Despite the cold, drizzling weather, people still like to go to the bookstore which was good news for me. Borders in East Cobb at the Avenues is one of my favorite bookstores. I had a fun time, meeting new folks and even a couple of school age children that were in awe of meeting a real writer and wanted a bookmark. So funny, but I suppose I would have felt the same way at the age of 7 or 8. I'm pretty new to all this but it amazed me as I sat greeting everyone when they walked through the door, that the traffic was definitely more men today than women! When you have to sit still, you tend to notice things like that. Hence the man that bought my book in the picture. Yes, it was only one man, but I already know of 6 who've read and enjoyed my book. I never would've dreamed it possible!
While I sipped on a mocha of Seattle's Best, I listened to the Assistant Manager, Jessica, announce every half hour, that Maggie Brendan was there signing her book. Jessica was very kind to me and encouraging.
When my time concluded, the Manager,John Alford, had me autograph all the rest of my books and told me that I did well. Exactly what an author loves to hear!
What a satisfying ending to a very dreary March afternoon. I hope you had a good weekend so far. :) Happy Reading...
