Today I received a list of dates Chapters sent my publisher for signings. There are seven different Chapters and Coles store on the list. I’m giving this list some thought as I noticed for instance there’s a booking for Bridgewater and one for New Minas on the same day an hour and a half a part. I’m not even sure I can make it to New Minas from Bridgewater in just 90 minutes. And then of course one never knows what the roads will be like on that day as it is late in November.. I really wouldn’t want to show up late for a signing. I might see if they can change the time on that one by a half hour. It’s worth asking. I know I won’t be able to make it to all these signing dates but I’m going to do the best I can. I’ll be working too and this complicates matters as one of the signings is during the week. That’s one definitely off my list. I’m not sure if they will try to reschedule some of these or not. It is called an “author signing wish list” so we’ll see.
I’ve also been contacted by two local papers who want to do a story before the book launch. The next few months are going to be busy. And dare I say I received a parcel yesterday? I mean the parcel, the one I’ve been waiting for all this time. There were plenty of emotions going on as I struggled to open it. Boy do they tape those things up well. I was speechless, something that doesn’t happen often. What a feeling. I’ve looked at the cover countless times. It doesn’t change. A pretty sweet feeling!
So just in case anyone is wondering I’m holding out showing the book to anyone until the book launch so I guess everyone’s just going to have to wait until the 25th.
