Christina Dodd’s Anniversary Cake

Sometimes in an author’s career there comes a moment that resonates with emotion. I had one of those times on Saturday February 8 when, at The Poisoned Pen Bookstore, those wonderful booksellers presented me with a cake and balloons to celebrate my 30th publishing anniversary. I was reminded of my first autographing at the bookstore where I was a bookseller (Carol’s Book Corner in Houston) when a customer presented me with a cake she’d had decorated with the cover of my first book, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW.

Yep, I shed a few tears.
Then I ate cake.

Both cakes were yummy. I wish I could share them with you all, dear friends. Thank you for a wonderful 30 years!

As an author and reader, during these tough times I’m concerned about the fate of great independent bookstores like The Poisoned Pen. If you feel the same way, give your independent bookstore a visit or if that’s not possible, call and have them ship you a book or five. Want an autographed Christina Dodd book? The
