How I love Quarter Moon Books! Every year, owner Lori Fisher has tweaked her wonderful Topsail Beach store in some exciting new way. This year, she added a patio out front where people can enjoy a smoothie or sip wine from the new wine bar. I love signing books at QMB because, in addition to the people who come specifically to see me, I get to meet so many new readers who wander into the store. They’re always so tan and beachy-looking, unlike the poor writer who’s been cooped up indoors rushing to deadline. Anyhow, I thought you’d enjoy a few pix from my signing there last week. That’s me with some of my wonderful readers, and Lori with Lucy, one of Topsail Island’s beautiful turtles.
