I’d say I have pictures to share, but then I’d be lying. I took a couple of pictures, but they’re still on my phone and pretty lame, anyway. Nothing with ME in them. Sometimes I think I need an assistant just to take the pictures. Haha!
The Angels and Sirens book signing went better than I expected, but a lot different than I expected, too. Apparently I also had to pay extra for the dinner and mixer after (I thought it was part of the author price—it was not). Oh well, so I didn’t stay for those. But a lot of people did stop by my table during the signing (some even bought a book!). I had a giveaway basket I had hoped would generate more interest, but that didn’t work out like I thought. Live and learn. Live and learn.
My next reader convention is RT (Romantic Times Booklovers convention). That’s a massive event, but it’s fun, too. I’ll be part of Kensington’s party (they’re giving away copies of Ghostly Liaison for me to sign), which is a nice bonus for me. I’ll also be part of another party – Beach Blanket Bingo. I’ll be sharing my table with writer friend, TeriAnne Stanley. Should be lots of fun!
Anyway, back to my weekend.
I was so wiped out on Saturday (having gotten up at 4am and then driving 3 hours to
), I was asleep by 9:30pm. Of
course, I was the first to wake up in the morning! But we still took our time
getting up and ready. Didn’t have to be in Washington,
PA until 3:45 (when the charity bag
sale commenced—Daughter bought one), so we had lunch at a restaurant I had
never been to before. A place that’s pretty famous in Pittsburgh : Primanti Brothers. Pittsburgh
Now, I didn’t go and get the sandwich that has slaw and French fries in it (yep, IN it). I opted for the meatball sub. Man, was that sub AWESOME. So glad there’s a restaurant in
(about 10 miles away from me). I don’t have to wait so long to return, because,
yeah, I’ll go back for that sandwich!
After lunch, we drove into
and found a place to park.
Unfortunately, we left the car in auxiliary mode for a bit until we were ready
to leave for the stadium and drained my car battery (it is getting old—nearly 7
years). Ooops. We crossed our fingers that when we came back to the car after
the game, that there would be enough juice to start up. There wasn’t. Pittsburgh
Someone was still in the parking lot when we returned who had jumper cables and gave us a start. Man, were we lucky or what? Guess I’ll be buying a new battery this week. Probably today, if I ever get my butt out of the house!
The Penguins game was awesome, too! Of course, I wasn’t feeling so great after the first period, since we were losing 3-0. Coach actually replaced
(the starting goalie) with Fleury. Ah, the love for that man! We were all chanting
Fleury’s name during the game, especially after the awesome saves he made. Murray never scored
again and we ended up winning 4-3 (the last two goals coming within the last 3
minutes of the game!). So it was an exciting game and made the 3-1/2 hour drive
home so much more pleasant! Buffalo
Even though we had to eat in the car after—we were afraid to turn it off so soon after leaving!
It was a great weekend and one I won’t soon forget. Especially now that I know I need a new battery! Haha!
So… Think I was just lucky my 6-1/2 year-old battery started on a jump? This battery is the one that came with the car. I’ve always been impressed with Nissan batteries (my Altima battery lasted long, too). We’ll see if I get as much mileage with the replacement.
