The best part of a book tour is finally meeting readers in person and having these readers become new friends. That happened Friday in Georgetown and Austin when readers joined me for lunch and later for dinner before and after my Georgetown signing at the Hill Country Bookstore. It was such a pleasure to spend time with people who have posted comments on my blog and sent me emails during the last few years. Thank you to everyone who has taken time to come see me and to those who are part of my community of readers, writers and friends!
Thank you also to the wonderful Judy Parks of Georgetown who helped arrange my book event as well as some of my publicity. It was Judy’s idea for me to come to Georgetown and I had such a wonderful time in this charming, historic town on the outskirts of Austin.
And now we’re on the road again heading to Katy and Houston where I’m hoping to meet lots more great readers as I wrap up my Texas book tour with three Houston area events.
And because I’ve got some Barnes & Noble gift cards burning a hole in my pocket, I think its time to give away some prizes. Tell me if you’ve ever gone to a book signing and you’re entered. It’s that simple. If you haven’t gone, would you? Or does the idea make you nervous? Contest runs through Monday night and I’ll announce the winners Tuesday morning. Good luck
