Book signing successful

Even though Judith proved shy (she decided lattes were not for her) and Marla attended instead, the books signing was successful. I had a great day and sold a fair amount of books. The best part of the sales were the ones to total strangers. I love my friends for buying, but when someone you have never met and have no contact with comes up to you and requests a certain book, you know that all those hours on Facebook and your writers' sites have meant something. Someone knows your books are out there, and knows your name.

What better perk could an independently published writer have on a chilly day in downtown Troy OH?

My group, Gallimaufry, is planning a Valentine's signing as well. I'll let everyone know about it here first.

Book Signing Saturday

Judith Kingsley, 18th century woman and fiance of William Foxwell of South Carolina, will be making an appearance at Around About Books this Saturday, November 29th, 2008. Though a bit confused by all of the horseless carriages and fireless torches, she intends to 'carry on' in the English tradition and speak to those in attendance regarding her fiance's daughter Miriam and her forbidden love, COPPERHEAD. Judith will most likely also be sipping lattes and handing out fliers advertising the event. Please come and join us if you are in the area.

PS I really just wanted to play around in the costume now that I have panniers to wear under it! As Miriam put it in COPPERHEAD, 'the wrath of God' should be called 'down upon the man who had decided that a ‘proper’ woman must wear soft leather shoes and skirts three feet wide.'

We're signing books! Come and join in.

The writers of Gallimaufry (including me) will be at Around About Books in Troy, Ohio on November 29th between 2:00 and 4:00. This is our first individual group book signing and we are excited.

Come visit historic downtown Troy and meet the writers including Beth Henderson, author of 25 titles with over 600,000 copies sold worldwide, Marla Fair, author of Goodnight Robinson and COPPERHEAD, Rebekah McCoy, author of Rockstar, and Nioma Stephan, author of Low Bridge. It's the busiest day of the Christmas shopping season, so come on out and join the madness! There will be books galore at great prices and, best of all, there's a coffee shop next door!

If you're curious, check out our sites and you'll see, the trip is worth it!

Mea culpa

I have been absent from my blog for weeks. As the title says 'mea culpa'. My mother has been ill and between that and work shutting down, I haven't had time to blog. (Though I probably needed to!) Anyhow, I will post soon.

And for your enjoyment -

Another of my young men. (No, I don't own the second guy. Don't I wish? LOL I was just amazed by the resemblance of the man in the ferrotype to Viggo Mortenson.)
