Wednesday night was launch party night at the wonderful Providence Wine Bar. There was wine, cake, raffle baskets, and of course lots and lots of books!


Our amazing host Ben let us enjoy the ambience and fantastic food and wine of the PWB, and I’d like to extend my thanks to him and his incredible staff. Here he is posing with the cake!

So many friends and family came to the event, and it was truly a special evening. It flew by so fast, I missed many photo opportunities, but here I am with my wonderful mom, Peggy:

Summoned is dedicated to my two daughters, Chiara and Sabrina. Here I am posing with Sabrina while her older sister was busy selling books:

Several friends from work and neighbors stopped by. Here is a nice photo of me with my hardworking colleague Toki Oyelese:

And here’s another with Derryl, an author himself and one of my Pokemon Go buddies!

At the end of the night, the two Moroccan-themed baskets were raffled off, and the winner of the Kindle Fire announced.

It was a dream come true, and thanks to everyone who helped me celebrate the debut of Summoned!
