Kitty’s First Book Signing

A week ago Saturday I participated in my first book signing! It was so much fun! The signing took place at my RWA meeting, the Orange County Chapter of the Romance Writers of America.

I got to sign my romantic comedy Little Miss Lovesick – my very first book. 🙂 And I was one of 16 authors signing our anthology, Romancing the Pages.

What a hoot with all sixteen of us lined up at tables with a line of our friends waiting to get sixteen autographs!

At the signing, I learned several interesting things:

  • You should figure out what you’re going to write besides your name before the signing.
  • It’s hard to talk and write at the same time.
  • It’s hard to appear friendly when you’re not talking to the person.
  • When you talk about one thing and write something else, you are eventually going to write what you just said. And then you have to fix it!
  • Makeup and pretty, comfortable clothes that make you feel good about yourself and then you’re even friendlier.
  • A nice V-cut blouse looks good…but I began to wonder if my cleavage was showing. My friends laughingly assured me it wasn’t. 😀
  • Chatting up all the wonderful people who asked for my autograph made for a long line.

I had a great time. I think everyone had a great time. And all I can think of is – I can’t wait to do it again! 😀

    So glad you enjoyed the signing! It was so much fun, and full of energy. Yes, definitely good to think of all those things before putting pen to paper. Even … what type of pen you will use! I know one writer who uses this “rolling” wheel — total stationary item — to set the ink afterward so it doesn’t smear!

      Ooo, that sounds like an interesting tool! I love gel pens but they do smear if you’re not careful. Maybe I can find the item your friend has. Cool!

      Oh my gosh, Coleen, SO MUCH FUN! I get giggly just thinking about it. John says I just love to be the center of attention. I wish I could argue. LOL!
