See You In San Francisco!
With the release of the new book, Deep in the Heart of Trouble, I've done a flurry of book signings lately. But I have to admit, this is the first time I've ever seen my name on a marquee and that was kind of fun and a bit surreal.
I did that particular book signing with Romantic Suspense author Laura Griffin. I'd never read Laura's books before, but she signed one for me and I read it this past weekend. Loved it and went out to buy her second one. Her books have an Evanovich feel to them--a mixture of humor, romance and suspense. (Disclaimer: If you are sensitive to sensuality content, be aware that Griffin's novels are secular.) She's won me over, though, and I intend to keep my eye on the shelves for her upcoming September release, Thread of Fear.
I also did a signing in the Orlando area with Cathy Marie Hake (in the middle wearing the white jacket) and Judith Miller (far right). A local librarian, Linda Goff (next to me), was the force behind this event and I really enjoyed meeting her, along with another local librarian and the staff of the Borders we were signing at. Linda gave us each a star-shaped lapel-pin that lights up when you wear it. It is now part of my standard book-signing equipment. :)
If you've missed these signings, I'll be in San Francisco this week for a "Literacy for Life" book signing at the San Francisco Marriott on Wednesday (July 30) from 5:30 to 7:30. I'll be joining over 500 other romance authors, so if you come, bring your walking shoes! The event is a fund raiser for ProLiteracy Worldwide. Hope to see you there!

Yay! Im so excited. Im still planning on going.
I think you need to come to GA!! You look so cute in your dress. So fun and summery!
How fun! You should come to Minnesota!
Ach, ya just might want to tour the entire of the United States so none of us fans feel left out, as we all would very much like the opportunity to meet our beloved author! But I'd happily travel to the next-state-over if there was the opportunity of meetin' ya. Perhaps one day I shall have the chance, as well as the rest of us here on the website. Best wishes to ya either way!
It was so great meeting you last night at the San Francisco conv. (I'm Evelyn's friend :) ). I began reading one of your books last night--very good! I'm about to go continue to delve in. :) Anyway, here is the pic that was taken last night: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=30052728&l=0428d&id=175800257 Hope the rest of your trip in S.F. goes fabulously. :)
Why doesn't a Christian book convention--including way-cool authors like you, Miz Dee--ever come to the Chicago area???? It's a major hub!!!! The Left Behind series was based there and some Christian authors even live in the area!!! And it's pretty much kinda sorta in the middle of the country!!!!
"And it's pretty much sorta the middle of the country!" haha Sorry, that made me laugh, you sound so sure of yourself, Barb! lol
