A Gift

Authors have a few advantages. We always have a gift on hand. Last night I went to a farewell party for a local couple. I don't know them well and wasn't sure it was appropriate to buy them something. So I inscribed and wrapped up a copy of Men of Paradise.

Turns out it wasn't a gift-giving occasion but I slipped her the book anyway. I have found that when you are giving away your art it's never too much or not enough. No, it's always just right.

A lovely thought and I am sure much appreciated.

You know, when we give away our art we're giving away part of ourselves. I think most people realize that and appreciate it all the more.

Thanks, ladies. I did seem to be having some formatting problems with this post.

What a thoughtful gift! Anyone would appreciate getting one of your signed stories, Kathy. They're all so entertaining!

Hope you enjoyed the party. :)
