Books and Brownies

Book Cartons

Books in carton

They arrived!  Cartons of beautiful books – my book! Fresh from the printer, everything I hoped for and more. Can't help it – I'm very proud of the end result of all those months of planning and writing and revising.

Of course, we had to celebrate with a signing/packing/shipping session. And what's a celebration without chocolate? I was prepared with Baltimore's famous Berger cookies, but my publisher, Peg Silloway, did that one better with homemade fudgey brownies. Yum!

Books and brownies – there's no better way to celebrate.

B&B. And I'm with you. B&B does not stand for Bed & Breakfast. Books and brownies is much better.

I just finished reading your book this evening.  You hit it out of the park.  What a great book.  I may be partial because much of what you discuss are the very same things I tell new and struggling agents.  You also gave me some new ideas for improving my business.

Congratulations and such a wonderful book!

Pat Kennedy featured your book in a recent blog. She says it is a great book and recommends it to anyone in sales (not just real estate.) I'll have to get a copy. Congratulations on your book and the sterling reputation you have in the real estate community.
