That Bookstore in Blytheville book signing in images

The Spring Fling book signing was a total hit. We had so much fun at That Bookstore in Blytheville. The owner, Chris, and the clerks who were working there were so good to us. It was amazing to be able to chat with the customers who came in and browsed.

We hope to be able to go back maybe in the fall. Here is a pictorial for you of the store and our day there. Click on any image to make it bigger.

The first thing that happened after we got set up was we got to sign a special chair for honored guests. All the authors who visit do this and we were in some fine company! That Bookstore in Blytheville had great ways to make authors feel welcome.

Then, Chris surprised us with a newspaper article that had came out in the Courier on April 11 one week before our visit.

THEN! I found my book. Shelved. And OMG. It felt so real all of a sudden. I had finally done those things that I always told myself I would do. I would get my book on a shelf in a bookstore and I would be so happy. I totally was.

I guess that’s about it. But man, we had such fun. Laughed a lot. And cannot wait to go back!
