WOW! That sums up my signing. Thirty-three people showed up! Thank you so much to everyone who was there. I can’t express how much your support means to me. We packed Subterranean Books! Tori, the wonderful girl working, told me this was the largest turnout they’ve had for a signing, so again, WOW!
I was a bit nervous about reading my work to people…especially people I know. I wasn’t worried about the intro or Q&A, but reading my own stuff…that’s nerve wracking. It went well though. Tori introduced me, then I talked for a few minutes about myself and my writing, then read the first two chapters of Divided. After that was a Q&A and there were some really wonderful questions, some that gave me ideas for some possible bonuses to post here on my blog. I’ll have to see what I can come up with.
After the signing about half of us went to Blueberry Hill for appetizers and drinks. I have the best parents in the world, as that was their idea and they paid for it. Thanks so much Mom and Dad. It made the night even better, and it was so fun to hang out with people afterwards.
John recorded the whole thing, and it turned out pretty well, especially considering I’d just bought the camcorder that day and we’d never used it before other than a few minutes messing around to figure out the controls. So here it is. Something happened in the middle of the Q&A and the recording stopped, then starts up again a few second later in the second file. So watch the longer one first.
I really enjoyed myself and can’t wait for my next signing. I hope Subterranean Books will have me back for it…though if too many more people show up I’m not sure where they’d all go! What a great problem to have!
The videos were too big to upload here, so here are the links to the videos on YouTube. Enjoy!
