Milestone #1: I MET LINDA WINFREE!!!
I’ve mentioned Linda on this blog several times. She and I have been CP’s since we met online in 2003, although we do more brainstorming and a little proofreading than we do actual critiquing these days. 🙂 Even though I moved to northern Georgia in the summer of 2004, we still conducted busy lives and our plans to meet kept falling through. I was determined to be at Linda’s first book signing and finally, it happened! Linda now has four books available from Samhain in e-book form, but this is her first book available in print.
Milestone #2: LINDA’S WHAT MATTERED MOST IS NOW IN PRINT!
And Linda’s first booksigning was at The Bookstore, in Camilla, GA. Very cool, renovated 100-yr-old building. That’s me – handing her my copy to be signed.
Selling completely out of the 60 (Yes SIXTY!!) copies available and having to resort to Rain Checks promising the buyer an autographed copy. Go, Linda! (See how low that pile is in the 3rd picture compared to the 2nd one?) This author did her homework, sending out press releases in advance. She had not one, but two write-ups in local papers, one of which is on her signing table.
Congratulations on your very successful first signing, Linda! I wish you continued success.
>Awww, sweet. 🙂 Love it!
