I’ve mentioned my booksigning several times here at YAFRESH, so I can’t NOT follow-up on it.
It was a truly awesome event. Complete with boys in tuxedos, girls in prom dresses, pink cookies, pink balloons, vintage prom dresses hanging from the ceiling--the guests got immediately into a party mood.
A big thank you to all who attended, especially Janie Emaus, who regularly reads and comments on YAFRESH, who drove a long way to be there, and then barely got to talk to me at all because I was so busy!
The big promo was that the first ten who wore a prom dress got the book free--and yes, we got ten takers, including two girls who came early to make sure they were first in line, and a mother-of-three who looked absolutely lovely.
I signed for three solid hours--about 100 books! But when it was over, my face hurt as much as my hand because I couldn’t stop smiling. See?
On a scale of 10, I’d have to rate my booksigning as an 11! And thanks to all who sent good wishes!
P.S. I couldn't wear the pink suede jacket because the day was simply too warm. Next time?
