Here are a few pictures from the event.
I’m getting ready to speak in this shot, above. I’m afraid I’m at that age where, to be comfortable, I need not only a bottle of water and reading glasses, but my personal mini-fan as well.
Here, I’m describing how my characters talk to me. I was getting some strange looks from a few of the audience members!
A much-appreciated round of applause!
Signing books. This is just about where we ran out. 🙁
Part of my neighborhood bookclub showed up to give me support (no, this is not the entire club! I think we must have the biggest book club in North Carolina). They wore these little labels that read “I’m a friend of Diane’s” and “Diane and I read the same books.” I was so touched by their show of support!
All in all, it was a wonderful night. I hope people went home happy and that Before the Storm is keeping them well entertained!
