Last night marked my first official book signing event. First of all, thank you to Thomas and Kyle of the Battery Park Book Exchange in Asheville for allowing me the pleasure of borrowing thier establishment for a couple hours. I really enjoyed the informal setting where people stopped by and were invited to stay and visit for a short while. I enjoyed talking to them all. I can already see I will enjoy these type of personal signing events.
I am still mulling over the night, trying to take bits away as learning material but I had a wonderful night and I hope everyone who called by did as well. Below is a breif except from my journal entry , which I confess I scribbled on in between visitors to my table:
“Now I sit here, in this lovely space, surrounded by books and people who appreciate books, dogs and wine. Mingled conversations abound, from hushed whispers to merry laughter. So–my first book signing event, offering “Whispers” to the public. And open book–no pun intended–ti see how it will go. learning experience regardless of the result tonight. I am set up. Not nervous, just ready. Embracing. Eager. I am ready for anything or nothing or whatever falls between.”
