Welcome to the very brief book tour. We already had our Facebook launch for A Maiden Weeping several months ago when it came out in the UK. Yesterday we made our typical stops at Mystery Ink in Huntington Beach and Vroman's in Pasadena.
A lovely cake to celebrate. And it was GOOD! Thank you, Mystery Ink!
A display of freebies and the bracelet to raffle off. People put their email addresses on the ticket and dropped it in the cauldron. Knight duckies to give away and magnets.
I gave a little talk to the absolutely full bookshop!
And then on to Vroman's!
We had a dulcimer player. Slightly later than our period but it was lovely background music.
My son helps tend bar with the little elf to the right, my daughter-in-law.
Giving my talk. We had a smaller group than normal but this was expected. It is the summer and the Olympics had started. We prefer the fall. We get a lot more people then.
I love to sign!
We invite our attendees to come join me for dinner afterward at a local Mexican restaurant. A few came to share their time with us. Margaritas! Thanks to everyone who came!
Next week we have one more official stop at Mysterious Galaxy with author Susan Spann. Last chance to get a book signed and to get into the raffle!
