"Success doesn't come to you…you go to it." ~Marva Collins
Thanks to everyone who made my Borders signing yesterday a terrific success! I ended up selling 31 books (26 of One Night in Memphis, 3 of One Night in Boston, and 2 of Lost in Paradise). Tip: always, always bring extra books with you if you can. The store only ordered 10 copies of Memphis, which sold out in the first 1/2 hour, so I was lucky to have another 20 in the trunk of my car.
Of course, this was my local bookstore, and my first book out in print since 2008, so lots of friends and family showed up. The other authors with me sold only a couple of books each. Still, it was pretty cool to know that I have a small fan base around here :)
And here's my fave pic from yesterday, with 3 former students (notice how proudly they are holding their autographed copies!)...
