Local Authors Night at Aaron's Books

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed me tweeting back in October about the Local Authors Night in Lititz at Aaron's Books. I was so excited I could barely sit still! And since NaNoWriMo set me back as far as blogging goes, I thought I'd spread out the fun and post about it now. Stay tuned for lots of pictures!

My tablemate, Brenda Lee Sieglitz, and me.
Brenda was awesome. We had tons of fun talking books and writing together.

With my mom.

With my dad.

The whole family.

Max was very patient as he hung out for the full two hours.

Friends from our homeschool group dropped by.

Signing a copy for friends.

Friends Sherri, Ron, and Jack are all super supportive of me.

I got a big surprise about halfway through the night when someone came through the door. We met her a year ago, for her release party at Aaron's Books. You may have heard of her. Her name's A.S. King.

This is my I'm-trying-not-to-freak-out-as-I-take-a-picture-with-A.S. King-who-came-by-to-get-a-signed-copy-of-my-book face.

With Sam and Todd, the owners of Aaron's Books. I'm so glad they invited me to come.

With fellow local author Lynne Dempsey and her dog Coconut.

My friends Mary and Kirsten hung out with me.

Out for ice cream at Isabella's.

It's still a little surreal to me that I was actually at a book signing. That's the sort of thing I dreamed about not even a year ago. I had tons of fun and made great new friends.

@Vavó Thanks! :) I wish you could've been there.

So I'm a couple of months late to commenting on this, but hey, I was there and out of my mind excited for you, so I get a little slack. I'm so proud of you. You handled yourself with grace and poise and confidence all night long, even when Amy walked in (I, on the other hand . . . ). :)

I'm thinking that this post going live right after Thanksgiving and around the holidays might've made it not highly visible for some. I want to shout this from the rooftops!

The Magic Violinist said...

@Boquinha Aww, thanks. :) Ha, like I said that night, you're the extroverted version of my introverted excitement.

You're probably right about the timing. I did get some Twitter feedback, though. :)
