Book Signings

On Saturday I went to my nearest Barnes and Noble bookstore for a local author book signing event. There were five authors there, all lined up in a row. It was great, mainly because I wasn’t one of them. I can’t imagine how it would feel to be on display like that. True, it would have been worse to do it alone, or maybe not- imagine if every one of the other author got fans, but you. That would suck.
It just reminded me that being an author is really a test of bravery. It’s not enough that we’re baring our soul in the books we write, we have to stand (or sit) front and center and hope and pray someone will walk up and pick up our book and love it.
Courageous indeed.
So I raise my hat to all of you, all of us, who write our hearts out and let the world have at it.


  1. You will do fine when your time comes! It will be your book you are autographing and people will be buying your story and the fruit of all your hard work will be rewarded:)

    You can do this, I know it!

  2. I always feel really stressed before a booksigning, wondering why I wanted to do it, but then it's lots of fun.
