The Amazing Mr. K’s and My First Signing

So today I had my first signing.  I was pretty nervous, but the people at Mr. K’s  (Greenville, SC)  were so gracious.  I had no idea what to expect because this was my first signing.  I (somewhat naively) ordered 100 books.  Unless you’re JK Rowling or have some sort of cult following, it’s unlikely that the turnout for an event is going to be huge so needless to say I haven plenty of books left over for the other two signings that I have this week.  That’s okay.  It would be a real problem if I had to cancel a signing because I couldn’t get enough books shipped to me.

All in all, I met some amazing people and did rather well in sales.  The staff even told me that people had come in earlier that week to request the book before it had even been released!  I owe a huge thanks to Ken M., Nancy C., Greg C., Becky K., Alyssa K., Katie C., Lydia C., Dana W., and the wonderful staff at Mr. K’s for making my first signing such a positive experience.
