Signed, sealed, and delivered


The book signing went reasonably well. There were six authors, so by the time we got going, it was SRO—always nice to see! I’d hoped for more cross-pollenization of fans, but in the end I sold book only to people I knew—not that I’m complaining, mind you! I think I sold six or seven books total, and signed more for the store. The other authors were quite charming, too.

Afterwards, Morgana (aka my driver), Gillian, Donna (visiting from Baltimore), and I went to Applebee’s and ate and talked, which was lovely. Since it doesn’t look like I’ll be making it to Gillian’s party tomorrow, must less the RWA meeting, I’m especially glad I got the chance to hang out with them.

My ankle is better (less swollen, more range of movement), and I could probably drive with it, but I’m not sure I want to risk SoCal freeways—I can drive, yes, but the thought of having to slam on the brakes makes me wince. I couldn’t suss out rides, so I guess tomorrow will be a day of productivity…

At least, I hope so. I still have a headache, so I’m going to bed as soon as I post this, and hopefully a long night’s sleep will solve the problem…

(Ooh! Just saw an e-mail come in: Our assignment for the Denise Little workshop next month. Fun anthology topic! Guess I know what I’ll be working on tomorrow!)

Don't know if it's the joy of publishing/sales or what, but you look fabulous!

Thanks to both of you! I'm not thrilled with how I look, but hey, I've looked worse! (It's just that I've looked better...!) ;-)
