My friends at the Rockport Public Library hosted me for a reception, reading, and book signing this afternoon. It's was a low-key affair. Just a small group of local book lovers who wanted to celebrate the publication of my first novel with me. I suppose I could have hoped for a bigger crowd or more book sales, but I felt nothing but gratitude for the experience of sharing The Poacher's Son with such an interested audience in such a warm and familiar setting. I'm not one for quoting proverbs, but it really is better to want what you have than to have what you want.
