So the kids swooped in for the stuffed puppies, horse head finger puppets, pencils, tattoos and football key chains.
The adults ... well, some gave me curious looks, even a smile or two, as they rushed to the check out desk, their arms laden with books, not mine. For the record, I sold two books, but had some nice conversations with a few people. I keep wondering: do I have halitosis? I advertised the signing quite a bit, even put 10 second ads on the local TV station. Hey, that's cool seeing your book cover on TV. Of course, if you blinked you missed them.
Oh, well. Some signings are good, others not so much. But I enjoy them all. The president of Friends of the Library wants me to come back in the spring. If you've been dying to see my crinolines (you know you have) here they are. Now you can tell your friends what crinolines look like.
Me and Jim, President of Friends of the Library
