Just a reminder for those in the area that tonight from 7-9 PM, Jewel Day Spa at 1004 N. Elm Street in Greensboro (corner of Elm and Bessemer, across from Cobb Chiropractic) is celebrating their one-year anniversary with an evening of Women Authors & Wine. Yours truly will be there for a reading and book signing along with Greensboro authors Pam Cable and Nicole Hayes. Free admission, food, wine, house tours, and hand and chair massages.
We're expecting a huge turnout. A lot of press went out and the last three days I've had people coming up to me to say they'll be there. Usually what happens is I'll say something to remind people and then they're like, "What? Oh, yeah. You sent me something about that, right? Uh, yeah. We'll try to be there." So it's promising that people appear to have it marked on their calendars.
I need to spend part of today getting ready. There's a lot of stuff that needs taken to these events. Folding table, tablecloth, books, cash box, change, signing pen, cat knick-knacks I use to decorate my table, easel, sign, bookmarks, cards and I'm sure there are things I'm forgetting.
I haven't even looked at my book to decide what story I'm reading. Something short. My take is people come to these events less to hear authors read and more to mingle and enjoy the ambiance. As long as the threatened thunderstorms hold off, we'll be in good shape.
If you're in the area, please stop by! It's going to be much fun!
