Well, I had my first book reading last night! It was so exciting!!! I walked into Barnes & Noble last night and there in the front door was my name, “Amy Mercer” Writing, Discussion, Signing. There was a table covered with our books and chairs set up in front and Cassie Premo Steele, (another writer from the series) and I sat behind the table and talked about writing and signed some books! I’m so glad Cassie was there with me, I think it must be so hard to be a writer sitting there by yourself with no one coming to check out your book. Thankfully I invited my family and friends because they were about the only ones to come and actually buy a book, but it was a dream come true! A dream come true….we read some of our essay to the writer’s group that was meeting and answered questions about writing and all in all, it was a great experience. Thank you Barnes & Noble and thank you Cup of Comfort!
I should add that right before we started reading our essays to the small audience, I tested my blood sugar and was 50! Nice. So I scrambled through my bag for my Skittles and subtly shoved handfuls of candy into my mouth while I waited my turn to read. Nice.
