Book Signing

This past Saturday was one of those days.  I had a two-hour book signing at Barnes & Noble.  It was a lovely venue, great-looking new store, nice set-up near the front door with three other writer friends to share the down time.  The manager brought complimentary vanilla latte coffee for several of us, a much appreciated gesture.  But the inspirational author next to me sold out of books due to her church friends stopping by, signing many more copies than I did.  She kept trying to push my "steamy" books, bless her heart, but couldn't seem to interest her clientele.  (Now why, I wonder?)  Store traffic was thin and none of the other authors did too well, either.  To top it all off, as I was signing stock to leave behind, I knocked over my coffee cup and spilled what was left of the latte in my lap.  Let's just say, it wasn't the best book signing I've ever done!  Now you know why authors aren't always fond of these things....
