A Book Signing

Last weekend was my very first book signing. I thought I would be nervous, but it was exciting to connect with readers. My favorite guest was a young girl who was about 8 or 9 years old. With eyes wide with wonder, she asked if I was the writer, then asked if I was famous. Not yet, but that didn't convince her, judging by the expression on her face when I caught her watching me. I wonder if she will grow up to be a writer someday.

Many thanks to my good friends Caroline and Lora for making this book signing a success! They are fantastic coordinators. Any organization would be lucky to have them on their board;)

They set a great mood with balloons....
and cake. It looks like a book!

I did a reading, and really wished I had a podium.

People did some reading of their own.
I had plenty of books to sign, with a cheat sheet of phrases I wrote down earlier in the week in case I got writer's block.
Did I mention the cake? It was the icing on a really great day! Look at me, having my cake and eating it too!


  1. Congratulations, Jill! So excited for you that this went so well.

  2. Hee, and I'm gonna comment again. I nominated you for the Liebster Award, so I could introduce you to people who read my blog! It's here.

    Congrats on your release!
