This weekend was such a whirl. Trip to Portland, a booksigning, come home and then over Puget Sound to Silverdale for the last signing. I can’t believe how fast the time went. But I thought you might like to see some pictures from all these adventures.
Julia Quinn and I were there for a duel event–the booksigning and the Romance Live event–which when they post it, I’ll share a link, just in case you missed it. Let me say, it was way too much fun. Great questions from the audience and via the online folks. I hope Avon plans to do more events like that because it allows so many people to “attend.”
And it was a great place to go. Powells is one my favorite bookstores–I love both the downtown and the Beaverton stores–great book selections and knowledgeable staffs. They put together such good events–great posters:
Loads of books:
And wonderful readers who turned out in droves and patiently waited to meet us. (Shout out to Missy! We were still laughing about Missy/Missing Missy the next day).
Powells asked us to sign all the extra copies and they are there waiting for good homes. You can order a signed copy of Lord Langley is Back in Town or a signed copy of Julia Quinn’s Just Like Heaven from Powells. Order quickly though, as these will go fast–and put a note in the order that you are looking for one of the signed copies. No guarantees, but if you hurry, the copy will be signed.
As for the pictures from the Silverdale signing, I’ve uploaded them to my Facebook page, where you can find the album here.
Of course Portland is also a great place for shopping and I found a wonderful chocolate shop where I picked up treats and at my favorite yarn shop, KnitPurl, they had drinking chocolate–supposedly for drinking while knitting, but I think it would work pretty well for drinking while reading. So this bag of bookspooting treats is now the happy property of Mindy S./@romancebooknerd. Mindy, email me before 6/12/11 and let me know what your address is and I will send along your prize packet.
With all these booksignings this weekend it got me thinking: Where you would like to have your dream booksigning?
