It’s here! My first book is now available on Amazon and in Nightbird Books. Woo-hoooo!

You can order a copy by clicking HERE.

Reporting Live from the Laundry Pile: The Rockwood Files Collection is a compilation of my best newspaper columns over the past 17 years. In it you’ll find chapters titled “The Marriage Files,” “The Firstborn Files,” “The Middle Child Files,” “The Girl Child Files,” “The Soapbox Files,” “The Pets & Pests Files,” “The Holiday Files,” and the “Just-for-Fun Files.”

This book has been a long time in the making, but I’m thrilled with the finished product. I hope you will be, too. The amazing Lisa McSpadden of Lisa Mac Photography did the photos for this book, and Greg Moody of Moody Image did the incredible design work. I’m indebted to both of them for making the collection look so good.

Now, this next part is really important: We’re having a book launch party! And it won’t be a very good party if you don’t come.

So please come by the book launch event on November 2, 2012 at Nightbird Books in Fayetteville, Ark. This is a drop-in event between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. I’ll read a selection from the book around 7 p.m., and I’ll be signing books as well.

If you’d like to buy a book as a gift, the bookstore offers free gift wrapping.

There’ll be lots of books, snacks and tasty beverages, so I hope you can make it. I’d love to see you there. Nightbird Books is at 205 W. Dickson Street in Fayetteville. Park in the front or back parking lots. If you can make it to the book bash, let us know by posting a comment here or by sending a quick email by clicking HERE.

Here’s a one-minute video preview of the new book. Click the play arrow below to check it out.

  1. Gwen: How very nice to be invited to this book launching event. Sorry to say, I will not be able to attend but believe me, I have followed the Rockwell files for a long time and feel as though I know all the family of the ‘laundry-overload’ abode. Ha! Earless Joe is my favorite of stories because of my deep convictions of hoping and praying for help to stop animal abuse. Thanks for the invitation, I will be there in spirit and will be sure to have the book by postal delivery. May you sell an ‘overload’ of the new release. Sincerely Patricia

      Sorry you can’t be there, Patricia, but thank you for the kind note. I sincerely appreciate you for reading me for all these years. Stay in touch. 🙂

    Dear Gwen,
    Thanks so much for contacting me about this tremendous milestone in your already tremendous writing career. I appreciate the invitation to your Book Launch Party. While in the midst of composing a note to say I could not attend, my daughter, Sherry, began to insist that I COULD attend because she would drive me to Fayetteville. (She’s like that!) So it looks like I will be there, Lord willing. I’m so proud of you and your accomplishments. Your success as a writer is a great reward, but you aren’t the only one to benefit. You have reached out to us, your readers, and provided us with good humor, helpful tips on life, and some spiritual input along the way. So after knowing you for a long time through your newspaper columns, I look forward to meeting you in person. Congratulations and best wishes. Joyce Wright

      Joyce, I am SO thrilled to know that you’re coming to the party! Please tell Sherry how much I appreciate her for making this drive. I’m looking forward to meeting the two of you and having a little time to talk. What a blessing. Thank you!

    Thanks Gwen for this invite. Sorry but other commitments are hindering my being at this great event. May you have many others, as me that enjoy all your notes and memos and stories and your book is a great success!
