The weather outside was frightful…

…but a good time was still had at the CD/book signing on Friday night. (And the weather wasn’t that frightful. It’s December. It’s the Northeast. Gotta deal with it.)

It was quite the week of shameless promotion what with papering our small town with posters, appearing in our local newspaper (my wife was in the newspaper twice on the same day – talk about shameless), culminating in an (yawn) early Friday morning appearance on our AM radio station. Then we got our blood drawn.

(What does that have to do with the signing? Nothing. But you’ve got to admit, the word “blood” sure made this boring recap seem more exciting for just a moment.)

Then came the moving of the books from home to Gallery 30, which in our paperless society, you would think should weight a little bit less.

There are two kinds of people I expected to come to the signing – people I know and people I don’t know, but all from our burg. What I didn’t expect was people I don’t know coming from a distance greater than one you’d walk on a December night in the Northeast…because, well, I’m just not that well-known. Yet Tim, who used to read Bo Nanas when it ran Sundays-only in the Washington Post, drove an hour to have me sign books for him. I was so thrilled that I had to give him one of the limited edition Bo Nanas buttons as a prize (which are limited because I didn’t get very many made).

    Awesome. We were stricken with a migraine and child care Friday night, but we came on Saturday and bought stuff! I heard it was packed all the same.

    I don’t know if I’d call it “groupie city,” but people came, which was nice.
