Amanda in Alberta Book Launch

Posted on: July 27, 2014

Today was a fabulous sunny day and a perfect day to launch Amanda in Alberta – The Writing on the Stone. This is the fourth book in the Amanda travel adventure series. (Can it be possible that I have had 4 books published?) The event was held at Albany Books, a wonderful local book store. I was delighted to see so many of my friends and supporters stop in. I am blessed with the most amazing fans of my work. Those that couldn’t make it were there in spirit.


Faithful followers of Amanda came from near and far.

I dedicated this book to my dear cowboy dad. The bolo tie I am wearing was his and the horseshoe on the table came from his ranch. I think he would have liked that. It was indeed a perfect day for a book launch!

Now THAT is how you set up a book signing. The table looked great.

Thank you Steve! I have fun finding suitable props for my table.

I am so proud of your accomplishments and the support you have from friends and family in this venture. Like you, I have a loyal, helpful husband, my scanner, artist, editor and more!

Awe, thank so much Marion. We are lucky to have devoted hubbies who give us the support we need.

Looks like the perfect day for the launch!!! Congrats!!

Thanks Beth Ann. I couldn’t have asked for a better day.

It looked perfect in every way and you looked oh so very happy. 🙂

You wear a lot of different hats (hehehe), Darlene – literally and figuratively! Nice buffalo and congrats.

Thanks Jan. I love the buffalo too. Found him in New Mexico.

What a great event. It looks like you (and your fans!) had a blast, and congrats on your FOURTH book. 🙂

Thanks Libby. It was a blast for all of us. It makes all the hard work worth it.

Woo Hoo. Congratulations, Darlene. Number four! Here’s to many more. You look wonderful. ❤ 🙂

Thank you so much. I felt wonderful too. I guess I better get going on the next one!

Congratulations, Darlene! Great pictures! What a wonderful accomplishment!

Thanks Christa. It feels good to say I have completed and published 4 books. The photographer did do a great job!

Congratulations! I know what I’ll be reading this week. And I agree with the earlier comments that I love how you set up the table and your hat!


Thanks Nancy. I hope you enjoy Amanda’s adventures in Alberta. There is a bit more on “me” in this book. Glad you liked the hat. It was a last minute decision.

Congratulations Darlene, it certainly looked like a lot of fun, and that bookstore is amazing.

Thanks Barbara. It was a lot of fun with so many friends and fans around. I love that book store and have had all my launches there so far.

Book 4!! Congratulations.

Who would have thought! Thanks for all of your assistance and encouragement. You introduced me to the Bar U Ranch!

YAYYYYYY!!! I can’t wait to read it! 😀

Hope you like this one.

Congratulations, Darlene. All the hard work is paying off. All the blessings in the world to your success – now and in the future.

Love your photos … the hat too.

Thanks Maxi. Your support and encouragement means a lot. Glad you liked the hat.

Congratulations on your launch and the publication of your fourth book. An accomplishment to be very proud of.

Thanks so much for your kind words and for stopping in Sue.

I missed the bolo tie, but I love your hat!

Glad you liked the hat. Picked it up at the Calgary airport as I was passing through. Thought it would do the trick. We each got one of Dad’s bolo ties when he passed away 7 tears ago. The one i got has a stone on it (agate) so it tied in well with the book.
