This Friday and Saurday I will be attending Lori Foster and Dianne Castell’s Reader/Author Get Together. There will be approximately 55 published authors and several are Samhain authors. I’m excited to meet them in person. Editors and agents will be present. I didn’t sign up for an interview because I don’t have my “sister” book finished. I didn’t think anyone would appreciate me using an appointment slot when I didn’t have a completed manuscript to pitch. I can’t wait to meet the 100 readers. It might be more now. Three authors will be assigned to a table but the readers change tables so that will be fun. I’m worried about the book signing though since I’m an unknown author. I told Dianne that I probably won’t sell any books, but she said, “Don’t worry. Readers love new authors.”
I went shopping for clothes to wear for this event yesterday. Dianne and Lori said it will be casual and they are going to wear jeans and T-shirts. But I figure they are best-selling authors and will be busy running around to answer questions and etc. On Friday night I’m going to wear jean capris and the author T-shirt I purchased from Amazon. Lori designed the shirt and my book cover of NO GREATER LOSS is on the back of the T-shirt so that is thrilling to me. I just feel that I should be dressed up a bit for the book signing so I bought a pair of black capris and a pale pink shirt. I got a pair of those comfortable black ballet type of shoes.
I didn’t lose the weight I wanted to, but the black capris are slimming. Okay, probably not as slimming as I’d like but I’m happy that I have the clothes ready.
And now I better get busy writing while the house is quiet.
