The Book Signing


Last Saturday, I had my first book signing.  Village Books in Columbia, MO was nice enough to host me.  I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Would anyone show up?  Would I sit for 2 hours with nothing to do?  Would I be more of a hindrance – in the way of real customers?

Thankfully, that wasn’t the case.  I had a steady stream of book lovers come in to purchase my novels and hang out to chat for a few minutes.  “Real customers” stopped to ask about my books and a few were talked into giving them a try.  And those in attendance got a taste of Butchered Dreams, before it was released, because I did do a short reading from the novel.

Becky and Doug did a great job of making me feel welcome and wanted.  I couldn’t have asked for a better bookstore to do my first signing.  Pictures were taken and in the few moments of down time, they helped me stay focused, calm, and entertained.  They deserve a huge pat on the back for their efforts and attention.

Also, I want to thank everyone that came out.  And not just because they bought books, they chatted, listened to my horrid reading aloud, and lended their support.  I had readers from as far away as Springfield, Missouri and Topeka, Kansas show up.  I may write for myself, but I publish only because people keep reading my books.

Sorry this post came late.
