The Book Signing

I'm celebrating Wednesday's book signing at Time Tested Books in Sacramento. It was such a wonderful evening, and we sold out the books! But the fun part was introducing friends to friends and seeing all those warm, supportive faces. I've done signings in the past at schools, but this was my first bookstore signing. I have more pictures about the signing and also Peter Keat's wonderful bookstore, Time Tested Books, at my other blog next door: Elizabeth Varadan's Fourth Wish. 
Fellow writers and teachers

Maddy, the star of the super
trailer her dad made for the book.
She was the perfect Imogene.

I was reading from my book.
They were such a good audience!
I've been busy setting up readings and school visits and the like these past weeks, so I haven't really done much posting, but come back next week for a review of a terrific mystery -- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle figures in it . . .



Meanwhile - Celebrate the small things and join the hop. The link list is at Alexa Cain's great blog HERE, and her co-hosts are

    1. Hi, Lexa, "adorable" is a word i heard several times to describe Maddy. And I did so appreciate the great and supportive turn out. This was my first signing in a book store.
