Today was my very first book signing. It went well. I was promoting my newest book Witch Book at the Toadstool Bookshop in Peterborough, NH.
I wasn’t sure how this was going to go. It was my very first time speaking in public. I was told that I did better than I thought I was going to do. But I did have help.
My good friend, Linda Kepner was there with me. She was promoting her newest release Second Chance. We were Linda’s in stereo.
Linda prompted me along, teaching me to walk the walk and talk the talk. She is so good at this book signing thing, she doesn’t even need notes to look at anymore.
Now we are trying to plan our next event.
I guess LK and her husband Terry are looking at setting us up for an event at BooksaMillion in Concord, NH. I’m not sure how long this will take. Terry says that there is a lot of red tape to go through, but I guess he is working on it.
We had a pretty good turnout considering there were a lot of different events going on in the area.
There was a quilt show in Peterborough, a Scarecrow festival in Jaffrey, and an Art Tour in the Monadnock region. Oh and there was a pumpkin festival happening in Milford as well.
I had a wonderful surprise too. Two of my former high school classmates made the trip to Peterborough to hear me speak and each walked away with a signed book. Then there was a co-worker of mine, she too show up to give me support.
My son was there as well. He had brought an old friend with him, one who had gotten into some mishap with him when his life was taking its down turn. It was neat to see how he loved seeing the dedication in my first book Friends of Choice was said to be to him and his sister. He made a point to point this out to his friend and the Acknowledgement part about the Phoenix House Rehab.
This goes to show how much his life has change in the past couple of years.
I found some more inspiration to get Road Salt done today. Several people in our audience mentioned how they will be looking forward to reading Road Salt when it comes out and voice how they liked the topic of Bath Salts. So I had better get that butt in the chair and get writing again. – It’s 30% done at this time.
