What a blast. I haven’t had a rush of adrenaline like that in years. It was thrilling to be able to talk to people about my characters, the time period, why I wrote it, what my inspiration was, etc. And they were so enthusiastic!
I got into several discussions about old classic movies (which I love). One in particular that served as a big inspiration while writing Dark Hollywood Nights was A Philadelphia Story. I’m all about witty banter between main characters.
Either way, the experience was unlike anything else. I admit, I was terrified of it being a huge failure, but I’m proud to say I sold all of the books we had available and they’re going to try and order in about 20 more (some people had to order theirs because by the time they got there, we’d sold out)! I’d call that a success. 🙂
So here are a few pics for your enjoyment:
And of course, the book shot!
What a rush! I had a fantastic time. The staff at B&N were so helpful and attentive. The event ran smoothly and we all had some great chatter and laughs. It was a good time all around.
