The signing went well yesterday at Sundog Books in Seaside. They sold out of A PLACE TO START A FAMILY and NOW YOU SEE THEM, NOW YOU DON’T and had only four copies left of CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS.
One highlight of the signing was meeting Pat Nesbitt from Bowling Green, Kentucky, who enjoys my blog and was kind enough to buy several books for family and friends. I also met two couples from Springfield so we enjoyed our visit.
My thanks to the folks at Sundog Books for hosting me. That is one busy store!
On Saturday we drove to Seaside to shop at the Farmers’ Market. While there I dropped into the book store, Sundog Books, to say hi to the gang and see if they still had some of my titles in stock from my signing in March. They did. They were out of PIRATES and COWBOYS but had CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS and A PLACE TO START A FAMILY in stock.
One of the ladies saw me come in and followed me around to the children’s books. A customer and her niece overheard our conversation and asked if I had written the books I was holding. Turned out she is a librarian at English Landing, a school in St. Louis. We had a good conversation and I signed one of the books for her school library. It was a pleasant experience. Last time I was there, signing, I met two couples from a community near Springfield. Once before that my friend and co-author, Mary Jo Fresch, came by. Seaside is a busy place and that book store is exceptional.
Off to sign books today at Sundog Books, Seaside, Florida. The store is a popular landmark in this area. There isn’t enough space to sign inside so I’ll be given a chair and table on the front porch. You can’t hope for a more picturesque location. Crowds of people stroll up and down the sidewalk, many headed to the restaurant next door called Great Southern, another destination spot.
Today’s forecast calls for rain. I hope it doesn’t put a damper on my front porch perch and keep would be customers cooped up in their condos. Cross your fingers for me.
