What a Night! (Book Signing 2)
What could be better than a first book signing? A second! The date: March 13, 2001. The time: 6:00 p.m. The place: Central Florida.
Could I have asked for better weather? Nope! The day was cooling down and the sun showed mercy. The sky was mostly clear with scattered puffs of cotton-ball-like clouds. There was a lovely breeze that was much appreciated and Mother Nature was in a more than hospitable mood.
As promised, the P.O.W. artists provided a wonderful exhibit of original artwork. My friend, artist, Sharon Hunt, was also featured in a local publication that chronicled her artistic rise and philanthropic spirit which I was honored to read. Our host, Ken Harris, artist, and gallery owner, was, as always, a wonderfully gracious host.
A slue of ballroom dancers 'graced' us with their passionately performed waltzes, salsas, tangos, swing dances, and many more stunning displays.
And then there was me...
A nervous nelly, as usual, who got to address the large crowd of art patrons, mingle with a variety of curious folk who happily asked me questions concerning The Siren Series as well as my background (origin, education, etc.). By the end of the evening, I had made quite a few contacts, sold and signed several books, promoted my website, endorsed Selena's Song, Aria, and the soon-to-be-released, Acapella all while wearing sneakers and summer wear (yes, that was a poke at my Northern family members and friends).
To all of you who attended: Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedules to stop by and chat with an Island Girl who is overjoyed by your encouragement and clamoring for the next book! You have made my year!
Best of all though: I was able to share the occasion with my husband, mother, younger sister, my youngest daughter, and a very good friend, Tad.
All in all, the event was a huge success and I cannot wait to do it all again soon!
So, until the next time we meet...
I wish you peace, joy, and great books to read!
