Today, from 1-4, I'll be at Books Off Main on Oak Street in downtown Porterville I'll be talking about and signing copies of Angel Lost..
This is the only bookstore we have in Porterville. It's a neat and well-organized used bookstore. The only new books they carry are by local authors like me. The owners are two retired nurses who are also best friends. Both have little dog companions they bring to work with them.
They kindly set up refreshments when I do one of these signings. It's a tiny store and they don't have much seating, so today we're bringing four folding chairs. Though I don't give a talk when I make an appearance here, in the past people like to hang out and visit. When it get crowded, some leave and others sit down to chat.
As I'm writing this it's still dark outside so I have no idea what the weather will be like today.
You never know how these things will work out. I had a nice article about the book and the signing in the local newspaper about 3 weeks ago and a notice was in again on Thursday in the weekend happenings. I've promoted on Facebook and Twitter, sent out invitations to people who like to come to my signings--friends and fans--and I've mentioned it on other online venues.
I'll report back how it went tomorrow.
