Book Signing at Book World in Eagle River, WI
I had a great time in Eagle River, Wisconsin at Book World. Sue Greenman, the store manager, was loads of fun. Here she is on the right with me. Sue and her assistant, Laurie, filled me in on all the local happenings, that is, in between when she rang up sales and I hawked Two Wrongs and Girl of My Dreams. Lots of coming and going of customers since the store is located on Wall Street, the main street in town, and it just happened to be the popular Cranberry Fest weekend. That event is usually a madhouse and today was no exception. The streets were jammed even before we entered the main thoroughfare. The sunny day helped, since the week before was generally cloudy.
This time my mystery, Two Wrongs, though not the latest release, was more popular than the romantic comedy, Girl of My Dreams. Because I can't predict readers' preferences, I always bring both along just in case. Good thing I did. Here I am holding them up. No, I didn't stand in that position all day. Just wanted a photo with both books in it.
I've been reinvited by Sue to come back again for the Saturday of next year's Cranberry Fest. I intend to take her up on her offer. I wouldn't miss it. It was a great way to spend the last day of my vacation in Wisconsin.
