Saturday was fun. The reading/signing at B & N went really well. Sold some books (and not just to family!). The manager was nice enough to set me up at the front of the store, so as to catch the attention of the passers-by in the mall as well as those who were in the store to browse for books.
Had a few of my buddies from QUICK FIX along with me, providing moral support:
That's Molly-O (the "O" for "orangutan," obviously), Ciel's little honorary cousin, whose aura-adapting talent emerges at an awkward time in the book. And on top of the candy basket is Herbert, Ciel's bother James's pet chameleon. (You might have to squint to see him.)
All right, they're not real. They're props. As an ex-(or maybe not-so-ex-)-actress, I know the importance of a good prop to help you through a performance.
Oh, and "JENFACE" (the paper doll version of @JentheAmazing) was there, too. She came to my very first signing of IN A FIX last year, so I brought her along for good luck this time, too.
(Aside to Jen: Good news! There was no tornado this time!)
Anyway, now that the hooplah has died down a bit, I'm plowing ahead with the next book...
