I don’t think I shared this yet, but this was one of the coolest gifts I got at Christmastime — my brother’s wife gave me this beautiful silver paperweight (it’s about the size of a deck of cards), engraved with my first book title.
I opened it, took one look at my pen name, my book name, then burst into tears!
I think it just struck me as so “real” all of a sudden.
This was a very, very special gift! Thanks to my SIL Barbara!
