Pictures from B&N Book Signing
The book signing went so well today! I had serious anxiety in the car on the way there. It was such a good idea all the way up until I'm driving to B&N, then, it wasn't such a good idea any more. Good idea, good idea, good idea....bad idea...
Now, I realize it was a great idea, and I had nothing to worry about. (I'm such a worry wart.) I didn't even have to read my book out loud. The manager said we'd sell more if we stood out front and talked about our books instead. And we did. I watched the stack of books go down slowly.
Total strangers came by to ask us questions about our books, and they bought them! Of course, my entire family showed up, and that helped to create more buzz. I need to thank my parents, Brianne, James, Evan, Austin, Danielle, and of course Chris for being there for me today.
Sarah Gilman is so much fun to be with. We had a blast talking about flute (Get two flutists together and there's always conversation), writing, family, all sorts of topics. We even had another local author invite us to another book signing event at a local winery. How cool is that?
At the end of the day, I'm glad I did it. Thank you, Barnes and Noble Manchester for making my dream come true!
