My First Book Signing

Hello Nerds!

One day that title will mean something totally different! But for today, it just means I went to my first book singing event, of another author. Robert Beatty just released a novel called Serafina and the Black Cloak.

It was really fun. I got to talk to the author a little and who doesn’t love a signed copy of any book?

The event was held at my local Barnes and Noble book store, so of course I didn’t just get a signed book.

The event itself was pretty short. It only lasted about an hour. I stood in line for maybe 10 minutes to get my book signed because I got there early. Then there was a quick Q&A. I even got to ask my own question. There were not a lot of people there.  After the author went back to signing books and I found new friends.

I ended up talking to a few other ladies for about an hour about books, reading, movies, and writing. It was seriously the first time I have had an instant connection with people since high school. It was a blast.

Also, this is probably the first author I have personally met…ever. lol

And you should see the book behind the dust jacket!

Anyways, want to see what else I got??

The writing prompts are cute and it just seemed fun. I may share a few. And you can never have too many notebooks. I am going to decorate this one and sort of personalize it.

I can’t wait to go to another book signing and make more friends!

    Nice haul! Book signings are so much fun. I love being able to meet the mind behind the book. And that looks like a fun book–I’ll have to check it out!

      I will be going to more. My only problem is that no one really comes to SC or near where I live in SC. The only reason this guy made it to my neck of the woods is because he is from NC and his novel involves the Biltmore House in NC. It’s a popular vacation spot around here.
