Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations Launch Party Hosted by Imogene + Willie

Imogene + Willie, thank you for hosting the best night of my life. To those who came, I am forever grateful. For those who missed out, hopefully these images by Red Hare Design will make you feel as though you were there. Thank you to everyone who embraced this labor of love. I’m pretty sure we blew the roof off your typical book release!

Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations subject Stephanie Pruitt facilitated the Q&A. Her grace, intelligence and strength kept me sane throughout the writing process of my book.
