Oasis in Emmitsburg

What a lovely "Meet the Author" event -- over two days, Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26 -- at the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

Truth be told, more copies of Oasis sold earlier in the week without the Author. But, I enjoyed so much being on hand to sign copies of my book for Rita; Fr. Collin Poston, Pastor of St. Anthony's, a stone's throw away, joined by his dog Otto -- the star of Otto Grotto Walks!; DeWayne from Nigeria; Christine; Debby; Elvia and Tom Becker of Iowa who gave me a big thumbs up (along with Fr. Poston -- and Otto, I'm surmising :-))

All told, 17 copies of Oasis: Conversion Stories of Hollywood Legends were sold at the National Shrine Grotto bookstore, St. Bernadette's Shoppe, August 19-26... No doubt, they kept selling at a steady clip the following week... for each book sold, the Grotto receives $11... so for those who support the Grotto, buy up a copy of Oasis... it's for a great cause!

For my efforts, the Grotto staff gave me a big box of peaches from Baugher's with a pretty lavender bow and a lovely book, The Story of Our Lady's Grotto, about how the Grotto came into being...

All in all, a wonderful occasion... very relaxing... and rejuvenating...
