Last night, I had my first bookstore signing event at the Reston (VA) Barnes & Noble.
I’ve been patronizing this store for many years, and it was such a thrill to be speaking at it. As a published author. With my books on the shelf! In a word: AWESOME!
We had a nice turnout—most of the seats were taken—and we sold some books. Also nice. But it was even nicer meeting such wonderful readers and talented local writers (and a few folks just there for the cake—I don’t blame them a bit!).
I had a blast!
I’d like to thank my two hosts for the event, Ginna and Martina. Two nicer and more supportive ladies you will never meet. And so knowledgeable, too. If you ever have any book questions, you now know where to go. Tell them Alan sent you. (While you’re there, you could always pick up a signed copy of DIAMONDS FOR THE DEAD. Just sayin’)
THANKS SO MUCH, LADIES!
(At my talk, every time I looked up, I saw THE TAVERNIER STONES out of the corner of my eye, on a nearby end display. Which is a good omen, I think, because next Monday’s blog post will focus on that newly-released book!)
