I know I have told about some of my book signings in other posts, but I felt I needed to have a separate category for it. Well, I’ve had three book signings. One was at the Miller County Courthouse. Judge McNatt and all the ladies that Troy works with, wanted me to come and sign books for them. The judge said I could come back and set up a table in the courthouse and have a big book signing. He’s a very nice person.
Also, I had the book signing at the homeschool meeting, which went really well. Next month we are supposed to have guest homeschoolers from other groups come and share with us. The president of our homeschool group asked me to come back next month for that meeting and sell again.
Then, I had a book signing at Wilburton, Oklahoma. It was at a Christmas Bazaar that was put on by the local Art Guild. My mother-n-law belongs to the guild. They put a really nice article about me in two different newspapers. I did fairly well. It was a bit slow though. The highlight of my day was when 12 year old Alison Corcoran came to see me. She is interested in becoming a writer when she grows up. She was so excited about getting my book. The look on her face made a lump in my throat and I could envision a time when I was exactly like her. She made the whole publishing process worth it. I do hope her dream of being a writer comes true. There is nothing like seeing what you’ve written in print, with your name across the cover.

Saturday, Dec. 11, I had a book signing at the Hooks Public Library. A lot of my family and friends turned out for it. Last weeks disaster was still hanging in the air, like thick smoke. Melanie Hayes, Director of Productions at Tate, was working night and day to get me some new books by book signing time. They came by FedEx, fifteen minutes before we opened the door at the library. I was sweating bullets and Praying that God would do a miracle. I am a child of an awesome God! I couldn’t believe it when Troy walked through the door, holding my new books. The haze of smoke blew away, along with my attitude, right out the door. I was able to relax, (some what) and enjoy the wassle and cookies that were there. Also, good conversation helped. I met a friend of mine’s mother, Paula Vickers. Very nice lady. I hope she enjoys my book. And I had a few more surprise visitors that made my day as well.
To all my readers, I hope you have a blessed day.
