On October 4, five of us gathered for a booksigning at the Hastings in San Marcus. Wow, what a fabulous day thanks to the efforts of Diana Castilleja. We all showed up around 2:00 PM and the store managers welcomed us like we were queens and we were. We had the perfect spot, right in front so no one got by us without a howdy-do.
We stayed until 5:00 PM when most of us had to leave and the store kept quite a few copies to place on their special local author's shelf.
I love these group signings because we get to visit with each other about industry issues and life in general. Overall, a fun ladies' day out. They say group signings aren't good because they are more intimidating for the customer but I think single author signings are just as intimidating. Some people just don't like talking to strangers but the folks we encountered that day were all gracious and inquisitive.
