The debut of the book at Pages Bookstore in Manhattan beach went very well - articles were printed in the Easy Reader and Beach Reporter, the two local weekly papers. Here is a LINK to the one fom the Beach Reporter, HERE is the Easy Reader. The bookstore created a wonderful window display - on the left I am in front of it.
To celebrate the release, I made a batch of rum punch from Charles Dickens' recipe, which was decanted from a stoneware jug that dates from the 1880's. I also served a rum cake made from the recipe in the book - it was a grand time. Thank you to all who showed up!
