Debut Novel Success

Kicking back today with a leisurely kayak outing, but not before I say, THANK YOU.

My novel launch was a huge success. The paperback copy started the day ranked #435,371 on and by 10:00 p.m., A Stop in the Park, found its way to #357 out of six million books. I have my wonderful family, friends, colleagues at the City School District of Albany and my online community of friends/followers to thank for that wonderful moment.

On top of that, I clicked onto my hometown's newspaper, The Saratogian, today and saw this article about my journey with A Stop in the Park

It's been an amazing, but exhausting few days, so I'll leave you with good wishes for a great week. I'll be on the lookout for those kick back moments that make us stop, let go, and focus on the wonder that surrounds us everyday.


  1. WOOHOO! What great news and richly deserved! I left a comment on The Saratogian's website, but it isn't showing up. If it doesn't appear soon, I'll try again.

  2. Congratulations, Peggy! I loved the write up in the paper and I can't wait to read my copy. Best of luck with everything. I am so happy for you! Ramona
