My Book Signing Had a Great Beginning...

I just wanted to share with you all some happy news regarding my second book signing at Borders (which was yesterday). After we (my mother and I) arrived and noticed they only had one copy of each of my titles they ordered on display, we were puzzled because they should have 17 display copies. "We sold them!" was the answer we received when we asked. I was almost speechless when I heard that. They had sold 14 of the display copies before my signing and just reserved the last display copy for each title. I wonder if more copies would be sold if they had more; guess I'll never know.

On another note: I always bring a newsletter signup sheet to my signings, so I've got a handful of people signing up for my newsletter, Inspiration from a Blind, yesterday. I also gave out my bookmarks and business cards to anyone who passed by.

Awesome, Shirley!!! That must have felt great!

One tip: bring extra copies in your (or parents') vehicle or in a tote bag.
