I had a long but fun day today. I drove three hours to Topsail Island for a signing, then three hours home. It was hard to be in one of my favorite places in the world and not be able to spend more time there, but I have too much to do here at home. It was worth every minute, though. Here I am with Quarter Moon Books owner Lori Fisher, who had a bunch of my new and older books in stock and a steady flow of customers for me to chat with. I love getting to meet the readers who’ve never heard of me before, and I really love all those readers who’ve read every one of my books. At the right, I’m with one of Lori’s customers, Amanda, who’s a teacher. I wanted a picture of her to give a shout out to teachers! Thanks for the work you do.
After a couple of hours of meeting and greeting, I was back in my car heading home.
On another note, I’m still waiting to hear my editor’s reaction to The Midwife’s Confession, but I have heard that she loves the new book proposal I sent her. I need to do some serious fleshing out of the story and had lots of time in the car today to think about it. She and I will chat about it Monday and then I’ll get down to serious business.
Right now, though, I need a nap.
