Recently I attended two book signings and, to be honest, I couldn’t wait to have one myself. Well, I got my wish on March 20.
Let me explain how it happened. The Monroe County Reporter had an article inviting all Monroe County authors to come to its first annual Author’s Night at the library. Authors were asked to bring their books, meet everyone, and sign and sell books.
I took a copy of Seasons and Seashells to the branch manager. We talked, and it was a done deal. I was on the list to appear. I know it was for a short story, but no one seemed to mind.
I had an absolute ball! I called my artist friend, and she said, “Stage the table.” I also tried on outfits for a week. It wasn’t for a New York Times best-seller, but it didn’t matter. I was hyped!
Eight authors showed up and a few people, mainly from the town of Forsyth. I was the only romance writer. I did sell three books to total strangers. I resisted the urge to reach across the table and hug them.
I am nearing my deadline of having some more books “out there,” and when I do, you can bet I will have another book signing!
