Went so well! I crawled into a dress my Mom bought for the event (it was actually cute, go figure!) and went to my first signing. Actually, first I made a mad dashing run for a minimiser bra, a pair of shoes, and new lip gloss. I made it in and out of Macy's in 26 minutes... how's that for a record? The bra Gods were smiling at me, because I liked the first one I got. The dress was a little snug across the chest, so i figured a minimiser would do the trick. It didn't. I was seriously afraid that if I took a deep breath the button would pop off and hit the person in the front row! It didn't, but I still couldn't breathe. Turns out I had to give a talk and a reading.
I so wasn't prepared. I heard that it went pretty well, (from bff) but the other BFF told me she would send me critique notes. HA! I've heard that the average number of books sold is six and I sold sixteen and had about twelve people in the audience. Another five or six showed up at the end, so I did pretty well.
Stayed another hour afterwards and had coffee with one of the BFF's. It was nice and relaxing after all the excitement.
Later that night, the dh and I went and celebrated at JAX. One of our friends was playing on the rooftop that night. You can see the river and MT Hood from the roof and we had a blast. All in all a nice weekend.
Thanks to my wonderful CP's I am almost done revising one of my proposals and will send it to the agent today. I have one more article to do and a chapter and a half on my other proposal and then I am done for a while. YAY! Some pix!
Thanks to everyone who came out to support me!
