When the Red Gates Opened was published on September 22 and immediately became a #1 new release on Amazon in two categories.
During the week of publication, I celebrated with two fantastic events:
- fun launch event with dozens of friends and family sponsored by Brick & Mortar Books of Redmond, Washington, and
- a webinar presentation at the National Committee on US-China Relations, based in New York, which attracted more than 110 participants.
I was delighted and honored that so many warm-hearted people helped me celebrate.
If you missed these, don’t worry! Here are two more, this coming week:
Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 7 pm Pacific at Island Books, Mercer Island, WA. To join this virtual book launch event on click Zoom link here. For Zoom password, send me an email.
Thursday, Oct. 1 at 4 pm Pacific/ 7 pm Eastern, webinar hosted by the Washington State China Relations Council, Seattle. Interviewer: Leslie Helm. To register (free), click this link.
