Book signing funnies...


Currently: Thankful the small ones are napping and the big one is at chess club...

Mood: Torn...do I dare start something new or wait for the editor to give me feedback on that lawyers book I've been yapping about for months...

I wish I'd done enough book signings to have a funny story. I feel like I'm sleeping at the wheel here...
I had a great time at the Lincoln City Book Fair with Terri Reed (who's kids were bored), Megan Clark (who brings great props), and Minnette Meador (who's chocolates melted)...but nothing was really comic...unless you count my book sales.

It was a gorgeous day on the coast, one of the few warm ones of the summer. My baby was wee small, so I trekked the whole family there and she got to see the ocean for the first time. My boys played in the surf, my skin picked up the kiss of summer, and the baby slept through most of the event.

Romance Author's Night at Powell's was fun too. Authors came down from Seattle, so I was able to catch up with them and show off the baby (again in tow)...Megan brought fun props again, Minnette's chocolate stayed solid, Delilah Marvelle signed her debut...I talked knit baby hats with Elizabeth Boyle, but didn't sell many books...
Next time I'll do something outrageous so I'll have a better story...and maybe even sell a few copies!

The chocolates will not be traveling with me to any more outdoor events...I'll bring hard candy next time. It is always great fun to do a signing with you. :)

M&Ms. Melt in your mouth, not in your hands. Unless you hang on to them too long...

What kind of props does Megan bring?

mmmm...m&m's...good tip!

Megan brings these table top corset stands with boas and beads and a fantastically fun attitude. I reccomend anyone try and sit next to her.

Megan is a BLAST. But then again, so are you!!! It's too funny to see pictures of myself signing...
