CBA Advance is in town this week, and this afternoon I got to sign copies of Forgiving Solomon Long and hand out postcards promoting Deliver Us From Evelyn. Leading up to the event, I did not know which prospect was scarier -- no people showing up, or a lot of people showing up.
Well, it turned out pretty well -- 70 books signed (about a book a minute). And it was steady enough I did not have much opportunity to freak out or anything.
Since nearly every person is a retailer, those who enjoy the book will in turn stock the book so others can buy it. Pretty nice, indeed.
