Post launch thoughts and thanks

It's been a over a week since the launch of Watching July and the good wishes are still pouring in. Thank you to everyone for all your support and encouragement.

A big huge thank you to everyone at Sumach Press for all their work in helping to bring July into the world. Thanks to my editor Jennifer, publisher Lois and publicist Dayle.

Thanks also to everyone who came out to the launch. Although I'd planned to share the live reading here (which Jeff was kind enough to record with his mp3 player) the sound quality just wasn't post-worthy.

So although it's not live, here is the first chapter:

The first review is in too - excerpt and link below.
    "...the descriptive flowing style of the work invites the reader right into the life of July MacKenzie to the extent that it feels as if she is a friend.

    ...a cunningly written book, with strong and vivid characters, plot twists and turns."
