I had a ball at my first book signing on Saturday. I admit the whole thing felt surreal, as though I was sitting in someone else’s chair, filling in, until they got back from the bathroom. I am telling you this published author gig just didn’t feel real.
And then it did.
I felt like Clark Kent who went into the phone booth and came out Superman, because the longer I was there, the more I felt at home with that other side of me. The one who can be outgoing, and even bold in a group.
I loved meeting/visiting with new people and answering their questions. It was fun to talk about Crux (a favorite subject of mine) and I met several teens who shared their dreams of being published themselves. I tried to encourage everyone to follow their dreams and not give up, and I did it with a stupid, sappy grin on my face because I’m so happy a dream of mine came true July 9th with the release of my book.
Below are a few shots taken at the signing. I’m giving a big shout out and thank you to Books for Less for being an amazing host and featuring my book on their shelves. Ya’ll rock!
I got to talk with the coolest people today!
A few fans who dropped by around 11:00 🙂
I’ve never been so excited to write my own name!
Isn’t it pretty?
More signing and talking, very cool.
There must be sugar!
My awesome cover, I just love it!
Isn’t she cute? Gorgeous hair like a cover model. 🙂
I was there from eleven to three, sold a lot of books and talked shop with people who share my love of reading and writing. It was a blast, and I’m grateful to everyone who came by! 🙂 Let’s do it again!!!
