Here I sit in an independent bookstore. Around me are shelves with masterful creations by some pretty amazing authors I admire. I have a plate of cookies in front of me for the guests. And my copies of my book are on display.
Yet no one has come.
It's raining outside. A lovely summer afternoon with all kinds of activities all over town.
Do I dream of book signings with lines out the door? Of course! Do I get upset and feel like my time has been wasted when these smaller signings don't take off? Nah. I can't let it get me down. This quiet time has given me a chance to blog, enjoy a cookie (okay...maybe two...), and sit among the printed books I cherish.
There is a shelf full of books from Marcher Lord Press. Books by people I'm fortunate enough to know. Self-pubbed, indie-pubbed. It's a really neat little place.
