|The promotional display they set up in the store all week.|
It’s the best feeling in the UNIVERSE to work so hard on a big project and see it come to fruition! Here are some pictures from my first signing for Miss Scarlet. This was at Changing Hands bookstore in Tempe, AZ. I had a great crowd, the time flew by too fast!
These are the swag gifts I made. They are lint brushes to go with the theme of Miss Scarlet being a dressmaker. I embellished them with buttons and sparkly gems!
Here is one half of the crowd, this was right before I started my reading. It’s always scary to have your first signing and figuring out what portion to read from the book. I went with something light and funny, but that set the tone of the plot.
Here is the other half of the crowd. The staff had to go get more chairs and hurry to set them up! Yay! People came! The gorgeous dame in the red blouse is my dear friend Camille Kimball, she was in my writing group from 2004! She went on to author books too!
Here I am with one of my writing idols – Stella Pope Duarte. At first, when I saw her at the bookstore, I thought she was there to shop. But no – she was there for me! “I’m here to support you, Kathy, I’m very proud of you!” Tears sprang to my eyes. I was upset because none of my family was able to make it to my big event (They had good excuses). So to hear Stella tell me those words made me very happy.
