It started at 7 this morning. After getting the books done and restocking, and maybe doing a few signs (National Book Awards kids table, for example), we got our books ready for the first author meeting, a stock signing with Todd Ritter for his second novel, Bad Moon. Though none of us had read the book yet, our mystery specialist Anne was intrigued. I guess these stock signings do the job.
I drove off to the Elm Grove Woman's Club for our event with Jennifer Chiaverini, for the publication of the newly-released The Wedding Quilt. Patched Works had gone all out for the event, not only procuring a wedding cake as part of the refreshments, but also having a bride. In addition to hearing about the new novel, we got a peak at the next release, Sonoma Rose, which comes out in February.
Here's a quote from Arianna Huffington: "This moment in history demands that we stop waiting for others--especially others living in Washington, D.C.--to solve the problems and right the wrongs of our times. Now, more than ever, we must mine the most underutilized resource available to us: We the People. Everyone Leads shows us how."
I'm going to be blunt--this might have been too much to take on in one day. But everything is going pretty well. I've only been yelled at by one person, but that was interesting enough that I think it deserves its own post.
