We had a great time celebrating the book's release, conversing with friends, laughing and celebrating the sweet taste of publication.

M.V. Freeman and friends.

Here's what it looks like to finally release a debut novel!! As you can see, we had quite a wonderful time. Much happiness and positivity surrounded us. We were all happy for M.V. because she's worked so hard to make her dream become a reality. 

And because when one of us succeeds, we all believe we can attain the dream as well. 
The Physicist and M.V.'s hero. 

I was thrilled to be a part of the celebration. In a few short months, we'll be celebrating more releases. Next up is Katherine Bone with her Pirate romance. And I can't wait to share her writing journey with all my readers.

Now that I've had all this fun celebrating my friend's book release, I must get back to my own writing. After all, I need another reason to bring my friends and family together!! And celebrating my own debut release in the future--when that call finally happens--will be sweet!
