Greetings, readers. Last Friday evening I had my very first ever official book signing. Elaine Meder-Wilgus of Webster’s Bookstore and Café, helped set it up along with her crew and the display looked marvelous. The event was on her website for at least a couple of weeks, if not three, and I was expecting a modest turn-out. Well, we had a few internet-ers, a couple of people I invited, the staff, and a whole lot of crickets. Rebecca and I, along with her husband, sat there sipping our refreshments for ninety minutes. I did have a couple of sales and some sporadic mingling went on. Over all, I consider the event successful. It was a good learning experience.
We read from the books, Rebecca and I, and I’m not so sure that was a good thing. That is what is generally known as standard procedure at Websters for a book signing. To me, it gave people the opportunity to pack up and leave. But I seriously doubt that the college kids that were studying there were there because of my book signing.
Pictures from this event are in my gallery section. Here is one of them. Checking our media section, we only have two uploaded from one of our phones. If and when more pictures are loaded, we will add them to the gallery.
To close, since I see we are running out of time today, I’m going to ask Rebecca to do Wednesday’s blog post for us and I am certain she will have a good topic in mind. Until then, have a good weekend, take care, and happy reading.
