Well as you can well imagine, I am having a wonderful time in good ol' St. Louis, home of the Cardinals (so I've been told) and the rap star, Nelly. Do you know they actually have his picture in their St. Louis magazine as an attraction to their fine city? I guess that's when you know that you've arrived when you make it in your city's attraction magazine.
So my first booksigning. Hmm, what can I say? It was great! I came in with 15 discs. (Okay, so I'm no Laurell K. Hamilton, Christine Feehan or Heather Graham but I'm working my way up to it.) But I sold 14 of them! Whoo! Hooo! How cool is that? And since a friend of mine back home asked to buy one, technically I sold all of them. Considering "Adam and E-V-E" was released this past Monday, March 25th, I thought selling more than what I sold to my sister was a bonus! Apparently it was enough to impress my publisher. That's what REALLY counts!
I met some great authors and attended some really worthwhile workshops. Today I'll spend the entire day siteseeing. The Arc has been outside of our hotel this whole time and I have yet to go out and really take a good look at it. I'm trying to convince my sister (site owner for www.ThunderandRoses.com) to do our last dinner at the restaurant on the top floor that spins around. How cool would that be?
Okay, two more fun events for today and then I'm heading home tomorrow. But as my first RT experience, this did not disappoint me. Very laid back and fun. And watching all of the manmeat didn't bother me either. *LOL*
