Valor Makes World of Difference at Barnes and Noble

Our March 16th launch party was a huge success! We had a steady stream of people, the entertainment was top notch, and the authors were thrilled to hold their books in their hands and show them off a bit, too.

Here are some of the highlights of the evening:
Musician Shaun Barrowes performed for half an hour, bringing his bluesy sound to Barnes and Noble.

Karen E. Hoover, author of The Sapphire Flute, brought her own sapphire flute and performed a duet, with Paulette Inman at the harp.

We were blessed with the support of good friends all evening long. L-R: Melanie Adams, Karen E. Hoover, Michele Ashman Bell, and Heather Justesen.

New Valor author Andrea Pearson came to cheer us on.

Daron D. Fraley, author of The Thorn, was on hand to sign copies with his cool fountain pen.

Michele Ashman Bell with her newest release, Summer in Paris.

Kimberly Job and Tristi Pinkston's table displays and stand-up posters.

Kimberly Job, author of I'll Know You by Heart.

Tristi Pinkston, author of Secret Sisters.

We're so proud of our authors, and we appreciate the support of friends, family, and the public in making our book launch such a success!

Your sapphire flute is beautiful! I was so disappointed to miss this, but I rolled my ankle the Saturday before so I couldn't go.
