Yesterday I received my first in-person request to sign a book. Casey Blackwell, who YA book review blog is thebookishtype.blogspot.com, just as the speed dating session was over pulled out her copy of my book and asked me politely to sign her book. It was sweet and made me smile. She was kind enough to let me take her picture and gave me permission to post it. It was a nice ending to a flurry of pitches, card-giving out sessions, and trying to remember who I’d said what to and in what order. Casey’s got a great blog site and I look forward to seeing her review of Open Wounds there.
Postscript: I didn’t know this but the page in the book with the title but nothing else is for author signatures. Sometimes it’s called the signature page. Of course it is. Author’s can also personalize their signature by addressing some comment to the individual and putting their name there. Jim Higley told me this as he signed his book, Bobblehead Dad, for me. (thanks, Jim!).
I need to get out more often.
Why didn’t I know this?
Well, at least now I do…
