Red wine and bookstores

Friday, April 16, 2010 at 8:56 am

I met with a group of ladies last night, a spirited bunch who had me giggling from beginning to end. They were my readers, full of great questions about the book, writing and police work. All but one were strangers to me in the beginning, and now none are. I shared in their enthusiasm for reading and they celebrated my love of writing over tables speckled with white and red wine bottles. They are a diverse group, from moms to construction managers and head hunters. Some are teachers with their own tales to tell.

Today, however, will be different. A local independent bookstore is hosting a book signing. I don’t know who or how many. I don’t know if they’re my readers or just curious. And I expect it to be quiet. No wine, just water. Two different days, two different ways, I get to share my work. It has been a very good week.
