Tonight’s the Night!

Hello Readers,

Tonight is my first author appearance at the local library’s book club. I’m a little nervous, excited, and hopeful. I’ve heard they laugh a lot.

A DIY Book Signing Part 1

2E7DE661A5

Now, I’m getting nervous.

I’m getting ready for my first book signing for Cookie Encounter. The flyers are printed, the prizes purchased, the table and table cloths chosen, the decorations bought. I have a great location, a bakery in a nearby town to hold the signing. I am also collecting baking ingredients for the food pantry.

I have sent press releases to two papers but haven’t heard anything yet. Maybe I won’t. That’s ok. I’m doing everything I know how to do and doing my best. Local libraries are informed that I have a book out and will leave flyers for patrons.

The date and time are set. My books are here and ready to go home with a new friend. A couple of reviews are in and they are positive and most welcome.

Eight days until the event. This is not an ordinary thing for me. But I will try to have fun and enjoy myself.

It’s time to let my baby fly.
