A little late with this, but what else is new, right? :-) So my first book signing, which took place Friday night at the fabulous Barnes & Noble at Southpoint Mall in Durham, NC. was awesome. I can't tell you how nervous I was, just hoping some people would show and the store wouldn't be left with a gazillion unsold books.
My daughter and I drove to the store two hours early to met up with some friends. (And this was one time I wished I had a Blackberry or any phone that would've allowed me to get my email because my editor sent me something very special, and I was dying of curiosity!). We met our friends and ate dinner. Well, correction. They ate dinner. By the time we were seated, I only had enough time to order a sweet tea, and then it was off to the store where my critique partner and her hub were waiting for me.
The signing went extraordinarily well. We sold every book on the table and had to get a few more off the shelf. This is due to all the wonderful friends and readers who took time out of their Friday night to stop by. So THANK YOU to All. Unfortunately, we didn't get as many pictures as we would've liked, but here are two that turned out okay:
I had so much fun seeing my friends and family and meeting a few new folks. Cheri at the B&N was incredibly nice, and I'm looking forward to going back again sometime. And, when I got home, put on my jammies, and checked that email from my editor, I FREAKED out. Um, yeah. Saw my book 2 cover, and *sigh*. LOVE IT. Cannot wait to share it with you guys!
