I love my local bookstore. My daughter and I stopped by Blue Frog Books today with a few copies of The Fall of Our Secrets and my press release. I started with, "I live in town, and I have a book coming out next month." The proprietor smiled, glanced at the gorgeous book (it really is, thanks to Martin Blanco) in my daughter's hands, and said, "Well, then, let's set you up to do a signing!" I thanked him for making things easy and saving me the song and dance I had planned--which he said I was welcome to do if I liked (I declined).
We talked about time frames, and I learned that James Brown's son, Daryl Brown, will be at the Blue Frog next Tuesday August 12th on his national book tour with his book, Inside the Godfather, Never-Before-Told Stories of James Brown by His Inner Circle. Pretty cool. Sounds like I'm in good company.
We decided on Saturday, October 25th, 12:30 to 2:30, for my signing. This might end up being a nice alternative for those who can't make it out to the release party October 2nd. Today was a very productive day, as I also learned I'll be participating in a fun ladies night event at another local business (more details soon!). Man, I love it when I have a Saturday off from my dayjob!
