I went to my first ever booksigning yesterday. It was for a local author, Cindy Gerard. She has her first romantic suspense out this month and it looks really good. I never would have heard about the signing if there hadn't been an article in the paper last week. The used bookstore where it was at is one I only go to every so often, even though I love it. After all, I do have a lot of books already, so I don't frequent the UBS regularly.
Cindy was really nice. I've never read her books, so I couldn't really gush about how much I loved her. *g* I did promise to blog about her book on here once I'd read it and then send her the link. So I'm going to work on reading the book sometime this month. Meaning sometime in the next week and a half since I'm going on a mini-vacation the last weekend of the month (to my in-laws. I LOVE my in-laws).
I really like the bookstore where it was at. I hope that they are expanding like it looked when I was there. I'm all for independent bookstore expansion. I think I need to make more of an effort to support the place, too.
I just wish that there would be more advertising about these things. I never would have heard about it if it hadn't been in the paper. I wonder how many other signings there are that I don't hear about. Guess I'll just have to make it a habit to hit the bookstore more often. Not to mention I love the ladies who work there.
Okay, on to writing some reviews of those books that are on my sidebar that say I've finished reading them. They were all pretty good, too.
