The Booksigning

WAS AMAZING!

We got to the store half an hour ahead of time, found Ellen Wulf, the CSM, who was wonderfully supportive. We got set up, then wandered around for about 15 minutes, then at like 5 minutes after 7.....wow.

Five teachers walked in - Cindi and Lucinda, Cindi's good friend Corrinna, my cooperating teacher Mrs. Tidwell and another teacher from my first school, Mrs. Gerarde, who used to do duty with me and listen to all the story ideas I had.

Then Martha Hix walked in, Martha Hix who is multipublished, who heard about my booksigning and HAD to come. Martha Hix who was in SARA when I started, who is just terrific and giving and awesome. She had Evelyn Rogers on the phone, and she apologized for not coming, but she thought it was Friday.

THEN the PHARMACIST I used to work with at Eckerds over TWENTY years ago came.

Then it was just a blur, JoAnn came and Joni and Patricia from SARA, Merrily who'd been SARA prez years back, Michele came and Linda, my cp, and Elise, who helped me brainstorm this book, and Kammy. I sold one book to someone I didn't know, but everyone else was a friend.

Here are pictures - share the excitement!

It was such a blast. My face HURT this morning from all the grinning. I was SO HAPPY to see Michele and JoAnn there, to celebrate with me. They've been with me all along this long road and that meant so much.

I was so wound I couldn't go to sleep till about 2!

It was great fun to have the joint signing since we've had a very similar path to publication. Can't wait to do it again!

Mary, I am so glad the book signing went well!!! I don't have my copy yet, but I will be picking one up.

MaryF said...

Trish will tell you how nervous I was, but imagine if we HADN'T signed together! I would have been a wreck.

Toni, thanks! I hope you enjoy it!
