As for me IN the book signing event… Well, I sat between Hildie McQueen and Crista McHugh, who each had pile of books next to my piddly little two piles. I didn’t sell any of the anthologies (not that I thought I would, thus the piddly size), but I did hand out lots of post cards and informed everyone who took a card that my book was available as an e-book on B&N and Amazon. By the time the book signing event came along, most people didn’t want to buy ANY books. They were already pretty much filled up with freebies they had to lug home! I remember that feeling, too!
The last event I attended on Sunday was the Military Mixer. The surprise was being asked to go up front and join the other RomVets (it’s a group I belong with—veterans who write romance—www.romvets.com) in attendance. There were seven of us there and we were told to tell a little about ourselves. What???? Yeah, I about died. Especially since I followed Lindsay McKenna, who told a heart wrenching story. You try following that (but hey, she hugged me, so all's good). Later, our group picture was taken, which MIGHT end up in a future issue of RT magazine, or maybe just their blog/website/Facebook page. I was asked for my name and publisher (by Kathryn Falk, no less!!), so there’s hope I’ll show up somewhere. Now THAT would be cool.
As my title explains, I’m still traveling (left NOLA at noon yesterday and stopped in
for the evening). I expect to be home sometime this afternoon. Looking forward
to sleeping in my own bed tonight! And then back to writing tomorrow. Whoo hoo!
