After the Tour

Okay, it wasn’t exactly a whole book tour. There was only one official stop on this ‘leg’. I spent much of the tour visiting friends and relatives. But the main reason for going back to Norwich, New York, was for Colorscape.

Colorscape is a juried arts and crafts show, ranked in the top 200 in the United State. The library there, Guernsey Memorial Library, invited us to represent local authors in their Literary Arts tent. For me, it was more than a craft show. It was a chance to sell some books of my own and to sit with my co-author, Abby McKissick-Cortez, and catch up. We met some very enthusiastic local fans we knew who brought books for us to sign. We met new friends and we reconnected with a few from high school days. Yes, I am a local author, back there.

This was a first for both Abby and I, sitting at a table and signing books as if we were official authors. It didn’t feel a lot different, inside us. But as we saw the reaction of those who brought books for us to sign, in their eyes, indeed we are very different than we were the day before. And for now, that’s good enough.

More later, but until then ,

Keep Writing!
