What happens when you get three authors together at Lavender Moon Gallery in Kainaliu, Hawaii? Lots of excitement in the community, many guests coming in for the book signing, chatting with all three authors, asking lots and lots of questions, photo ops, and great food. The show couldn’t happen without pink elephant cookies, chocolate éclairs, and cheesecake.
Guests registered for special gifts donated by the authors. Here are a few samples from the show. ENJOY!
Here I am getting ready and putting the last finishing touches to the gallery author’s table.
