Writers; Wednesday: Scenes from a Book Signing

Our official sign at the Barnes & Noble last weekend:

And my friend Liz Matis and I enjoying a moment together at the signing!

While I can't say whether or not it translated into actual sales (we only had promo items to sign and give away, not print books - the store was trying something new to promote ebooks), it was nice to spend some time with fellow authors and also chat a bit with shoppers. The best strategy seemed to be to give chocolate along with signed promo items as a means of "introducing" ourselves as local writers. It's interesting: some people are totally open and excited about the idea, and others want to shuffle the other way as soon as you approach them.

Anyway, it was a nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Looks like we'll be back there again in time for Mother's Day!
