I’m back! And I have exciting news for you.

I’ve just returned from Nashville, Tennessee where I attended a book signing that wasput on by the PLA (Public Library Association). This event was full of librarians looking for books, etc. to fill their libraries.

There were so many booths there…too many to visit. The conference went from Wednesday to Friday, and a person could not possibly see everything there was to see in that amount of time. Of course, there were a lot of authors signing their books, but more than that, there were oodles of things that were associated with libraries and learning.

 

There even was karaoke in the lobby.IMG_0456

 

 

 

 

 

 

The people I met were awesome, too. Below is a picture of the representatives for Ingram (the distributors that my publisher uses).

I received a pleasant surprise when I arrived at the Ingram booth. One of the ladies informed me that some people were excited to see me and get a signed copy of Harry’s second book, The Jamaican Mission, (which is on Amazon for preorder now). Imagine how I felt! All of the books that my publisher sent for me to sign were gone before my allotted time was up. Yippee! It seems that a lot of librarians love cats. One even stopped to tell me that their library had a cat for a mascot!

After my first session was done, my friend and I had the pleasure of meeting with another author for lunch. Some of you might know her. Carla Vergot is the creator of Lily Barlow. Carla has written two smashing books starring her lovable character. You can visit with Carla on her FB group, “Carla Vergot’s Back Porch”.

Below is a picture of my friend and I at Barlines where we had lunch with Carla. (I’m the one in the red sweater.) Even though it was first time we had met Carla, we felt as if we had known her for years.

All in all, it was a great trip. I met some wonderful people and I’m looking forward to the next signing.
