I went to a book signing this past weekend at a local Christian Book store. I took 2 of my closest friends along and we had a blast! I only sold one book, but enjoyed chatting with all the customers. I hate to break the news to any aspiring authors out there who envision crowds of people lined up to have you sign your book for them, it just doesn't happen that way. Well, not unless you're Steven King or Karen Kingsbury! Honestly, no one really knew who I was or what I was doing there, even though the event had been well advertised. I find these book signings to be a good lesson from God in humility. After I got asked where the bathroom was more than once, I decided I should at least learn it's location so I'd have something to chat about with the customers!
The table cloth you see was made for me by one of my dearest friends and my mentee, Debbie Lynne Costello. I wish you could see it more clearly for it has tall ships and swords on it and the names of my 3 pirate books.
Anyway, I have another book signing this Saturday, October 4th at Berean Bookstore , 3396 Tyler Street, Riverside, CA. For anyone in the neighborhood. And please don't ask me where the bathroom is!
Currently, I'm furiously working on book 2 in the Charles Towne Belles Series, The Blue Enchantress. I'm nearing the end of the story which is always my favorite part.
Also for anyone interested, I have posted most of the first chapter of The Red Siren on my website under New Releases. Check it out and see what you think.
