As many of you know, I had my first book signing on Sunday. I'm still on a high from it--and no, not because there was anything funny in the punctuation cupcakes I served.
It's because I'm so grateful and humbled by how many people came out to support me: my family, my high school friends, my writing friends, my yoga friends, my co-workers, my co-workers' friends and family, my former co-workers, my mom's friends, and even some blog friends.
Thank you so so much!
The other girl in the picture is my friend Emily. She used to be the librarian on my campus until she got fired for throwing a book at a student. I'm kidding; she didn't get fired. Nor did she throw a book at a student. Although, that would have been kind of awesome. She just got a different job. But she definitely deserves a shout out because I had her proofread every word I wrote and made her listen to every stupid grammar idea I came up with. Luckily (for me, not her), we're neighbors.
And here's where I'm not so humble: the owners told me I was the first local author to sell out of books! Isn't that cool?
And here's where I engage in shameless promotion: I am having another signing on Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Barnes and Nobles in Manhattan Beach. Here's the address: 1800 Rosecrans Ave., Manhattan Beach, CA 90266.
Come see me! I'm addicted.
