Our first book signing was May 17, 2014. It was held at the Brandon ,Florida Barnes and Noble book store. I have to admit it was a lot of fun. Our family and friends all came out to support us. I appreciate their support so much! I was excited and nervous about our first book signing but they made it easy and successful. I suppose I had a fear of failure and a fear of the unknown rolling around inside my brain. Which when I think about it is odd. I used to be the Lead Generator at a Home Depot. I had to stir up leads for all Home Depot At Home Services. That meant I spoke with customers to ask if they needed new roofing, gutters, windows, doors, water heaters, fencing etc. Also once a month I staged a storewide event. I would have Halloween parties,Easter Bunny appearances, Christmas parties vendor demonstrations etc. Every month I had to think of something to draw the customer in and educate them on the services Home Depot has to offer. So you should be able to infer that I am not a shy person. Just the opposite. My kids have always said I know no strangers and that is true. I talk with people at the store, in line at Disney, on our vacations.... So I am not sure why this book signing caused me so much angst. Perhaps because so much of me is in the books. Not that they are about me but are a part of me. I feel loyal to our characters and I KNOW this sounds weird, but I feel like I know them. ANYWAY!!!!!..... Next book signing I will be excited and happy and not nervous at all! (ummmm maybe)...........Blog later Joan
