Wow. I am a happy girl. Bob and I are in Charlotte, N.C. right now. Yesterday, Debra and I went out and made sales calls to bookstores in the Charlotte area. We did very well! Most of the stores either bought our books or took them in on consignment. I autographed a LOT of books!
I was invited to do a book signing at Joseph-Beth Booksellers. This was the most amazing bookstore we'd ever seen! It had loft reading rooms, the most beautiful book displays, and a full restaurant. Mere words cannot do this store justice. They are a large independent chain, and recently opened their tenth location. They invited me to do a book signing, when we are in town next :) http://www.joseph-beth.com
Another store that we just loved, was Park Road Books. Sally, the owner, was wonderful. Her store is set up in a very inviting manner with many book titles on display. They had a lovely children's section. She was so friendly and helpful, and made our transaction simple. I will be doing a book signing there too. Check out this store if you are in the Charlotte area. Say hello to Sally! http://firstname.lastname@example.org
Tomorrow we will be in the Bristow, Virginia area and will visit bookstores there. Wish me luck!
Take care and happy reading :)
