Scotia Sinker's Official Launch – or should I say plunge?

A wonderful group of book enthusiasts helped me officially launch Scotia Sinker at the beautiful Maritime Museum of the Atlantic this past Saturday, May 9, 2015.

Fans from age four to 88 (my dad; still a kid at heart) gathered in the Days of Sail room where illustrator Joel Duggan and I greeted them and signed books on request. Snacks include thematic gummy fish and sharks.

Inside the auditorium I read from the book, doing my not to stumble over the words. I *think* it went okay—or at least the crowd was kind enough to applaud at the end. A few even went home with door prizes that included adventurer basics like binoculars and water bottles. One lucky winner got her own Lydia-the-great-white-shark hat.

Thanks again to everyone who turned out and made it a rewarding event. I'm a lucky person to have such unwavering support. Publishing this book was a leap of faith but with friends, family and fans who encourage and support me, I'm glad I took the "plunge."
