Peggy Barnetts book Bitter Fruit is finally available in bookstores and on Amazon!

The book launch party will be on July 23 at BookTree Bookstore in Kirkland. It starts at 4 PM.

Peggy says: “I can’t believe how much work there is to selling the book. Readings, building a website, social media—it’s hard to get to it all. And being self-published faces a lot of prejudice in the industry. But so what, I’ve got a book that I love in my hands!”

She hopes to see you all at the party.
